It was truly a memorable celebration for Guru Nanak Institute of Management Studies as the Institute put its best foot forward with "GNIMS Dream Run 2013" held on 17th February 2013 supporting the cause of women protection.
GNIMS Institute was the stage last Sunday with more than 600 runners from all walks of life along with faculty members, staff members and representatives of NGO "Sakhya" who made it to the venue and ran on the streets of Matunga to fulfill different commitments. Action kicked off from GNIMS Institute at 7.30 am when the event ambassador Mir Ranjan Negi and GNIMS Director General, Dr Ajit Singh flagged off the race and the energy levels and spirits remained on a high till the last participant trooped in sometime.
For some runners, it was an aggressive competition, it was a race, and they were there to win and for others, it was just about participation and enjoying the run for as long as they could. Every runner was lost in his or her own space, but there was still some invisible connection between every person on the road.
The "GNIMS Dream Run 2013" was a small initiative to mark an advance for India's beleaguered women.
Every year Dept. of Palliative Medicine of Tata Memorial Centre celebrates the second Saturday of October as World Hospice and Palliative Care Day.
