The successful staging of Nalanda e-Run 2017 on Sunday, 16 April was the culmination of many factors – chief of which was the strong public support towards Nalanda for providing holistic community education.  We are grateful to all sponsors, runners, and volunteers from near or far who motivated us with your enthusiastic participation.

Here are some more delightful snapshots of last Sunday’s joyful event.  Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.  Thank you all!
