Indian cricket legend, also known as the ‘God of Cricket’, Sachin Tendulkar, will be joining at least 18,000 participants at the Delhi Marathon at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (JLN) on Sunday to raise funds for the families of the slain CRPF soldiers.
The organisers of the event will donate Rs. 100 for each participant, and before each of the four races – full marathon, half marathon, timed 10k run and 5k – Sachin Tendulkar will do 5-10 pushups as a part of the #KeepMoving Push-Up Challenge, and the participants will join him in the ordeal.
One of the organisers of the event said, “Our country has witnessed a terrible attack in Pulwama and we offer our condolences to the families of the martyrs. To support for these brave souls and their families, we encourage all the 18,000 runners to join Sachin Tendulkar in being a part of the #KeepMoving Push-Up Challenge.”
