Doon's Akanksha Singh, who was the third runners up at Miss Asia 2017, completed her 12-hour non-stop treadmill walk/run on the weekend. She covered a total distance of 60 kilometres during her 12-hour challenge. She attempted this feat to support mental health awareness.
Akanksha stepped on the treadmill at 9 in the morning, walked and ran continuously for 12 hours before concluding the challenge at 9 in the evening. Behind attempting this feat, Akanksha gave credit to her sister and trainer Apeksha Pundir, who arduously trained her for this initiative. She also thanked her mother Santosh Pundir, father Bhanwar Singh Pundir, and brothers Anubhav and Prabhat Pundir for being a their support.
Sharing her experience about the 12-hour treadmill walk/run, Akanksha said, “It was an unreal 12-hour-long experience as it exceeded all my expectations. I was so excited and nervous at the same time and had so many emotions while on the treadmill. Along with my parents, so many people came forward to watch and support me via social media live platforms, which motivated me to push myself hard to complete this challenge.”
