The grand Mayor’s Marathon event was conducted on 21st December, 2014 by Vasai-Virar City Municipal Corporation (VVCMC) having many unique and attractive activities including the event “Walk for Peace” too. The total number of participants for walk were 65 , whereas the total number of participants for the whole event were 5000. The ‘Walk’ gave a message to the audience – peace begins with all of us but with a step taken towards it individually, and thus bringing peace for all in the world. Bharat Ratna Mr. Sachin Tendulkar and Manchester United and Arsenal Football Legend Mikael Silvestre were the chief guest. Milind Soman participated in the full marathon. It was a beautiful & quite new experience while participating into marathon as a ‘peace walk’. Arrangements from VVCMC were very impressive. Volunteers of our team were really motivated. The audience were very keenly looking at the ‘messages of peace’. The programme was live telecast by the Signet Digital Cable Service. It would make very positive impact on around 1.5lakh viewers.
