Covering a distance of 2 kilometers, and the walkathon witnessed passionate participation from more than a 200 residents of the city, who walked the distance with cheer.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. G Satish, MD, Aster Prime Hospitals, said, “Today’s Walkathon focused on refining the concept of a healthy living in the minds of everyone to ignite enthusiasm for rejuvenating health. With the effects of changing lifestyle and food habits, there is no time for exercise and healthy living. Only having knowledge about heart health is not enough; we also need to incorporate healthy changes in day to day activities to have a healthy heart.”

 

“We at Aster Prime Hospitals firmly believe in sensitizing people about the role of walking or exercise in preventing heart disease and we are glad we organized this walkathon. Walking and increasing physical activities are important steps toward healthier living. Brisk walking for just 20 minutes a day can help an individual fight many chronic diseases,” he added.

 

Dr. C Raghu, Chief Cardiologist, and Director, Aster Prime Hospitals said, “This is a big initiative and I am very happy to see that our hospital contribution towards spreading awareness among the people to stay fit and healthy and I am glad to be a part of this initiative. Cardiac diseases are the No.1 cause of death. Walking and exercise play a major role in decreasing the risk factors of developing heart diseases. Not only cardiac issues but physical exercise also reduces the threat of diabetes and high blood pressure. If an individual is already a diabetic or blood pressure patient, it helps in improving blood sugar and blood pressure control. Walking promotes overall health and well-being while reducing stress, tension, depression, anxiety.”
