"Earlier Pinkathon Runs had only women running with Milind. Noida Pinkathon is special. We had invited brother to run with sisters to make this rakhi, a special day. This rakhi is not only brother committing to protect sisters but both brother and sister committing to a healthier lifestyle." said NoidaMoms founder Shruti Mittal.
Milind said "Today we all tie rakhi to each other to commit to a healthier lifestyle and pledge lifelong support, its no longer only sister tying rakhi brother." Also he repeated his slogan 'Each One Kheench One!', beckoning all to pull each others into a healthier life style.
Anamika a NoidaMoms associate, said "I was absolutely stunned to see Milind running bare feet all the way."
"I wish awareness campaign like these started much earlier in time. If cancer is detected in its first stage, I am sure cancer will easily loose its status as killer disease. Women are much stronger and can easily beat cancer any day, if women cared little more for themselves besides taking care of everything in this world." says Mrs. Asha Eran aged 80 years, a cancer survivor.
