JK Cement SwachhAbility Run: A run for twin causes- Inclusion of physically challenged as equals and Swachh Bharat.

Kargil War veteran, Major D P Singh, is a personification of never-say-die attitude. Having lost a leg in Kargil war, he did not let it lose his confidence and mental strength. Displaying an exemplary courage he went to run 18 marathons and became India’s first blade runner to achieve such a feat that made him a Limca Book of Records holder.

To inspire and empower the physically challenged to turn their disability into an asset, he formed a group called  ‘The Challenging Ones (TCO)‘ in 2011. The group has won many laurels in Paralympics sports at national and international level.

JK Cement SwachhAbility Run is an attempt to change social perception towards disabled and showcase their abilities to the society. It is a unique run where disabled along with all the participants will clean a designated area after the event as a part of the Swachh Drive.

Support them and bring a difference in the society.
