The Forum Purple Run was conducted by Forum Centre City Mall, Mysuru, this morning with an objective of creating awareness about Alzheimer’s Disease —  a mental disorder that’s commonly prevailing among the people aged above 50 plus.

Runs were conducted in four categories — 3 kms, 5 kms, 10 kms and 21 kms and the top three winners were awarded with cash prizes and gift vouchers in all categories for male and female.
