The event started early in the morning at 6:30am with flag off ceremony. The presence of Star Athlete and Arjuna award winner –Ms. Lalita Babar and the Indian rower who represented India in Rio-2016 – Mr. Dattu Bhoknal brought charm to the marathon.
This mega event was attended by more than 25000 sportsmen, celebrities, social activists and corporates from across India. We salute all the enthusiast participants in the event for enlightening the morning with their full spirit.
The event was a grand success since the entire Meyer family contributed to promote “Live Life Well” with wellman & wellwoman.
The mission was promoted through a rally encompassing all the team members wearing white corporate t-shirts and was led by Mr. Dattu Bhoknal with slogans “I support wellman” and “ I support wellwoman”. A big balloon featuring wellman and wellwoman, flew high in the air, over the municipal corporation building and was the main attraction for the entire Marathon.
As a corporate social responsibility, on behalf of our organization, a unique “Flashmob” was organized to spread the message of “Live Life Well” to the society.
One of the consumer of Wellman- Mr. Vitthal Kamble, an athlete, has been taking wellman tablets since last 6 months. Mr. Vitthal was happy with the brand since it helped him to increase his stamina and hence to express his love for the brand- he enthusiastically painted “wellman” on his body and completed the 21km race successfully.
The apple of the eye was the “Selfie Zone” wherein sportsmen and participants enjoyed taking selfies with the Rio stars.
Overall the event was well co-ordinated and managed by Meyer family. This was the 1st opportunity for Meyer Vitabiotics to spread the message of healthy living through a Marathon. We thank each and every member associated with this mega event. Special thanks to Mr. Sanjay More, Mayor, Thane Municipal Corporation and his team for his overwhelming support and giving us this opportunity to be a part of this event. We also thank Mrs. Uma Kalekar, our Director for encouraging us to be a part of this initiative.
