Gachibowli: Hundreds headed to IIIT Hyderabad on Sunday morning to take part in the Startup Leadership Program (SLP) 5k Run. Startup leadership Run India is an annual startup marathon held in Hyderabad and five other cities of India. Budding entrepreneurs, founders, innovators and students took part in large number in the run.

The Deaflympics Players of India organised the run. Uma Devi Chigurupati, marathoner, double Guinness World Record holder & Executive Director, Granules India, flagged off the run. The objective of the ‘Run’ is to create awareness and raise funds towards empowering parents/families with children having intellectual and developmental disabilities, she said.

She further added, “Running is a wholesome physical exercise for body. Running five days a week can make tremendous difference to one’s physical and mental health and I am a witness to the benefits it can bestow on us. However, she cautioned the beginners to begin with lesser distance and improve on it gradually over time.”
