Hi guys! It’s been a while since I actively set some fitness goals, but lately a bunch have come to mind. While I can’t tackle them all right now, I aim to do so over the next few months. A couple of them include:
- Completing Kayla Itsines 12-week program
- Resuming playing tennis again.
And my current goal: Running the Pinkathon 10 K Race in Mumbai on December 14th, which spreads awareness about women’s fitness & more importantly: breast cancer. Did you know that breast cancer has become the second leading cause of death among women & every 19 seconds, someone in the world has been diagnosed? Rather than wait till it’s our mom, aunt, friend, or even one of us who has been affected, we need to be taking action NOW.
While various factors can contribute to breast cancer, the most significant causes are being female and ageing. Earlier detection, increased knowledge and understanding of the biology of breast cancer and better treatments all help increase survival rates after a diagnosis of breast cancer. Although there is no cure yet for breast cancer, each one of us can be part of the solution.
Truth be told I’m not really running the 10 K with any time goals in mind. I just want to finish the whole thing, preferably without any walk breaks. I’ve started running twice a week, one longish & the other shorter. I’m running the race with 3 other friends so I know it will be a blast. More importantly, I’m excited to do my part (albeit small) & help raise money for breast cancer research. Without sounding like a self-promo, I’d really appreciate if you guys would sponsor me.
Regardless of how big or small you donate, each rupee (or dollar, pound or whatever unit of currency you wish to donate) will contribute towards research into finding a cure. And even if you don’t wish to donate, you can help by merely raising awareness and reducing the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment.

Thanks guys <3!
