Run for Diabetic Awareness , 25 Oct, 2015.

Love you – Poly’s Holistic  Students! Always there, for a good cause!
Very precious, sporting and fitness-loving Holistics came ,ran and conquered our hearts! What was great, was to turn up (despite our beloved South Delhi Polytechnic for Women being closed for Hols)@ 5am! ( A special thank you to Hostel Wardens to come down at that unearthly hour and handout our Bib NOs & Goody Bags. And also, to let us use the Mess Loos;)
1st-yr Holistic Students were specially INCREDIBLE! Imagine, they were still dancing with d Zumba DJ at the 'Warm Up area' (after doing 6Kms & 11Kms), coolly yelling out, "Cooling Down, Mam!"
Special Mention: Interesting eclectic gathering and wasunique reaching Nehru Stadium in the dark...the AWESOME Sunita Godhare (the 1st Woman Marathoner of India) was all over the place -pepping up, briefing and counselling one and everyone; Love you – Poly’s Holistic  Students! Always there, for a good cause!
