"I RUN, is neither a race nor a charity run. We just wanted to give the experience of joy of earning through physical activity and enjoy it. If the enjoyment comes through sharing with others they can do that," said, Shancal Gir, Foundation's Chief Coordinator. Of course there is a mission and it's to promote a healthy world and a healthier soul, she said.
