The T-Shirt of the same was launched on Tuesday by Stephen Raveendra, Police Commissioner, Cyberabad, in a brief launch function held in Cyberabad Police Commissionerate in Gachibowli.
Addressing immediately after the launch, Stephen Raveendra said it is run with a difference. It is a great run. Cyberabad Police got associated with it last year, and this year too, we will be happy to get associated with such an event. It is not a sports event. It is an awareness run which is the need of the hour. And I am happy to note that it is a global event. Runners from 130 countries are expected to participate. We are proud to associate with it. Cyberabad Police will be the organisers in this endeavour.
The 6th edition of the run with the theme ‘Be Light’ will have a participation of over 1 lakh people from 130 plus countries, disclosed Dr. Chinnababu Sunkavalli, Senior Consultant Robotic Surgical Oncologist and the Founder of GRACE (Global Research And Cancer Education) Cancer Foundation
The Run will be held in three different categories–5K, 10K, and 21.1K(Half Marathon). Over 20,000 participants are expected to participate in the event to be held in the Gachibowli.
The format is Hybrid–In-person as well as Virtual. Probably it is the only Run in India that is held in two different formats.
The run will be organised by GRACE Cancer Foundation, a Hyderabad-based non-profit organisation founded to alleviate cancer burden through Education, Early Detection, Treatment, Rehabilitation and cutting-edge Research. Every participant not only gets to run their favourite distance, but they also help a good cause by donating a portion of their registration fee to cancer screening and awareness” Dr Chinababu said
