Co-founder of Beardo, Ashutosh Valani opined,
“Beardo-Thon as a property was introduced to create awareness about Men’s health and fitness. We are taking the second season to encourage more people to run and raise awareness about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. Beardo-Thon is for everyone who believes in being a contributor and extending their support for the cause – running for the greater good!”
“By being a part of this event, our main aim is to educate people about prostate cancer and the importance of early detection and treatment modalities. Through Beardo-Thon, we want to raise awareness amongst people about the importance and necessity of leading a healthy lifestyle. Every little choice made in the course of the day brings people closer to or takes them away from cancer. At Beardo-Thon, anybody can run, you don’t have to be athletic to run, support and determination is all you need. Beardo-Thon has been one of our major marketing initiatives so far and it has proven quite effective; the responses we received in our first year of Beardo-Thon encouraged us to expand into 6 cities for our second season”
