Come October, Coimbatore city is about to brim with excitement and happiness. An exclusive marathon just for the kids, proudly titled as the Kidathon 2017, is all ready to take off and ignite the passion for sports and physical activity in teens and pre teens, in order to lead a healthier, happier and confident lifestyle tomorrow. This noble initiative from Round Table 31 is their latest initiative to instil a sense of sportsmanship among children and adolescents. In an age where children are getting addicted to gadgets and becoming couch potatoes, Kidathon intends to reinstate the values of maintaining good health and inculcate the habit of exercising every day in them.
It’s a proven fact that engaging in sports is not only crucial to children’s physical health but also for their mental well being which improves social skills, self-esteem and confidence. This well intentioned event targets to create awareness about the benefits of participating in sports and athletic events. Parents being the first role model of children will play an important role throughout the event. They would act as jubilant spectators and cheerleaders and motivate their kids till the event ends. Kidathon 2017 will be organised and promoted by Coimbatore’s leading Events & Brand Consultancy, Rush Republic.
