Ayushmann Khurrana has turned ambassador for the second edition of Wings For Life World Run, a charity event to support those with spinal cord injuries.
On May 3, thousands of runners will participate in a unique run that will take place, simultaneously, across six continents, and 35 countries.
In India, the run will kick off at 4:30 pm local time in Gurgaon. It is being organised under the aegis of Government of Haryana and the Haryana Olympics Association.
"Participating in the world run is a great opportunity for everyone around the globe to come together for one purpose, running for those who can't. This is for an excellent cause and I'm thrilled to be associated with Wings For Life. I'm also looking forward to running myself," Ayushmann said.
"I have my own back story as I was flat-footed in my childhood and it used to be difficult for me to run. I had to get treatment and wear certain kind of shoes for that," the actor said.
Wings for Life is a non-profit research foundation established in 2004 which supports and finances research and clinical trials across the world aimed at healing the injured spinal cord.
