Physical Fitness is an important factor to keep your heart healthy and functioning smoothly. Knowing the value of it, Danvanthiri celebrated the “Healthy Heart” campaign in the noblest fashion. Danvanthiri participated and sponsored the HEARTWALK and RUN organized by Oracle India. The funds collected through this event went to the Needy Heart Foundation, an NGO that funds surgeries for the poor.
The event was organized on the 27th November 2016, at Prestige Tech Park II, Marathahalli, Bangalore. The event that kick started as early as 6 am saw an astounding number of participants for the 5K walk/5K Run/10K Run. The program started with Zumba dance to warm up the audience. Seeing the energy of the participants tapping their feet to some peppy songs, prepping up for the walk, supporting such a wonderful cause and the thrill to stay healthy and active was mind-blowing. The whole of the team participated in the marathon, which turned out to be a superb team-building activity.
Being a life-saving app, and having an important feature of – Organ Donation in it, we aided the cause by promoting our motto “Have a heart, become a Donor” carved on bright red balloons. The balloons were a big hit among children, who loved playing with them and elders sensing the importance of the cause. Our customized booklets with a message “Sometimes an apple a day is not enough to keep the doctor away” were distributed to every participant.
The ceremony ended with handing over goodies and special gifts to winners. Danvanthiri got an opportunity to spread awareness on the healthy heart campaign and how the app helps in dealing with any heart attack or emergency situations by just the click of a button.
A healthy lifestyle, eating right, being physically fit makes the heart healthier and through this event the awareness was raised that “Exercise should be regarded as a tribute to a healthy heart.”
