Along with promoting the spirit of togetherness, the event also aimed to inculcate a healthy lifestyle among the youngsters as they are future of the nation as well as the 'Change makers'.

The event included races for sub-junior boys and girls, junior boys and girls, senior men and women and veteran men.

The Union territory's Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha was the chief guest during the event.

He appeared all enthused to witness such a huge participation of youth and later distributed prizes among the winners at Police Golf Course in Srinagar.
