We’re back again this year in Hatirjheel with BYLC Running with Purpose 2024!

BYLC believes good health is the key to achieving high performance in any field. Alongside teaching leadership skills and preparing youth for diverse careers, we also champion the values of healthy living and fitness. Since 2018, we have been hosting the BYLC Run, with a renewed focus on promoting a "Greener City" this year. Acknowledging the sharp decline in air quality in Dhaka, we emphasize the joint responsibility of citizens and the government in addressing this challenge. The 7.5K BYLC Running with Purpose event will center on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11, highlighting the significance of creating inclusive and sustainable urban spaces. This year's theme, "for a Greener City", aims to raise awareness and encourage everyone to contribute to the solution actively.
