Heal a Child Foundation
Heal a Child Foundation is a Charitable trust & Non Profit Organization incorporated in Hyderabad in June 2010, founded with the objective to help sick children in need of medical treatment. We do not focus on a specific area of illness. Our aid is available to any sick child who needs it.
Our mission is to save sick children who may not survive, not because of their illness, but only because the family cannot afford to pay for medical expenses & prolonged in-patient treatment at the hospital.
The children who we support are directly referred by local Children’s hospitals. The child is treated by the hospital and funded by HAC. Most cases are newborns that are born premature and need intensive case support. The average cost of each case is 1.0 Lakh , cases like transplants range from 8 to 20 lakhs per child. When the child is well, HAC does a review and then the child goes back home.
The Trust pays for the medical expenses of very poor and critically ill children and has saved over 260+ children in the last 6 years.
We actively work with Rainbow Children’s Hospital, Fernandez Hospital, Ankura Hospital, Lotus Children’s Hospital, Paramitha Children’s Hospital, Suraksha Children’s Hospital and Nice Hospital.

ABOUT HYDERABAD RUNNERS
The Airtel Hyderabad Marathon today might have become synonymous with many things which are Hyderabadi. It owes the current status to the vision, passion and hard work of the members of Hyderabad Runners, the team that had introduced this mammoth racing extravaganza to the city of Hyderabad.
Born as not-for-profit organisation in 2007, a good four years before the Marathon began to run across Hyderabad, the team dedicated its endeavour to inculcate community running culture in the city, roping in people from all walks of life. The baby steps covered shorter runs before the half and full marathons made their place on the map.
Mission : To promote running as the preferred form of exercise in and around the twin cities.
Vision : Reach out to every section of the city with the goal of achieving a fit, athletic and active Hyderabad.
From a modest beginning in 2011 to the mega culmination in August 2015, Airtel Hyderabad Marathon has completely redefined the running culture of the city of the Nizams.
It has become a signature event of the city where the city's big and famous, young and old, men and women, all run, with zeal in the heart and 'josh' in the mind.
The concept of community running may still be in its infancy in India, but Hyderabad Runners through runs of various specifications and themes, have set a tone and a calendar that spurs many to reschedule their plans for the sake of running.
In its sixth version, Airtel Marathon salutes the spirit of Hyderabad and promises to deliver the marathon bonanza in its standards, rewards, engagement and ultimate runner experience.
Today Airtel Hyderabad Marathon is recognized as the second biggest marathon in India after Mumbai Marathon, and one of the best-organised city runs in the world.
You may just run into your favourite film star, you may overtake your local politician, may run alongside a top business man. All made possible only at the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon!
