Q&A 2019-08-21T16:40:02+05:30

Solefest is an event where we categorically cater to Marathon runners. We won’t say we are different,but we would say we intend to create a different class of event. Primarily our event is charity based,we do not intend to make money out of the event and our cost to the runners are so low compared to the services rendered that it would be hard to believe at the first instance itself.

As per statistical data, the rate of organ donation is just 1 in two million people and this was at a dismal 1 in 20 million people five years before. By pledging to donate our organs we are trying to help those people who wait endlessly for an organ to sustain their life. Our organs will help in saving one more life. So solefest intends to carry this humanitarian work through its event to a farther level.
