Model and Actress Dipannita Sharma and Claudia Ciesla graced Mumbai Juniorthon on Sunday in Mumbai. It’s a third edition of running event for children & junior athletes in Mumbai which started in 2015.

The goal of JUNIORTHON is to encourage outdoor activities and physical fitness amongst children by giving them an opportunity to accomplish the goal of running.
Talking about initiative , Dipannita said, “We all know that outdoor activities has become so limited for children as they are always busy on gadgets, computer and phone but, I am really glad today so many kids have gathered here to participate in Mumbai Juniorthon and I am really happy to associate with such amazing initiative. I feel if children can take part in physical activities like this then it’s really good for their health and in future, I am also looking forward to run at least a half marathon”
Talking about Juniorthon Claudia said, “I am fitness enthusiast myself and I like to motivate people and encourage them. I feel it is really necessary in our daily life for children as well as adults to be healthy and exercise regularly. I am feeling really happy seeing all these kids early in the morning and, I feel we should also appreciate their parents for supporting them and bringing them here early in the morning, so I feel whole atmosphere here is really wonderful.
I always observe that whenever kids get time they sit with phones and gadgets. It’s fine to spend some time with gadgets but it shouldn’t be their prime agenda especially in free time. I feel its parent’s responsibility to push to explore outdoor activities for healthy lifestyle.”
Sab TV’s popular soap Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Tapu Sena also graced Mumbai Juniorthon to encourage children, Nidhi Bhanushali who plays character of Sonalika Bhide in the popular soap shared her feeling about the initiative, she said, “This Mumbai Juniorthon is motivation for me as well because I am not a morning person at all but today we have came here to encourage these kids and the energy of these kids is infectious. I feel kids like us should participate in outdoor activates rather than sitting at home and playing games on laptops and mobile which we will makes us more fitter and healthier”
