About the petathon
Imagination, positive energy and their shared passion for life is what brought Ruchi Makkad, an entrepreneur (founder of any surprise any place) and Neha Madan, a Chartered Accountant by profession, together. After brainstorming over endless coffee dates, their tiny nugget of an idea bloomed into a full fledged business plan and that is how 'The Pink Owl' was born.
Neha and Ruchi who are also full time moms, always knew that they wanted to do something fun and creative which was fulfilling at the same time. They've followed this dream by curating events with different ideas and themes, for all those who wish to celebrate and live life less ordinary.
The Pink Owl was established in 2017 with a vision to create a portfolio of grade A event assets that will set industry benchmarks for their uniqueness. Something that people will look forward to year after year.

The Sai Celebration 1 Mile Petathon is an opportunity for pet parents to get outdoors with their dogs and run together to experience a new concept in fitness for all.
The fun run which is also a fundraiser, culminates in a breakfast time fair.

teams, and a fair featuring fun activities, agility games, exhibition and sale of pet products, food for pets and humans, a fun pet personality contest, grooming zone, and an Adopt/Foster a pet section.
