The message of Pinkathon is clear. Women, we need you. Your families need you, and not just your children, but your society, your country needs you. In the words of Bishop Tutu and countless wise men before and since, “If we are going to see real development in the world then our best investment is WOMEN!” the need of this hour and this time, is for women to come together as a community to drive positivity in progress and good health for all, starting with THEMSELVES! In a country like ours, with a culture that has no tradition of sports for all, or exercise or of healthy lifestyle practises, change is needed and women are the key to that change. Using COMMUNITY RUNNING as a tool, the Pinkathon and it’s Ambassadors have empowered and enabled thousands of women across India to bring positive change into their lives. By understanding that by PRIORITISING a little bit of time for themselves every day they can bring about change in physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Change in understanding the value they bring to their families and society, and respecting that value. Change to the future of their families by INSPIRING BY EXAMPLE. Bringing the concept of health into every aspect of their lives. Making physical, mental and emotional health the driving force of every decision.
Ambassadors of Pinkathon have been relentless and unflagging in their efforts to spread this message and build this community from the ground up, in each and every household. In the eight cities of Pinkathon, Ambassadors are doing their bit. Now it is time to spread the word as far and wide as possible.
It is time for Pinkathon Day.
Starting this October, and at least on this one day each year, women in more and more cities across India and the world will run together under the banner of Pinkathon. Ambassadors will nominate themselves and their cities, and call for participation. The target this year is 100 cities. We want ‘Har ghar mein Pinkathon’ !!
The time is NOW, the cause is YOU, and together, we will do more!
