At the Goel Ganga Group, fitness comes first. With that in mind, we had organised a day of fun sports and activities for school children and their parents at GCube- our state-of-the-art family fitness centre at Ganga Glitz in Undri. The young children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and we were delighted to have them with us!
