About The Cause

You are aware that the tobacco use has become a life threatening menace in India. In spite of the sustained efforts taken by the Government, the number of tobacco users has not dwindled considerably.

 

A report by the International Tobacco Control Project says that there are 275 million tobacco users in India.  Among several striking findings of this report was that, while many smokers and tobacco users said they knew of the health risks, only a small proportion said they would like to quit. At this rate, it is feared that there will be 1.5 million tobacco related deaths in India by 2020.

 

In these circumstances, the Anti Tobacco Day falling on May 31, 2014 gets top most priority. It is everybody’s duty to propagate anti-tobacco.

 

To commemorate the Anti Tobacco Day, The Natchathraa, Associated With UTech Media & Silhoutte Ad, has planned to organize a Tobacco Free India Marathon on the 1st of June, 2014. The marathon will start from War Memorial and go up to Adyar Aavin Circle, take a U turn there, and come back to War Memorial. The total distance to be covered is approximately 21 KMs.

 

In this Tobacco Free India Marathon, we expect the participation of about 8000 persons from all walks of life – athletes, professional runners, corporate employees and students – both men and women.​
