Hubballi

The waves of SwachhAbility directed towards Hubballi with a remarkable momentum. Veer Nari Smt. Mahadevi Koppad, W/O martyred Lance Naik Hanumanthappa Koppad, who was miraculously rescued after being buried under 25 feet of snow for six days in Siachen, flagged off the run and with her presence infused the congregation with the feeling of patriotism and selfless love for the nation. The two runs, 10 km and 3 km, had people from all walks of life participating with the desire to bring the change in the society and make it better and inclusive. The spirit of Divyangs and energy of school children was unexpectedly enlightening for everyone. With their vivacity and thrill, they encouraged everyone else to join them.

Accomplishing the mission was a strenuous task but the firm determination to bring the much needed change in the Indian society kept us moving forward and JK Cement SwachhAbility Run was warmly welcomed by the Silicon Valley of India, Bengaluru. The flag off by the Veer Naris was a tribute to our martyrs and filled each one of the participants with a desire and power to contribute in nation building. As they ran along the streets of the city, with every breath they visualized a better India. This feeling kept the fatigue away and they took each step confidently and in favour of the nation.

The Ayurvigyan Auditorium of Army Referral & Research Hospital came to life with the presence of our Chief Guest, Mr. Hardeep Singh Puri, Hon’ble Minister of State (Independent Charge) in the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, several honourable dignitaries, war heroes & the ever-enthusiastic school children. The presence of Gautam Gambhir was a pleasant surprise for one and all present. We had 3 real life heroes namely- Divyanshu Ganatra, Ajay Raj and Ranpal, amongst us, who, inspite of their disabilities, have given back so much to the society.
