Bangalore (Karnataka) [India], February 10: This World Cancer Day, the world’s biggest tech company, BYJU’S, joined forces with Sparsh Hospital in Bangalore to support its 5K walkathon. BYJU’S volunteers came together as part of the “Close the Care Gap” campaign, raising awareness and providing support for those affected by cancer.
A yoga and gymnastics performance by talented young performers was the highlight of an inspiring day, which emphasized the importance of staying active at any age. Speeches by medical practitioners inspired all who attended and raised awareness about the importance of early detection and healthy living. By educating the public on the importance of early detection, this campaign empowers people to take charge of their health and seek out information about how they can reduce their risk of cancer. This is an important step toward reducing the incidence rate of this disease.
With more than 1000 people participating, the 5K walkathon was a clear demonstration of community strength and people coming together for change. The walk started in Sparsh Hospital, took participants through the streets of Rajarajeshwari Nagar, and then culminated in a celebration—a triumph for health and hope. The most important takeaway from this event was that it gave the community a chance to celebrate the efforts against cancer and also to come together for a cause. It was not only about raising awareness but also about creating an environment where people can feel connected and empowered. In this case, who fostered these connections through athletics, gymnastics, entertainment and fun activities for both adults and children?
This event also shows that community-based initiatives are a great way to promote health and well-being. These events are important because they allow individuals in the community to come together, share experiences and ideas, find support and strength in numbers, and ultimately feel empowered.
World Cancer Day is more than just a mark on the calendar, especially in today’s world. This year’s theme highlighted the gaps in accessing quality care across the globe, especially in many communities in developing countries. With an emphasis on reducing the stigma of illness and highlighting the perspectives of the people living with cancer, this campaign is a step forward in empowering people to manage living with cancer.
Speaking at the event, Vaidehiballal M, HR Specialist, said, “It is in moments like these that we see the power of support and the true harmony of a community. The speeches that who gave have taught me so much, and I am grateful to have been a part of this event!”
Safuwan M, Lead – content development, also added, “We often neglect our health until it’s too late, so this event was a great reminder to value what is important. This walkathon is an excellent way to bring awareness to the issues that truly matter.”
