Sevathon 2010

Submitted By Neha Kothari

Celebrating the idea of service and giving back to the community, hundreds of walkers, runners, adults and kids will gather at beautiful Baylands Park in Sunnyvale to participate in Sevathon 2010. Featuring a half-marathon, 10K, and 5K races open to runners and walkers, Sevathon is the South Bay's premier fitness event that focuses on exercising both the body and the soul. Derived from the word "seva" or "service", Sevathon is an initiative to bring the community together for a common cause and support those in need of service. The event is the combined effort of over 30+Bay Area-based non-profits and their thousands of members.

The Sevathon Torch will travel across Bay Area cities. Passing the torch ceremony on Sunday, June 27 will bring the event to the people, giving them a preview of Sevathon and a chance to hear from the non-profits about how the individual efforts of the walkers and runners are making a difference in the lives of thousands of people. Take a moment to witness a time in history for the first of the five torch passing ceremonies. This critical moment launches the torch's journey through all the partner organizations until the big day. Complimentary tea and snacks will be provided.

Benefiting a wide variety of local nonprofit and charity organizations, Sevathon 2010 features a family health and wellness fair, Bollywood dance performances, interactive kids' activities, and food from across the regions of India. Pre-registration for the Half-Marathon is $40, and race-day registration is $65. The 5K and 10K are $25 pre-registration, and $35 on race day. All proceeds go to Bay Area charities organizations.
