Television actors and superstars Tara Sharma, Karan Mehra, Jay Soni, Bhavya Gandhi and Saloni Daini were seen encouraging a host of children at the recently held Mumbai Juniorthon at Bandra Kurla Complex. Over 3,000 children embraced the event to support running and other physical activities instead of clinging to their addiction of gadgets.
Tara Sharma who supported the cause in association with the Smile Foundation commented, “Juniorthon is a great platform to educate, encourage and inspire kids at an early age to be physically active beings. As a mother of 2 kids, I constantly keep pushing my children to be a part of such physical activities.”
Numerous children were training with dedication for the Juniorthon months before the event. Children in the age group of 6-15 years participated at the event.
Model and actor Karan Mehra said, “It feels great to be a part of an event where you can encourage so many kids to leave their gadgets home and run to be fit.”
“The energy levels of the kids were insane! The spirit of running is what matters the most and we thoroughly enjoyed celebrating this event with the kids,” said Jay Soni, celebrated Indian television actor.
Child comedian Saloni added, “I wish I could be a part of Juniorthon. I am happy to see how parents and kids have shown their enthusiasm for this event. I look at many kids of my age and younger to me involved with gadgets day and night. This is a great way to tell them that it's important to be outdoorsy and have fun and be fit."
The event was organised by Party Sharty and presented by Radius Group.
