Rotary Walkathon 2016 organized by Rotary Club of Calcutta Old City at Vivekananda Park saw the participation of eminent dignitaries like actor Rituparna Sengupta, Chess Grandmaster Dibyendu Barua and other celebs like Om, Moinak Banerjee, Suchandra Bhania, Arpita, Satrajit Sen, Sudarshan, Tromvok and Raaj Bhattacharya.
Cancer Awareness, Child Heart Disease Awareness, Hand wash Awareness, Thalassemia Awareness and Eradicate Illiteracy were the five issues for which this walkathon was organized.
Around 5000 people participated in the walkathon which started from Vivekananda Park and covered a total of five kilometers.
“I am glad to be able to come to this event organized by The Rotary Club of Calcutta Old City. The Rotary Club has always been engaged in such social activities. And the five reasons for which they have undertaken this walk is very important in today’s time. People are affected more from lack of awareness than from lack of treatment. Hence, this is a great initiative” said actress Rituparna Sengupta.
We hope that The Rotary Club continues with their social activities in future so that the lives of many people can be improved!!
