Bolly stars support green run

Hanjer Biotech Energies, a global waste-recycling and resource-recovery company, in association with Mithibai College's Kshitij '12 Realm of Raaga, and support from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will host 'Hanjer Green Run' on Sunday.

It will be starting at 8 am from Jamnabai Narsee Grounds up to Sea Princess Hotel and back.

Film celebrities like Vivek Oberoi, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Amrita Rao and Ahmed Khan will extend their support to the Hanjer Green Run.

Mumbai Mayor Sunil Prabhu will be the Guest of Honour.

Hanjer T-shirts will also be distributed on the occasion.

With the theme, 'Recycle Waste for a Healthy City', the Hanjer Green Run is a 5 km mini marathon initiative to create awareness of proper disposal and recycling of waste.

The first prize for the Hanjer Green Run winner is Rs. 10,000 cash and the runner-up prizes are cash amounts between Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 7,000.

The categories are: 14-16 years; 16-25 years; 25-45 years; and 45 years and above.

Irfan Furniturewala, Promoter, Hanjer Biotech Energies, said, "Hanjer Green Run is a unique 5 km mini marathon to create awareness in Mumbai about the urgent need for proper disposal and recycling of municipal waste in the city to reduce the increasing risk of various life threatening diseases such as malaria, dengue, etc.

"The recent death of revered film maker, Yash Chopra, who passed away after suffering from dengue is a case in point. These diseases are caused due to non efficient measures to dispose garbage and waste products."

"The Hanjer Green Run is a wake up initiative to spread message through this marathon to join Hanjer in saving the environment and improving public health by handling waste responsibility," he said.
