To create a sports eco system / community of sports.
In addition MCR launched Prayas, India's first Sports Fund for budding sportspersons across the country.
We require to be fit and people underestimate the value of fitness the impact of fitness on our mental capacity. The more we train, the more we look after our bodies, the more equipped we are to sustain ourselves in our jobs whatever it may be. We can never undervalue the tool of the body that has been blessed to us, so I think fitness is something everybody requires in their own way. Swimming, jogging, training in the gym or playing a sport casually; these things definitely adds value to an individual's life. My Country Run is a great initiative by Jain University, a reminder to the people out there."ROBIN UTHAPPA
"My Country Run has been initiated by Dr. Chenraj Roychand, President – Jain (Deemed-to-be University). They have been doing it for the last two years – this year’s the third. All the money collected goes to the sportspersons, supporting the defense and the police forces. They have trained many sportspersons themselves. Running is good for mental and physical health, and it’s for a great cause, so I wholeheartedly support it."Padma Bhushan Dr. L Subramaniam

"My Country Run is a wonderful initiative of JGI Group and Jain (Deemed-to-be University). The problem with a lot of our academia is that we don’t focus on sports. And I’m very happy to know that this Group supports sports. I noticed that many of the fine players in many sporting fields in Bangalore and Karnataka are coming from these institutions. So, I support this great initiative. Our country has to become a lot fitter and a lot more athletic than it is. We deserve better lives, and the way to give ourselves better lives is to get fitter."Shekhar Gupta

"My Country Run by Jain (Deemed-to-be University) is an initiative to encourage sports. As we know, sports is quite neglected in our country. So, I think we as average persons should bring out the sportspersons in us, because sports teaches us how to take life, success and failures together. It helps us be fit, which means a healthy mind and body will be beneficial to the nation."D. Roopa Moudgil, IPS
"I think that Jain (Deemed-to-be University) has started a wonderful initiative, My Country Run to support sports in our country.

And I wholeheartedly support it."Huma Qureshi
