About Virtual Marathon

The Virtual Marathon is a fun initiative that is being conducted to raise funds towards providing scholarship support to underprivileged students & promoting volunteerism in the society.  Supporters can join from anywhere in the world and can take part in the Virtual Marathon at their convenience.  The funds raised through this marathon will be used in supporting underprivileged children’s higher education and supporting changemakers. 

Be it organizing regular blood donation camps, teaching under-privileged children, conducting menstrual hygiene awareness camps or planting saplings, the YFS volunteers have been greatly involved in social activities. 

YFS Volunteers also reached out with multiple relief initiatives for those reeling under the impact of COVID-19. Through the virtual marathon, we intend to ignite the spirit of giving & promote volunteerism in the society.

Owing to the global pandemic, the participants are requested to take complete safety measures when they step outside for the marathon. Any form of social gathering or running in groups is strongly discouraged.

How Does It Work?

  • Interested supporters are required to register themselves for the Virtual Marathon through our website and contribute to one or more of the causes listed here. Tag in your friends and family members to take part in this virtual marathon along with you.

  • Test your fitness through one of the several virtual challenges designed to be taken part in according to your convenience. Choose from the 1-2K(Maja run)/ 5K /10 K/21.1K/42.2k and test your bounds. Participants can also choose to walk the same distances or register for the Majja walk instead of running.
