Sharmila, Soha to run Mumbai Marathon for a cause

New Delhi, Jan 14 (IANS) Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and her daughter Soha Ali Khan will take part in the Mumbai Marathon Sunday in support of a cause taken up by actor Rahul Bose's NGO.

Sharmila said 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”.

“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,” she said in a statement.

This is the fourth year of the marathon.
