The vision of the Purple Run is to spread awareness on mental health. A portion of the proceeds raised at The Purple Run will be donated to NIMHANS – National Institute of Mental Health & Neuro Science
Alzheimer’s is the 5th leading cause of death in people over 55 years old, and in India, more than 4 million people suffer from some form of dementia. Despite this, there’s a stigma attached to mental illness amongst us.
