Join us on May 19th not only for the joy of the run but also in contributing to a future where every girl has access to education and the opportunity to fulfill her dreams.

Why the Saree Run?

The Saree Run embodies the limitless spirit of women. Our grandmothers once walked miles in sarees, driven by dreams of becoming athletes and attaining a quality education. Today, having come a long way in our transformation, we ask: why not make the Saree mainstream, breaking free from limitations?

Purpose of the Run:

The primary objective of the Saree Run is to raise funds to support girls’ education and other crucial women’s initiatives. Here’s how we aim to achieve this: while the run itself is free for all participants, we encourage each participant to leverage their networks, spread the word, and actively seek donations. In the past two years, with 150 to 200 participants, we successfully raised a total of $25,000. This year, our goal is even more ambitious – aiming to raise an additional $15,000.
