John is marathon man
John Abraham is the marathon man this year for the annual Mumbai Marathon. He wants to take his role as the ambassador
He will play a major role in organising the event, will help raise funds and actively publicise the event.
John Abraham says, “The event is scheduled for January 17 next year, but we have announced that we will accept entries starting now.
The sole reason is that we want to take the Mumbai Marathon to a different level. We want people to not only go for the dream run, but also aim for the half or full marathon and with proper practice, one can do it. Those who finish in certified time, will be eligible for marathons like Boston and London as well. As many as 140 charitable organisations benefit from the collections of the marathon. This seven-year-old marathon managed to collect eight crores and next year, we will be crossing 10-12 crores.”
John is going to take his role as the ambassador very seriously. He says, “I will be playing a double role this year. I will encourage people by showing that if I can do it, you can do it too. Mumbai is one of the most generous cities. As an event ambassador, I will have lot of other obligations and I will be the first person to be there and the last to leave. Anil and Vivek Singh, the organisers of the marathon, told me that the entry sequence in New York is the ideal way to motivate people to participate.”
The star has currently taken time off to heal as he had been limping on crutches. Speaking about himself as a sports fanatic, he said, “I have got off the crutches just last week and the bone I broke was the load bearing bone. But I know one thing that whenever I get injured, I try and work ten times harder. That’s my natural tendency. In fact, this injury will motivate me to do things better. I am a sports person and my orthopedic surgeon says that I am crazy, but he really can’t stop me.”
