In a remarkable display of unity and environmental consciousness, residents from more than 1000+ high rise premium societies of Noida participated in a walkathon and tree plantation drive organized by ICARE Eye Hospital, Sector-26, Noida, in partnership with Apartment Times, the leading newsletter of Gautam Buddha Nagar in association with NOFAA (Noida Federation of Apartment Owners Associations) & NEFOWA (New Era Flat Owners Welfare Association). This event, held to commemorate India’s 76th Independence Day, aimed to raise awareness about the urgent need to combat global warming and protect our environment.
Adding to the prestige of the event was the presence of Param Veer Chakra awardee Capt. Yogendra Yadav. Capt. Yadav, a retired commissioned officer from the Indian Army, earned the esteemed Param Veer Chakra, the highest wartime gallantry award in India, for his valorous actions during the Kargil War. He is the youngest recipient of PVC, having received it at the age of 19. Renowned RJ Divya from Radio City also graced the occasion.
Commenting on the event, Param Veer Chakra Capt. Yadav stated, “This event brought together the spirit of unity and the urgency of environmental conservation. Every step we take in this walkathon and every tree we plant is a testament to our commitment to a better future for ourselves and our planet. Let us continue to stand together, not only to remember our nation’s Independence but also to safeguard the world we share. Each small action can create a ripple of positive change, and I am confident that together, we can make a difference. My heartfelt gratitude to ICARE Eye Hospital and Apartment Times for orchestrating this impactful event.”
“Being part of this walkathon and tree plantation drive has been an incredibly fulfilling experience. It’s heartening to witness our community coming together for a cause that transcends boundaries – our environment. As we take each step and plant each tree, we sow the seeds of a greener and healthier future. Let’s keep nurturing not only the saplings but also the spirit of unity and responsibility. Together, we’re amplifying the message that positive change begins with us, right here and right now.” Said RJ Divya, Radio City.
“The unity displayed by our community in this walkathon and tree plantation drive is truly commendable. Our steps taken today echo our commitment to a healthier planet and a stronger community. Just as we care for the vision of our patients, we also care for the Earth’s vision – a greener, sustainable future. This event is a testament to our collective dedication towards environmental consciousness and serves as a reminder that even small actions can create significant positive impacts.” Said, Dr. Saurabh Choudhry, CEO, ICARE Eye Hospital, Sector-26, Noida.
The 2.5-kilometer walkathon, themed ‘Walk for Unity,’ witnessed the participation of more than 1000 high-rise building residents from various parts of Noida. The highlight of the event was the collective tree plantation drive, where residents planted saplings along the 2.5-kilometer stretch of the walkathon route. This initiative aimed to make the local environment greener and contribute positively to the fight against climate change. The event also featured a captivating live performance by the Delhi Public School – Gautam Buddha Nagar’s band, adding an artistic flair to the morning’s proceedings. The event not only served as a tribute to the upcoming Independence Day celebrations but also highlighted the critical issue of global warming that affects us all.
The walkathon, spanning 2.5 kilometers, commenced at 5:30 am from Parsvnath Prestige in Sector-93, Noida, and concluded at DPS School in Sector 132, Noida.
