While announcing the 2nd edition of Skechers Performance Mumbai Walkathon, Rahul Vira, Chief Executive Office, Skechers South Asia Pvt. Ltd. said, “Keeping in mind our busy lifestyles, we tend to least prioritise our health. Skechers through this walkathon initiative brings the city together to celebrate the festive atmosphere whilst promoting fitness as a culture in India. We want to inspire people and invoke the need to be on the move and stay fit, through which people would experience walking from a different perspective altogether. Adding an activity as simple as including brisk walking in our day to day lives especially among the youngsters to achieve a healthier and a fitter self. Skechers not only made walking fun but with the GoWalk 5 shoes it aims at giving the user the most comfortable walk ever.”
Fun experiences from street artists, musical, and dance performance at the end of the finish. Well Known faces like Melvin Louis, Awez Darbar, Nagma Mirajkar, Anushka Manchanda, etc. would be joining us at the event. Getting fit was never this fun. You are going to love this for sure!
