IPS Officer dedicates his marathon record to MOHAN Foundation in presence of the Tamil Nadu Governor
During the Dream Runners Marathon in Chennai on July 22, 2018, Dr. K. Jayanth Murali IPS, Director Vigilance and Anti-corruption, Tamil Nadu, who has been supporting MOHAN Foundation came forward to run the half marathon to create awareness about organ donation though a special gesture. He decided to run the entire length of the half marathon by duct taping his mouth. When the mouth is taped the only option to breathe in, is through the nose and this makes running especially long distances extremely difficult. He covered the distance of 21 km in this way in 2 hours and succeeded in creating a new India Book of Records. Dr. Jayanth dedicated the achieved record (medal and certificate) to MOHAN Foundation in the presence of Honourable Governor of Tamil Nadu, Shri. Banwarilal Purohit on 30th October 2018 at Raj Bhavan, Chennai.
