SCMM 2015
Dear All,

Thank you for your overwhelming support and response for our participation at the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2015. While I am sure that many of you would have seen / read about our participation at the event through various media avenues, pleased to share with you a few highlights:
Mid Day Mid Day Mid Day Mid Day
We were delighted to have Dia Mirza and Simone Arora lead our 89 member strong contingent.
Vishal Mane -  our star Kabaddi player from U Mumba (Pro Kabaddi League) also supported us at the event
Ultra marathoner Sayuri Dalvi ran the full marathon for us and stood 3rd in the Women’s race!
Dr. Salunkhe - Group Director Welingkar Institute of Management and 20 of his students supported us by
participating in the student challenge event!
70 year old Prafulla Khule, who hails from our areas of operations – Raigad, ran the Full Marathon in under 4
hours – a record time!
20 of our Community Health Workers (Swa Raksha Mitras) came down from Raigad specially to experience
the magic of SCMM and to promote awareness around Health and Wellness!
5 of our Raigad boys Sameer Goriwale, Surendra Pashte, Lavesh Ghole, Roshan Andhere and Anil Ubhare ran for
