Women are an integral part of our society and it is imperative that their individual potential be fully tapped and nurtured. At Amway, we have always believed in empowering women and this has been a core focus area for us. We thank the Bidhannagar Police Department for giving us the opportunity to support this initiative”.
To keep the participants energized and hydrated, Amway provided the participants with energy drinks – XS and Nutrilite All Plant Protein Powder from Amway’s nutrition range. Additionally, Amway also gave away gift hampers filled with Amway products to all the podium finishers.
