MUMBAI: Sharmila Tagore and Soha Ali Khan will run the marathon for Rahul Bose’s charity foundation.
Bose says, "The Mumbai Marathon is the best community event especially in the wake of the recent 26/11 terror attacks."
The actor says that this is the only occasion where differences visible in the everyday life melt away and the entire city comes together in the spirit of oneness.
"The marathon is one event, which actually does not require any personal investment from anyone but we should invest in it as it’s a not only a great platform to see the different lifestyles thriving in the city come together for the support of different causes but also an enriching experience for all," he says.
Tagore says, "Children are the future of India and as UNICEF’S Goodwill Ambassador, I have pledged to speak up for the cause of children whenever and wherever it is necessary. I am participating in this marathon to support HEAL, a project run by Rahul Bose’s NGO, which is a foundation, to raise awareness for sexually abused children. If this small effort in anyway alleviates the misery and stigma that these little children have to face, it will be worth my while."
