Commenting on the success of the Pinkathon Pune Milind Soman, Founder Pinkathon said, Pinkathon, Empowering Indian Women is more than a Marathon. It is the seed of change. It is the beginning of a movement carried forward by a growing community of empowered women across India, who share a belief that a healthy family, a healthy nation and a healthy world begins with empowered women. The first step in empowerment is taking control of your own health, respecting yourself and understanding and celebrating the value you bring to your family and society. Empowerment is not a gift of society; it is a gift you give yourself. We are delighted to have such diverse crowd right from young school students, housewives, corporate, cancer survivors, underprivileged and visually impaired girls participating in Pinkathon at Pune.
