Call to action at 'Sevathon'

Submitted By India Community Center

The India Community Center in Milpitas proudly presents its annual "Sevathon" at Baylands Park in Sunnyvale, where thousands of walkers and runners will participate in their choice of a half-marathon, 10K, or 5K race while supporting their favorite non-profit.

An annual fun event inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's Dandi march that kicked off his famous Salt Satyagraha, "Sevathon" provides a refreshing opportunity to leverage our strengths and make a difference. While it may sound similar to other marathon/walkathon events, Sevathon hosts a great variety of non-profits and also many cultural events.

Last year, 57 non-profits registered over 2,000 men, women, and children for the event; 1,000 more people came to simply enjoy a day in the park with a variety of entertainment and food.

Pre-registration is open until Saturday, July 13: $25 for the 5K and 10K runs and $40 for the half marathon. Day of event registration is $35 for the 5K and 10K runs and $60 for the half marathon. Please arrive at least 40 minutes early to pick up your bib. For more information and registration, please visit: www.indiacc.org/sevathon.
