Bangalore (Karnataka), [India], July 04, 2024 – Last weekend, the heart of Bangalore was throbbing with a pulse of philanthropy and wellness as it was gearing up for FitFest5K, a charity run that goes beyond the finish line! Conducted on June 23, 2024, at the scenic Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium, HSR Layout, the event invited participants from all walks of life, aged 12 and above, to lace up their running shoes for a cause that champions community health and upliftment. 

The participants, which included runners from various parts of the city, caught the sunrise at 6:30 AM and pushed their limits for charity as part of the 5K timed run. Those seeking a thrill, while supporting the cause, ran for the 2.5K fun run.

Purpose and Passion Collided at FitFest5K: 

With every step, participants raised critical awareness and funds for health programs curated explicitly for the underprivileged urban population. The event brought together numerous corporates, individuals and organisations to promote a healthier society. 

Wonderla Parks and Resorts and Casa Grand Flamingo came forward to support Avant Welfare Foundation with this noble cause, helping making this vision a reality.

  • Elevate the ongoing community welfare efforts, encouraging wider public engagement.
