Airtel Delhi Half Marathon raises record Rs 7.26 crore

New Delhi, Feb 20 (UNI) The Airtel Delhi Half Marathon (ADHM) managed to generate an unprecedented sum of Rs 7.26 crore in its eighth edition, which took place in November last year. The organisers said this is not just the highest amount ever raised but also twice more than last year. The event brought together 70 firms, 110 corporate teams and 7,008 individuals supporting over a hundred NGOs. Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, the chief patron of ADHM, said, "Coming from the NGO sector myself, I know how difficult it is to raise funds. It's great to see the event is providing a good and transparent platform for NGOs to raise funds." Murray Culshaw, chairman and founder, India Cares Foundation, said, "This platform is certainly increasing the confidence of individuals and companies to support a wide range of causes." Joint MD of Procam International, Vivek B Singh said, "The event has shown its ability to bring together the masses in support of various causes." Individuals, who raised the highest funds were Dwaraka Pandurangi, who collected Rs 7,067,608 for NGO Vidya Sagar and Madhavi Gupta, who got Rs 5,646,837 for NGO Muskaan.
