A stream of almost 1,000 runners set fire to the dew-dipped parks of Cubbon Park on Sunday morning, November 6. Fresh-faced children, bright oldies, sari-clad women and jean-clad teenagers … they were all part of a fun run from Century Club.
Ashwini Nachappa, national sportswoman, was the first bright spark that flagged off the fiery, feisty morning at 7 a.m. The runners circled the park and returned to the starting point by afternoon. “That was a fantastic event. A super sprint,” cried a participant.
Indeed, it was a Biggie in every way, mobilising special partnership with Business Network International, and support from organisations such as Microlabs and Agadi Hospital.
The special event was flagged off to support Karunashraya, a Cancer hospice.
The growth of Soroptimists has been propelled collectively by past presidents and past members of the executive committee. I look forward to live up to their expectations and to work for all causes taken up by us towards fulfilling the mission of the Soroptimists.
In this endeavor, I am happy to be joined by my colleagues Juma Guha (Secretary), Dr Nalini Subbaiah (Treasurer), and all the office bearers. I am confident that with the support of all our dedicated members, we will be steadfast in completing all our projects on hand and will also be enthusiastic in taking up more projects to achieve our goals.
I stand before you all, with an appeal to shed our inhibitions, egos and work for the common cause, which we shall all make, in an endeavor to unanimously agree upon. We just celebrated 10 years as an organisation and have a long list of achievements. I look forward to your cooperation towards enriching our experience by visiting various other clubs and expanding our horizons.
I am proud to be given this wonderful opportunity and seek the blessings of God of all people to take this organization to further heights.
