What is Soldierathon?
Soldierathon is a unique event which is created to not only honor the wounded and martyred Indian troops who gave their lives in defense of the country but also a movement towards a disease free & fitter Bharat. Every iteration of Soldierathon aims to not only honor India’s brave hearts but also to foster an atmosphere where the people of India, particularly the youth, are “made aware of the immense sacrifices” made by the country’s defense forces.
Major Surendra Poonia, VSM of Fitistan, is on a mission to reawaken in the populace a sense of pride for the soldiers who toil selflessly every day to uphold India’s integrity, unity, sovereignty and safety. He is hopeful that through a soldierathon, people will not only honor the brave heart’s’ sacrifice on a special day but also put an emphasis on their health.
