Swachhability Run 2016

JK Cement SwachhAbility Run 2016

The human spirit is the strongest force there is, and this spirit endows us with the ability to create value out of all challenges. Ability is a state of mind, and ability backed by the determination to contribute towards a noble cause, helps us create value. The JK Cement SwachhAbility Run is a unique run carrying a strong message about two important causes – inclusion of Divyangs as equal and Swachh Bharat.

The JK Cement SwachhAbility Run drew its inspiration from the spirit of selfless service, epitomized by The Indian Army. Celebrating the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3rd December), it was a unique run carrying a strong message about two important causes – inclusion of Divyangs as equal and Swachh Bharat.

The run covered 7 cities in 7 days, starting from Chandigarh on November 27 to Noida on December 3, inspiring people across Chandigarh, Ambala, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Sonipat, Panipat and Noida.

The objective was to showcase the SwachhAbility Run as a world-class and one of its type event and emphasize on the fact that the run represents the spirit of India.
