The Surinder Jakhar IFFCO Trust will organise 2nd chapter of “Nashon se door, khelon ki aur” marathon on Sunday, November 17, the day coincides with Balidan Diwas of Lala Lajpat Rai, revolutionary freedom fighter.

Convener Sandeep Jakhar on Wednesday released T-shirt that will be gifted to the participants for 5km and 10km run. He said that Surinder Jakhar, who was youngest chairman of Asia’s cooperative fertiliser giant, captained cricket team while pursuing graduation in DAV College here.

After his election to IFFCO, he organised sports festivals, supported gymnasiums and games in the region to motivate youth keep distance from drugs. A befitting tribute to such visionary man could be given by promoting marathon. The organisers expect substantial participation by youth not only from different segments in Punjab but neighbouring states also.
