Monday, 17 August 2015 | PNS | Jamshedpur | in Ranchi
The seventh annual Jamshedpur Run, organised by XLRI was flagged off by internationally acclaimed boxer, Aruna Mishra, on a bright Sunday morning, which saw active participation of 500 people. The mini marathon was a 5 km stretch that started from XLRI’s football ground and covered some of the most picturesque roads of Jamshedpur.
Jamshedpur Run, organized as one of the foremost events of Valhalla, the annual sports and cultural festival of XLRI, aims to bring together people from all walks of life in celebration of the hero within us all. The event organized by CII-Young Indians (CII-Yi) student chapter at XLRI received an overwhelming response. Participants included school and college students, faculty members, industry experts, dignitaries and citizens of the city who hit the ground at 6:00 a.m. The medical arrangements for the event were taken care of by the volunteers of XLRI with medical stations installed along the route.
The winners were felicitated at the prize distribution ceremony by Fr. James Santhanam, Associate Dean (Student Affairs), XLRI and Ms. Aruna Mishra. Ms. Mishra has been an inspirational figure who symbolizes the realization of the innate potential that exists within each one of us. The participants took home the joy of being a part of a challenging experience, along with goodies and certificates.
The mini-marathon event ended on a high note with participants expressing a strong desire to participate in the event next year. XLRI is the country’s premier management institute and has been consistently ranked among the top B-schools, alongside the IIMs. The college is one of the most preferred destinations for those wishing to learn the ropes of management.
XLRI in collaboration with Yi (Young Indians) established the first Yi Net at XLRI Jamshedpur through a Memorandum of Understanding in April 2008. The Yi Net at XLRI is an initiative to empower the students to work towards the development of education, employability, environment, youth affairs and health sectors.
