Actor-Producer Suman Nagarkar is a seasoned marathon runner. She has accomplished over 50 half marathons and 25 full marathons. Now she is working for a trigger referred to as RUN2FEED, which is the brainchild of Bengaluru runners Dharmendra and Santosh Padmanabhan.
Suman and her husband Gurudev Nagaraja (additionally a runner), are part of the 20-member workforce that began working from July 1. The duo will likely be joined by runners from throughout namma metro metropolis and Mumbai, who will likely be linked to one another just about.
The intention of the run is to present dry ration to those that have been affected by the lockdown and lack of jobs to COVID -19. “We will be running around 400 kilometers in 20 days which by itself is a challenge. The idea is for each runner to run 20 kilometers each day close to their homes individually.”
Gurudev provides, “In the given situation, we cannot run together and need to follow the health guide lines too. So each runner has to follow the health guidelines, manage social distancing.”
“We are planning on raising 10 lakh,” shares Suman, who’s the one superstar runner from Karnataka.
“All of us are runners. And the reason why we are running 20 kilometers for 20 days is because the year 2020 has been challenging for many. Our run is also sending out a positive message saying that we can still look at the positive and be hopeful, despite the challenges,” explains the actor.
In Bengaluru the runners are becoming a member of in from Jayanagar and Marathahalli. “We have already completed four days of running now. And we are accepting new runners too. In fact, some have connected with us saying they can run just five kilometers a day for the cause and some have offered to just walk. We are happy and are willing to encourage anyone to join in for the cause,” reveals Gurudev.
