Dawn To Dusk Marathon 2014 - Post-event email




Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Thank you for participating in the third edition of Dawn To Dusk Marathon 2014 at IIT Madras this Sunday.

Approximately 6300 people including 2200 children and families participated in our charity run and cycle marathon in support of God's Own Children. The primary objective of this event was to raise awareness and raise funds for Cerebral Palsy affected children through Bal Sanjeevani. The entire event was possible only through the selfless efforts of many dedicated volunteers who put in their own personal time for many months and sleepless nights.

Neville Billimoria, founder of Dawn To Dusk, completed the 12 hour endurance event including 51km running and 156km cycling literally from dawn to dusk. An athlete and wonderful human being who has dedicated part of his life in support for less privileged children. Last year Neville with his team raised 50 lakhs towards rehabilitation of these children.

We hope you had an enjoyable Sunday morning and are eager to hear about your experience and feedback through this form. With your help we hope to further better this event and reach out further next year. And of course we would like to see you and your friends return again next time!

We thank you for keeping the beautiful campus of IIT Madras clean and minimizing impact on environment and wildlife by parking your vehicles outside and walking the extra distance to and from the venue. Our volunteers left the campus as we found it by removing any garbages and segregating the same to maximize recycling and minimize waste going to the dump yard.

Parents whose kids did not receive their certificate, runners who missed their medals or t-shirts can submit this form. We will ensure you receive the same as soon as possible.

Adults (both running and cycling) can download their e-certificate from this link. Please download and share with your friends.
