The Contours Women’s Day Run (CWDR) was held on 1st March, 2020 at Embassy Manyata Business Park. CWDR is all about celebrating women, their achievements and ambitions while raising funds for the specially-abled children of Shristi Special Academy. It is an event for all women and the men in their lives. But with every year that passes by we see the crowd getting younger with more participants below the age of 18, younglings inspired by their parents, making CWDR either their first run or their first experience at being at a run.
This year we had over 1500 participants registered to run. We were delighted to have children from 4 different schools for the underprivileged also take part. Plus, 55 runners from the Air Force, who breezed past the finish line.
To shake things up we had a fun new warm up called Stretch and Dance. There was Zumba, free photography and a lot of entertainment on stage as well.
The highlight this year were the children under 6 who ran with a parent in the fun 2K event. As you can imagine it was absolutely endearing and heart-warming to watch them try their best to cross the finish line.
This fun, vibrant event celebrates International women’s Day, along with the children in whose aid the event itself was held. We were glad that at the end of the day, the event lived up to its motto- Run | Celebrate| Support
