The 5km and 10km run continues to encourage and introduce running as a daily sport among professionals. All the registration proceeds will go to ADAPT (Able Disabled People All Together) the event charity partners and a non-government organisation.

Mr. Ramesh C. Bawa, Managing Director & CEO, IL&FS Financial Services, said, Running has not only been considered as an effective physical activity to chase good health and fitness leading to a healthy body, soul and mind, but this also brings perseverance in one's life to achieve the desired goals and ambitions. 'I Run For Fun' is an initiative undertaken by us five years ago with a motive to boost the morale of our employees and other participants to replicate the aspect of 'Run-to-Chase' in their personal and professional life. Besides this, we also feel privileged to provide financial support to one of the foremost 'Non-Profit' organisations in the country called 'ADAPT' with the funds collected from this event. I welcome all the participants to join hands towards a healthier, soulful, social and noble approach.
