Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2019
The first "Mobile Creche" was set up in 1969, at a construction site in Delhi: a safe, nurturing shelter for the children of construction workers, with a full day programme of nutrition, health and education on the site near the hutments, where the little ones could play, learn, eat, sleep - and be cared for. Today,
MC is working to ensure quality childcare services for children on the margins, and influence laws, programmes and policies for them, across India.
This is a milestone year for MC. 50 years ago, we made a commitment to the youngest children of India, to do our very best, to give them a better start in life. We have made tangible progress. But amid challenges, old and new, we pause here, to celebrate the journey, reach out to all those who travelled
with us and revitalize our efforts to move forward.
On the occasion of our 50 th anniversary, we are participating in the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2019, (ADHM), to raise visibility and funds for MC’s work. We aim to inspire 50 corporate partners to participate; 500 runners to champion the cause; helping MC reach out to 50,000 young children in India.
This year ADHM will take place on 20 th October, starting at 5 am from Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Hundreds of marathon lovers will be present throughout the route to cheer you. Friends, family, donors, supporters of MC will enjoy the high energy music, dance and fun events planned along the sidelines of the marathon.
Every year in India, 1.2 million children die before reaching the age of 5, due to malnourishment, and preventable diseases caused by the lack of adequate care and protection. Most of those who do survive to get a poor start in life. You can help change the beginning of the story of a life, by addressing the child’s foundational need for healthcare, adequate nutrition, early learning, and quality care in a nurturing environment.
We request you to join us as an individual runner, corporate partner or care champion.
