The Forum Mall, Koramangala, in association with NIMHANS, Bangalore organized, India’s first & biggest half marathon for creating awareness about, Alzheimer’s & mental illnesses titled “ The Purple Run” on the 24th of Sept 2017. More than 1500 people partook & backed this noble cause, participants from all walks of life & age groups graced the occasion & were more than willing to run for the cause with full zeal & vigor. All of us unanimously joined hands to create awareness about Alzheimer’s & work towards a world free of Alzheimer’s & mental illnesses. Dignitaries from NIMHANS addressed the gathering & promoted healthy living in order to create a better tomorrow.

The Purple Run was categorized across four groups, the 21km, 10km, 5km & 3km run. With the flagging off of the 21km run at 5:10 AM, the run commenced being followed by 10km, 5km and 3km respectively.
