Bhubaneswar: The Staff and the Cadets of Sainik School, Bhubaneswar, participated in the Fit India Freedom Run 2.0 to commemorate India’s 75 years of independence — Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
During the inaugural session, all the staff members and the cadets of SS Bhubaneswar took the pledge to perform a plog run of 2 kilometres in their surrounding areas and pay their tribute to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi on October 2.
The teachers guided the cadets to keep their surroundings clean so as to get fresh air and reduce pollution. An unclean environment leads to an unhealthy state of society, invasion of diseases and many more.
The staff members and the cadets also took part in the events like running, walking, cycling and different exercises on regular basis. Various types of physical activities were also performed from August 15 to Sep 4 and covered more than 2000 km distance in running and cycling.
Fit India movement in the school is aimed to create physical awareness among the students and the staff through various physical activities to keep them physically fit in their respective lives.
“Fit India Freedom Run involves teaching and practising the art of taking care of one’s body and health daily. Sainik School Bhubaneswar gives equal importance to physical fitness as much as it gives importance to its academics. This movement has definitely made all of us health-conscious and it has been the testimony of our willpower to excel by all the Staff members and the Cadets of the School who had participated enthusiastically,” the school said via a press release.
