Calling Chennai runners: Here’s a race to bring a smile on a child’s face!

The 9th edition of the Eureka Run organised by Aid India is all set to take place on February 24th and the theme for this year is 'Toy Joy'. Get your running shoes in order!

The 9th Annual Eureka Run sponsored by CanFin Homes is scheduled for 5:45 AM on February 24th, at Elliot’s Beach, Chennai. The run is organized by Aid India, a non-profit working on improvements in learning quality of children in villages.

Aid India uses the annual Eureka Run as a platform to create awareness about issues that plague the field of education and its impact on the lives of children in Tamil Nadu. In the 1083 remote villages that it works in, Aid India aims to boost children’s confidence by building skills in Spoken English, Mental Maths and Science.  Its unique Eureka Walk ‘n’ Talk English programme has helped thousands of children gain the confidence to engage in simple conversations in English.

The theme for this year’s Eureka Run is “Toy Joy”. Through this, Aid India aims to kick-start a large-scale campaign to providing toys to thousands of tribal and marginalized children from extremely disadvantaged backgrounds. Toys are the most important and joyful part of childhood, playing a significant role in a child’s overall development. It is a stark reality that thousands of children in villages and slums grow up without any toys or playthings.

The entire funds raised through the registration fee for Eureka Run, will be used to gift children the simple joy of playing with toys. All those interested can contribute by participating in the Eureka Run, and donating new or gently used toys towards this cause.
