Ltd. remarked, “We are delighted to commence Little Millennium Kids Marathon in Bangalore for the first time and honored to have the “Queen of Track and Field” and Padam Shri Ms PT Usha on this occasion. Our rich legacy of having nurtured 1,30,000 children across 750 preschool centers in 150 cities has made us realize that besides educating and grooming children we also have a responsibility of creating an environment which is safe and secure for all children and promotes healthy development. Little Millennium follows a zero tolerance policy against child abuse and the key objective of this marathon is to spread awareness in support of this cause amongst the general public. Little Millennium Kids Marathon extends the spirit of sports and physical education by providing young children a platform to run and express themselves freely while using the platform to highlight the importance of an environment that is safe from child abuse”.
Ms PT Usha flagged off the Marathon amongst enthusiastic children. All the participants were awarded with a medal and a certificate of participation for participating in the important event.
Reiterating the seriousness of this cause, Ms PT Usha said, “Child abuse is a very important cause and I’m very happy to join Little Millennium to raise awareness in support of this cause.
Little Millennium preschools are doing a great job in promoting healthy development and a love for running at an early age. I’m glad to be a part of this initiative and really enjoyed running with children.
Elaborating on the expansion plans for Little Millennium in Southern India, Mr. Bajaj said, “We have a presence across Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad and have 200 preschools operational, nurturing over 10,000 children. We have plans to double this number in the next 1-2 years.
