Striding for a noble cause The Powai Run 2023 blended social cause, fitness and entertainment

The Powai Run 2023 highlighted corporate commitment to inclusivity

On March 5, we collaborated with the Rotary Club of Mumbai Lakers to organize the Powai Run 2023, a community marathon promoting diversity, inclusivity, and equality under the theme #EmbraceEquity. The event, held just before the Holi festival, brought together over 6500 participants from various backgrounds supporting a cause.

10,000 + people from the community
6900 runners
50 persons with disability ran alongside 50 CXOs

One South Avenue in Downtown Powai, which houses some of our marquee office assets, was the perfect starting point for the three different runs — 10 km, four km, and an invite-only CXO run spanning four km. The CXO run, held in partnership with the Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation, aimed to support people with disability by encouraging corporate leaders to run as allies with visually impaired individuals or individually. Among the prominent participants were Frank Schloeder, Managing Director, Hafele South Asia, Soumya Sen, Director-Compensation and Benefits, Asia Pacific & Japan, Abbott Healthcare, Shefali Mian, Director-Compensation and Benefits, India, Abbott Healthcare, Ramesh Nair, CEO, Colliers India, Anil Bhatia, VP and MD, Emerson, and Gautam Saraf, MD, Mumbai and New Business at Cushman & Wakefield.

The Powai Run 2023 wasn’t just about promoting fitness and inclusivity, but also about having fun and fostering community engagement. The event featured live music performances, a variety of food stalls, and exciting shopping pop-ups, creating a festive atmosphere that brought the entire Powai community together. It was a perfect blend of entertainment and social cause, and we are thrilled to have been a part of such an inspiring event.
