If you visit Parimal Garden, AUDA Garden or any popular garden in the morning, you will find Amdavadis sweating it out in the morning sun whilst burning the calories from the meal last night. It’s these morning walkers that have made walking a popular culture in the Ahmedabad. And since 2003, Ahmedabad comes together once a year to walk for charity.
The Annual Motif Charity Walk began in 2003 to create a strong sense of social awareness through a range of philanthropic activities organized by its employees. The objective of this walk is to create health awareness and raise funds through public participation. Over the years, individuals and corporates have supported this event and have helped Motif raise funds in excess of Rs. 2.5 crore for 27 NGOs.
The Annual Motif Charity Walk is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 7.00 AM. It is a 5 km walk / 10 km run from L. D. College of Engineering, Ahmedabad. Jivdaya Charitable Trust, Kasturba Gandhi National Memorial Trust, Prabhat Education Foundation and Special Olympics Gujarat Charitable Trust are the beneficiary NGOs this year.
If you wish to register for the Charity Walk, you can contribute a minimum of Rs. 150/- for registration and choose the charity you want to support. Motif will match the same amount that you have contributed. For registration visit Motif India Infotech Pvt. Ltd from 10.00 AM to 10.00 PM from Monday to Saturday or visit AlphaOne Mall at Vastrapur Lake between 11.00 AM to 09.00 PM from Monday to Sunday.
