Roshni Rai is an Advocate by profession and based in Mumbai. She has left her corporate career in order to work for the betterment of runners from Darjeeling from where she hails.
The project, titled as ‘Run with Roshni’ has supported more than 30 runners from Darjeeling.
Most of the runners from ‘Run with Roshni’ team come from a humble background and are not specially trained athletes, but they still have the grit and determination to perform exceptionally and run half marathons between 1hr 10 mins to 1hr 30 mins. The biggest problems these runners face is proper running kits and to solve this problem Roshni Rai approached Puma to help support the runners with proper running kits. Puma in turn, did not hesitate to support the current batch of 12 runners with shoes and running shorts and shirts etc.
At the charity event ‘Ramilo with Gorkhas’ organized by ‘Run with Roshni Foundation’, as an ambassador of Puma, Mr. P. Venkatraman presented the running kits to Roshni. Also present was Mr Adille Sumariwalla, President of Athletics Federation of India , the Chief Guest for the evening.
