D2D is an initiative by like-minded souls who have come forward to bring awareness on the worthy causes and to raise funds mainly for the underprivileged children through the event of D2D.

D2D has also inspired many runners to run for a cause at different times for the underprivileged children and many charitable organizations. Through running and cycling activities, D2D has found numberless ways to help the less privileged children and has inspired thousands of veteran and first-time runners to run and cycle for a cause.

D2D Marathon is organized with two major objectives:

  • Firstly, the event is a fundraiser for a good cause, and like the previous years this year the funds generated will be used for upliftment of underprivileged children treatment.
  • Secondly, to encourage participants to run and cycle along with their family and friends to keep good health and take part for a cause. D2D motive is to get the entire family with children to take part in the running or cycling.

The running event will be conducted inside Anna University campus.
