Pinkathon was founded by Milind Soman organized by United Sisters foundation. The purpose of this community is to create awareness amongst the women for a healthier  lifestyle for themselves and their families. This is the first group to connect & highlight the health issues related to women .

Har Ghar Mein Pinkathon has developed as a community to convey a strong message to women of any age group that why a women should live a healthier life? It’s because if a women is happy the entire family stays happy. Pinkathon conducts regular runs across India and overseas with free training, workshops, counselling sessions, free medical check ups across the year. We have connected with more than 12k women on FB page and more than 100 whatsapp group as per pin-code. 

With this agenda, the Powai & Kanjurmarg training group was formed in early 2017 with 4 women. Within a year the numbers crossed 200 women only from Powai . On 17th Feb 2018, we celebrated the 50th Pinakthon Powai Kanjurmarg Training @ Heritage Garden. We gratified the regular runners for regularly attending training. Further, we inspired the beginners to run or walk minimum of 2kms daily and post it on social media. Every Saturday we conduct free runs & training sessions with Yoga, Zumba, physio and diet talks at Heritage Garden .

Apart from the regular runs, we try to break the monotony by arranging theme runs to make it more exciting like Christmas Santa run, New Year run, Valentine run, Mahashivratri run from Heritage to Jagdeeshwar Temple Powai, Holi run, Save Aarey run, etc. We also believe in complete endurance training hence we arrange long runs and hill runs. 

Now we are all eagerly waiting for the  Siddhivnayak run where the entire  Pinkathon will do a long run from their respective areas to Siddhivinayak Temple. We try to pull in beginners who have never made an attempt to run or walk, we motivate them to do so & the results are encouraging.

All the aspiring ladies reach us on Facebook – Pinkathon forever for updates & leave a msg to join your area Whatsapp group for your 1st step towards fitness
