New Delhi | Singer-politician Babul Supriyo and Olympic medallist boxer Vijender Gupta today led a group of 3000 boys and girls in a Run for Children organised in the national capital on the occasion of Children’s day.

The duo detailed the benefits of running and exercise for children as they flagged off the run organised by NGO Prayas. Childhood is the time to build stamina as kids have huge energy. School children should participate in such races to ensure that they are not just academically bright but physically fit too, Gupta said while addressing the children.

The ‘Run for Children’ started at 7 AM from Central Secretariat Ground in Chanakyapuri area here. Prayas Juvenile Aid Centre Society is a national level humanitarian, child focused development organisation operating 236 centers including 22 homes, shelters for children across the country.

Every year on November 14, the NGO joins hands to celebrate the event with other children NGOs of Delhi, government and private schools, corporate and other organizations who have the heart to share with the less privileged among the children. Supriyo also enthralled the audience with rendition of few songs sung by him for Bollywood stars in the past.
