The 5 km walkathon, starting from Radisson Blu Hotel Pune Kharadi and looping back from the World Trade Center, brought together a diverse group of participants, including hotel team members, their families, friends, corporate colleagues, local social groups, sports enthusiasts, college students, and senior citizens. The event commenced at 6 am, with participants arriving as early as 5:15 am at the hotel's alfresco area for registration, showcasing high enthusiasm. Specially designed T-shirts and BIBs were distributed to all participants. The morning kicked off with an energetic Zumba session, followed by the official flag-off by Chief Guest- Mr. Sanjay Borde at 6:30 am. The walkathon saw around 300 participants setting off with great excitement. To ensure everyone stayed hydrated, five refreshment counters were placed along the route.
