True to the spirit of military training to face the challenges, 1,900 cadets of the National Defence Academy (NDA) clad in their squadron colour T-shirts, participated in the World Wildlife Federation (WWF) sponsored X-Country run on Sunday. The special significance of the run was NDA’s tie up with WWF on ‘The Save Tiger’ movement. The event that started at 6 am was flagged off by a senior officer at NDA. “The cadets covered over 16 km of cross country run before concluding the event that sported the message ‘Save Tiger’. The prize distribution ceremony was sponsored by WWF,” said Bhagirath Dey, spokesperson, NDA. A yearly affair, this was the first time the run was organised with the mission to spread a message. “The run was followed by a signature campaign, wherein the cadets signed on a banner conveying their support to the movement. Infact, WWF is planning to go to various parts of the country with the signature campaign conveying the support of the academy to people from different regions,” added Dey. One of the important highlights of the event was a photo exhibition organised by WWF.
