The Indian Organ Donation Day on 27th November started on an enthusiastic note as Prof. SubhashVarma, Director PGIMER flagged off a walkathon as chief guest amid loud cheers. The Walkathon by NDTV and Fortis was organized collaboration with ROTTO PGIMER at Fortis Mohali. The Director was accompanied by Prof A.K. Gupta, MS and Dr. VipinKoushal, Nodal Officer, ROTTO on the occasion.
Leveraging on the success of earlier engagement sessions, ROTTO also organised students from various schools and colleges, NGOs and security personnel from PGIMER to participate in the walkathon. Holding colourful placards with sensitive portrayal and messages to promote organ donation and shouting slogans, the energy of the participants was quite contagious. The walkathon was hugely successful and was telecast by all the channels of NDTV.
