People from Nashik city joined hands for the 18. consecutive time to raise funds for helping the needy and underprivileged through the Annual Charity event Nashik Run. More than EUR 87,000 was raised through entrance fees, sponsorships and donations. Employees of TDK India contributed with nearly EUR 5,000. TDK has been the main sponsor and managing the event along with Bosch.
The 2020 edition of the Nashik Run was yet another grand success and around 15,000 people including families, children and disabled joined for the social cause. Apart from the usual 5 km fun run, a 10 km marathon run was also introduced this time, which attracted professional athletes too from Nashik and other cities. Four athletes from Nashik, who won the Ironman 2019 competition in Australia, also participated in the run.
The Nashik Run was founded in 2003 by EPCOS and Bosch. Along with promoting greater health awareness, the run also aims to help socially disadvantaged people in and around the city. The Nashik Run Charitable Trust uses the collected amount to fund various social projects focussing on improving the quality of education, providing basic infrastructure for schools and providing medical support.
