Being a proud sponsor of such an appreciable initiative taken by OSAC, I would like to thank U.S Embassy in India & OSAC, Delhi Chapter for providing us with an opportunity to sponsor the run for health; run for fun. It is indeed a pleasure to be associated with this one-of-a-kind initiative as it also promotes Indo-American bond.” said Brig. Rajan Oberoi, Global CEO, Peregrine.
