OMR RUN MARATHON 2018
Every initiative of Rotary Club of Chennai Upscale is well-planned before implementation and is constantly monitored and measured for effective performance and results. The pilot project launched a year ago at the ADW School Pudupakkam has shown highly encouraging results.
RCCU President Mr. Amiya Chowdhury adds, “Our task has just begun. Only active engagement and monitoring will yield sustained results.”
Mr. Raghavan – Secretary RCCU avers, “We’ve deployed trainers to train the teachers and constantly upskill them with latest cognitive pedagogies.” The Teachers have started adapting to changing times to ensure these children get the best quality education. To sustain these on-going ventures, RCCU embarked upon a fund raising initiative that is OMR Run.
OMR RUN is a family fun event with 3, 5, and 10 KM categories. All finishers get a Medal and every participant gets T-shirt, Breakfast and goodie bag with Discount vouchers from leading stores in OMR.
