On Sunday, students of the Anil Surendra Modi School of Commerce (NMIMS University) organised a five-km walkathon. The event was part of the institute’s social outreach programme, which focused on child sexual abuse.
The purpose, said one of the students, was to give everyone a reason to fight for others and at the same time, do something for themselves by running or walking for five km.
“Around 2,000 people participated. The money generated through registration will be given to Arpan, an NGO,” said one of the organisers.
Jai Hind College at Churchgate has set up a ‘Wellness Centre’ that reaches out to any and every student or staff members on campus. It focuses on their mental and physical wellness.
