“Contours, India’s largest chain of Women’s gyms celebrates women and fitness through our Contours Women’s Day Run. In an age of desk jobs and improper nutrition, health and fitness should be prioritised. Our Run sends out the message that it is great to have fun, at the same time it is important to be fit. The run is in its 9th year, and it’s the 4th year with Embassy. The funds are being raised for a multispecialty Therapy hall for the children of Shristi Special Academy who are differently abled. They are children with Autism, mental retardation and cerebral palsy,” explained Ms. Chandra Gopalan, Director – Contours India and a veteran marathoner.
