~Youth Icon Tiger Shroff gives his unstinted support to India’s largest citizen movement to restart livelihoods~
Youth Icon Tiger Shroff joins Sunfeast India Run As One – India’s largest citizen movement to restart Livelihoods, beginning this Independence Day.
The actor has been at the forefront of fitness and active living; inspiring millions. However, this time he isn't there to promote fitness, but to lead from the front and encourage citizens to join this first-of-its-kind virtual participatory movement, for purposeful giving and wellness from within India and across the world. #LivelihoodsMatter.
Since the nationwide lockdown in March, it is estimated that over 140 million workers have lost their livelihoods and been severely impacted. Add to them the family members—children, spouses, parents—who depend on them and the scale of the problem, truly boggles the mind.
How can we become part of the solution; can our one step forward help restart a livelihood and bring a smile to someone face?
Tiger believes that, yes, we can. Running or walking are the simplest activities for a healthy mind and body. In support of the movement, Tiger Shroff, stated, “I believe that in the current scenario, when things are difficult, we should focus on keeping our mind and our bodies healthy and try to help those who are lesser fortunate. India Run As One is a great movement through which we can make contributions to help the people who have taken a heavy blow due to the pandemic.
I have already registered to join many others, this Independence Day and I urge all Indians, here and across the globe to come together and join this noble initiative.”
To join Sunfeast India Run As One participants can register for as little as Rs. 99 upwards, pledge a distance they would like to run, jog or walk (from the security and comfort of their surroundings) and basis their capacity contribute further. With no geographic or physical barriers, people across the world can participate in this movement. Every registration will support livelihood opportunities of a person.
