There are lakhs of prisoners serving their terms in various prisons across India. It is a disheartening fact that their families also have to live with this stigma without any fault of theirs. The experience is synonymous to a second prison sentence. Their children suffer the most – agony of being separated from the parent, tough financial circumstances, isolation due to the stigma associated with those who are in prison and additionally post completion of their prison term, they are not accepted back in the mainstream community.
As a response to this apathy, Prison Ministry India (PMI) has started (regd. in 1986) as a charitable society which has been working voluntarily for the Renewal, Reformation and Rehabilitation of prisoners and their families.
Prison Ministry India (PMI) in association with blueBrigade Running Club through the PMI PUNE HALF MARATHON is providing an opportunity for you to help and contribute to this noble cause.
YOU can provide them that Second Chance by participating with friends, families and neighbours because when YOU RUN ……THEY WIN.
Running itself has its numerous physical, psychological and health benefits. What better start to the New Year than to give your family the best gift …… A Healthy You.
The proceeds of PMI PUNE HALF MARATHON through your support and participation are earmarked for the construction of a Rehabilitation Centre in Karjat for released prisoners and their families.
