The message of Pinkathon is clear. Women, we need you. Your families need you, and not just your children, but your society, your country needs you. In the words of Bishop Tutu and countless wise men before and since, “If we are going to see real development in the world then our best investment is WOMEN!”
The need of this hour and this time, is for women to come together as a community to drive positivity in progress and good health for all, starting with THEMSELVES! In a country like ours, with a culture that has no tradition of sports for all, or exercise or of healthy lifestyle practises, change is needed and women are the key to that change.
Pinkathon started out as a running event but is now a grassroot movement, with people across the country taking up the cause and spreading the message.
Using COMMUNITY RUNNING as a tool, the Pinkathon and it's Ambassadors have empowered and enabled thousands of women across India to bring positive change into their lives. By understanding that by PRIORITISING a little bit of time for themselves every day they can bring about change in physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Change in understanding the value they bring to their families and society, and respecting that value. Bringing change to the future of their families by INSPIRING BY EXAMPLE. Bringing the concept of health into every aspect of their lives. Making physical, mental and emotional health the driving force of every decision.
In the last 6 years, Ambassadors of Pinkathon have been relentless and unflagging in their efforts to spread this message and build this community from the ground up, in each and every household. Each Ambassador is tasked with starting a running group especially for women, around their place of residence, and dedicating at least one hour per week to a meet up and run session.
In the eight cities of Pinkathon, Ambassadors are doing their bit. It is time to spread the word as far and wide as possible.
IT IS TIME FOR PINKATHON DAY!

Swavalamban was established keeping in view the sorrowful situation of women’s menstrual health, with India having over 72,000 annual deaths due to cervical cancers. It is an initiative to create awareness about women’s health and hygiene, sustainable menstruation practices and lifestyle disease awareness along with self-examination workshops.
The project “Swavalamban” committed towards women’ s hygiene and health will identify, train, educate and empower women from weaker sections who would act as catalysts in bringing behavioural change across all sections of the society that impacts their living conditions & improves their health & wellness.
