Impiger's best Foot Forward - Running for Cancer Awareness

Dileepan Selvaraj

Around 60 Impiger Employees participated in 3rd edition of Coimbatore Marathon that aims to bring people of the community together to raise awareness and funds for the cancer research.

Over 10, 000 people of all walks of life, from children to the elderly, participated in the event organized by the Coimbatore Cancer Foundation.

Notably, Impiger's Prakash completed the half-marathon distance of 21.1 km in 1 hour and 50 minutes and Pramod did the same distance in and 2 hours and 15 minutes. Impiger will be sponsoring the two runners in all of their future marathon participations. A plurality of us participated in the 10 km version of the marathon.

It was a remarkable sight, seeing differently abled people competing in the 5km variant of the race and it was nothing short of 'inspirational' says Impiger's Iswarya.

The cheers, the smiles and the selfies at the finishing line reminded us a little thing our managing partner, Suprej, remarked on before the race, 'there is nothing like the high one feels after crossing the finish line of a marathon'.

As a whole, we had great fun participating in the event and honored that we were able to give back to the community. The management likes to thank everyone for participating and we look forward to running in the next edition as well.
