Given an opportunity, the rural youth can scale great heights of achievement in sports and bring laurels to the nation. Under the project, a few handpicked young athletes are given rigorous training by professional trainers every day. The athletes aim to participate in the national and international marathons to prove their metal from time to time. It is ensured that they continue their interest in athletics as a career option even after their education at SSM.
