TGAA runs against hunger!

 

The Green Acres Academy, Chembur, recently participated in the Run Against Hunger to raise vital funds for the treatment of children suffering from acute malnutrition in India

Run Against Hunger is an international sporting event held in schools around the globe every year where every lap a child runs is pledged for by their family and friends.

We had a small sensitization session with the children on the importance of nutrition, sanitation and avoiding junk food. It was quite a sight when the “Junk Food Monster” made an appearance but couldn’t scare the healthy young children of Green Acres Academy since they had already promised to eat their veggies and fruits!

Post the interactive session, the run at the football turf was flagged off by the Principal Ms. Manju Mehta and thus began a day of fun and enjoyment. As children from classes 1 to 6 streamed in, they could barely contain the excitement of running in tow with their classmates. We had a tough time getting the children to stop, a lot of those energetic kids couldn’t have enough of it. Cheering them along were their super supportive class teachers and staff.

Ms. Manju Mehta, on behalf of the entire school, presented us with a giant cheque during the school’s Diwali function, symbolizing the generous amount collected through the pledges made by parents.

We are truly overwhelmed by the amazing response we received from the children, staff and the parents and can’t wait to come back again next year and partner with enthusiastic family of Green.
