Pinkathon is an organization which was founded in 2012 with a vision of making every woman healthy in India has been getting invaluable support from United Sisters Foundation to realize their vision. Pinkathon works on the philosophy that women is the basic foundation of any family and a family can only stay fit and healthy if female of the family follow a healthy lifestyle. It is ironical that while the health of women is at the base for a healthy family and society, 80% of women are reported to ignore their health. To bring a change in this situation, Pinakthon strongly feels that Men has to be actively involved in this process of change and they need to start respecting the efforts of woman as an individual and stand next to her in all her endeavours.
