The Porur Racers Chapter started with a couple of running enthusiast in 2012 has grown steadily over the 4 years with over 350+ members in the group. We are now preparing to celebrate its 5th anniversary with an Anniversary Run Event, in which runners from all parts of Chennai belonging to various other chapters would be participating. Runners with different age group including veteran runners of Chennai would be participating in the event.
We would like to make this anniversary run, not only a memorable event for the participants but also a purposeful one. We would be joining hands with an NGO, Vaanavil, with a mission to create a greener and cleaner environment. Through this event, we would like to create awareness for a safer world by planting more trees and work towards zero waste. We are working towards this goal of creating awareness among the members of society and targeting ourselves to plant 1000 trees by this year end. As part of this campaign, we are planning to promote the planting of trees by the participants and promote adoption of trees by them.
