Government of India has initiated Fit India Freedom Run 2.0 on 13th August and extended it up to 2nd October 2021. Following this, All-India Council for Technical Education has requested participation of Higher Education Institutes in this event.

This run encourages fitness and helps us all to get free from obesity, laziness, stress, anxiety, disease, etc. The concept behind this is that it could be run anywhere, anytime and runs his own race and times his own pace.

Towards achieving this mission, Fit India proposes to undertake various initiatives and conduct events to achieve the following objectives:

  • To promote fitness as easy, fun, and free.
  • To spread awareness on fitness and various physical activities that promotes fitness through focused campaigns.
  • To encourage indigenous sports.
  • To make fitness reach every school, college/university, panchayat/village, etc.
  • To create a platform for citizens of India to share information, drive awareness and encourage sharing of personal fitness stories.

The event commenced on 18th of August 2021 and ended on 28th September 2021. The total Kms covered by adding all the individual Kms were 2966 kms. The best part of this event was every participant was highly enthusiastic and consistent. The participants didn’t just keep themselves fit during this pandemic but also learnt to keep their mental health at peace. The participants learnt a lot from other participants and understood the meaning of, *Team Effort is the Best Effort*.  At the end, one just remembers, “Put all excuses aside and remember this: You are capable”. The entire program was managed by the Student Council of DYPBBI under the able guidance of teachers of NSS and Extracurricular Committee.
