About NSF Run
Nanban sports foundation is an NGO established with a motive to Improve the sports situation in India. Our aim is to alleviate the pain that sporting talent undergo when they are faced with the question whether they want to pursue education or sports and groom them to be world class sports persons.
Our mission is to "establish sports as a truly rewarding opportunity for athletes, corporates, foundations, Government, Public and India.
This needs a fundamental change in approach as to why India fails to develop sporting talent and their goals as their early careers.
India has a population of 1.4 Billion whereas our contribution in the Olympics is not even 1%. Hence, we are tapping the potential talents from the grassroot level by sponsoring their sporting goals in the means of stipend.
Our founder, the youngest Arjuna awardee Kutraleeswaran, has given up sporting career due to lack of financial support and this led to the birth of NSF.
NSF has successfully completed its first year with its mission and vision intact. To commemorate this milestone and to promote the importance of physical fitness among the youngsters, a run is being organized in Chennai, "NSF RUN 2022". We are presenting this event on 28/8/2022 (Sunday) in CEG, Anna University, Chennai. We are calling people of Chennai and all over Tamil Nadu to participate with full excitement. Registrations are in full swing for all categories. The event is being organized at par with other Marathons events in India.
Runners will be supported with T-shirts, Medal and running bib. The event is a non-commercial event and organized purely for the joy of running and there by providing a platform for all to compete with themselves and promto fitness as a part of their lifestyle.
