Soha Ali Khan Actress Soha Ali Khan and her mother Sharmila Tagore will participate in the Mumbai Marathon for a cause.

The daughter-mother duo is lending support to the campaign of actor Rahul Bose 's NGO.

Sharmila Tagore said in a statement: “I am participating in this marathon to support HEAL, a project run by Rahul Bose's NGO, to raise awareness for sexually abused children. If this small effort in anyway alleviates the misery and stigma that these little children have to face, it will be worth my while.”

The veteran actress added that children were the future of India and as UNICEF'S goodwill ambassador she had taken a pledge "to speak up for the cause of children whenever and wherever it is necessary”.




Joining the celebrities would be Bose's adopted children from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. These kids, studying at a school in Bangalore, are studying on scholarships provided by the actor.

“Last year too these kids were part of the marathon but could not participate as they were legally below the age required for participation. But, this year they are allowed to run,” said Bose.

The actor feels that the Mumbai Marathon is the best community event "especially in the wake of the 26/11 attacks”.

“This is the only occasion where differences visible in the everyday life melt away and the entire city comes together in the spirit of oneness,” Bose said.

This is the fourth year of the marathon. It will be held on January 18. Other Bollywood celebs like Gul Panag and Milind Soman will also take part in it.
