Ajwani, 62 years old, has covered many inter-city and inter-state runs, raising funds for social causes and helping the needy. This year, he undertook the BOB Golden Quadrilateral expedition to raise funds to support disabled army soldiers, army athletes/para athletes and provide basic educational facilities to tribal schools. The run started on 8th November, 2022 in Mumbai and thereafter covered the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan and Gujarat, before returning to Mumbai for the last leg of the run.
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Ajay K Khurana, Executive Director, Bank of Baroda said, “Bank of Baroda is proud to be associated with Shri Kumar Ajwani and we appreciate his efforts for worthy causes. Through the BOB Golden Quadrilateral Run, we are supporting the rehabilitation of Indian soldiers, who have been wounded in battle while defending our country as well as helping tribal schools.”
Shri Kumar Ajwani said, “The BOB Golden Quadrilateral Run was planned by Team Fab Foundation in order to create awareness and raise funds to help those in need. This is the second year of my association with Bank of Baroda and I am thankful to the Bank for their unstinting support and for extending their help to disadvantaged communities.”
Bank of Baroda was also associated with Shri Ajwani last year for the K2K run wherein Shri Ajwani has set a new record by becoming the first senior citizen to run from Kashmir to Kanyakumari (K2K) covering 3,800 kms in 67 days.
