About JK Cement SwachhAbility Run

Major D P Singh

Kargil War veteran

The JK Cement SwacchAbility Run is the brainchild of Kargil War veteran Major D P Singh. A Limca Book of Records holder, Major Singh is India’s first blade runner who has more than 18 marathons to his credit.

He was grievously injured during the Kargil War and lost his leg but he did not let his disability affect him. Major Singh says “After 10 years of my injury during Kargil war, I started running half marathon using an artificial leg to convey the message to the society that ability is a state of mind”. As a 100% disabled and an amputee, this was the beginning of my journey of turning every adversity into an opportunity.

To reach out to the Divyangs and to encourage them to not give up, he formed a group, The Challenging Ones (TCO) in 2011. TCO uses sports as medium to empower Divyangs and it aspires to enable them to extend their abilities and bring laurels to the Country in various Paralympic sports. Today, TCO has a membership of 1100 amputees across India and more than 120 amputees have participated in various marathons across India. This has instilled confidence in them and not only kindled a fire in them, to do something big, but also changed the perception of society towards Divyangs.

There is a dire need of instilling this confidence in Divyangs across the country and also change the perception of society towards them by making them showcase their hidden abilities by performing on ground. This was the guiding thought behind organizing the JK Cement SwachhAbility Run. JK Cement SwachhAbility Run is a very important step towards promoting two important causes – inclusion of Divyangs as equal and Swachh Bharat.

It is a unique run where Divyangs along with all the participants will clean a designated area after the event as a part of the Swacch Drive. This is a humble beginning and we look forward to your support in making JK Cement SwachhAbility Run a national phenomenon.
