Over the year of 2013, Pinkathon will be hosted across Delhi, Bangalore and Pune, apart from Mumbai.
To quote Milind Soman as on the Pinkathon website:
I believe that we as a populace should do whatever it takes to raise awareness about breast cancer and keep it at bay. Running, as a fitness medium, addresses most of the top 10 ways to help prevent breast cancer. It not only promotes well-being but also raises immunity levels and energizes a healthy lifestyle to help fight diseases like cancer that increasingly threaten the modern day society.
