CHENNAI VOLUNTEERS :

Chennai Volunteers is a Not-for-Profit initiative that works towards enhancing awareness on the role of individuals in society. The organization facilitates volunteers to make meaningful skill and time contribution to beneficiaries and NGOs.
- “Chennai Volunteers is happy to be associated as volunteer partner for D2D 2018. Since this is one of the largest annual race events in the city that supports a charitable cause, promotes a healthy lifestyle and includes all citizens of our city across age groups, we do look forward to taking part in this. Last year, the volunteers had a great time helping out with different facets of the event, especially handling the smooth function of the race. We think that the next best way to feel the magic of this event is to be present as a volunteer. We have seen a trend from last year that some volunteers get so inspired and motivated when they volunteer at the run, that they take up running as a hobby and we encourage that as well.” – Ms. Rinku Mecheri, Founder, Chennai Volunteer

The message is simple. Do not litter. Put waste where it belongs. In the right bins and at the right time.
