71-yr-old Mathematician’s Solo Run For Getting Expats’ Support

The run will end at the Kerala-Karnataka border on December 6


For 71-year-old George R Thomas, age is just a number. The septuagenarian, an expatriate, has begun a 21-km solo run from Wednesday across the length of the state to exhort other expatriates to unite for rebuilding Kerala.

“I can be taken out of Kerala, but Kerala cannot be taken out of me. My objective behind the solo run is to remind the expatriates, who are yet to help in rebuilding the state after the devastating floods, that we need to stand shoulder to shoulder during these difficult times,” says Thomas, who is also a mathematician.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will be flagged off the half-marathon at 8.30 am at his official residence in Cliff House, Thiruvananthapuram. The run will end at the Kerala-Karnataka border on December 6.

During his trans-state half-marathon being organised for the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund (CMDRF), Thomas will also take classes for students in various schools and colleges, in a Socratic tradition, in a bid to lift the level of mathematics in Kerala.

Thomas will also donate his 20 cents of land at Kadampanad for a library, an anganwadi, a children’s play area and car parking. 

M/s Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd is also partnering with the event.

In 2008, Thomas had run from Kanyakumari to Sree Moo kambika temple at Kollur in Udupi district of Karnataka to create awareness on the harmful impact of burning plastic waste in debris. In doing so, Thomas became the first person to run the entire length of Kerala.
