‘Run for Security’ is an initiative by NBF where we connect our communities, especially our youth towards the cause of the security establishment. Here we try to sensitize them towards our national security concerns and bring about a sense of belongingness, and to honor the families of our brave hearts who lost their lives fighting for us. This is the second edition of the initiative launched in 2017 to felicitate by the families of the Martyrs who lost their lives in the line of duty. In 2017, we had the felicitation ceremony of 40 such families by and in the presence of the Honorable (then) Governor of Haryana Prof. Kaptan Singh Solanki Ji (Now the Hon’ble Governor of Tripura) and Mananiya Indresh Kumar Ji, National Executive Member, RSS. There was a ‘Run’ organized with 6,000 participants to show solidarity with the families and our armed forces. Several respected National and International sportspersons also participated in the ‘Run’. This year we are adding the issue of water conservation and will including the families impacted by ‘Uri’ and ‘Pulwama’ to the initiative as well. We will also see a rise in participation to 10,000 alongside more Sportspersons endorsing the ‘Run’.
