Our Lady of Perpetual Succour High School completed 60 years of imparting quality education this year and this called for a celebration. The OLPS Alumni Association organized the OLPS Fun Run 2017 on Sunday, 26th November 2017. The 2.5 km Fun Run was pioneered in order to bring together the members of the school and have a merry time.
In its former edition, the OLPS Run started with 850 participants including the school students, parents, teachers & staff, and the alumni. The renowned Mr. Pratap Shetty, the remarkable coach from the Bengal Warriors-Pro Kabaddi and a part of the Maharashtra Kabaddi team, was the Chief Guest for the event. All of the participants were present on the school grounds at 6:30 a.m. on a Sunday which clearly displayed the level of excitement in the crowd. The event was supported by the Dhol & Tasha troupe of OLPS that added the element of enthusiasm in the participants as well as the spectators.
Initially, awarm upwas conducted by the Fitness partner and the crowd started enjoying and getting ready for the Fun Run.The entire route had water & energy drinks available &was managed by volunteers who assisted the participants in regards to the direction. There was an ambulance stationed on the route in case of emergencies. The involvement of people from the school was exceptional. OLPS brought together a cluster of various groups and reunited them. The run ended right where it started, at the school grounds and we could all hear the roar from the participants and the spectators. A post run cool down was conducted by the Fitness Partner which led to a fun-filled cooldown and converted into a crazy dance on Zingaat!With the ideal arrangement for the venue consisting of appropriate food, water & energy drink counters, medical aid, and a photo booth the run stood out to be an excellent one!
