“Run for Diabetes Awareness 2015” Campaign to be Held in the National Capital

On October 25th, doctors from different parts of Delhi will run in a marathon to raise awareness about diabetes. The marathon is being held by medical networking app Curofy.

"Of all the doctors, around 70 percent will finally be participating. This way, we are also trying to fulfill our corporate social responsibility goals," said Mudit Vijayvergiya, one of the co-founders of Curofy.


The campaign is being organized in partnership with Hope and Helping Hands Society and Noida Running Group. Run for Diabetes Awareness 2015 will be held on Sunday (October 25) between 6 a.m to 11 a.m. at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. It includes Half Marathon, 11 km and 6 k.m. and walk for diabetes awareness.

According to the popular doctors' networking app, Curofy, it has received tremendous response from doctors to enroll themselves in the campaign. Curofy is a medical networking app that powers spam-free and secure communication between doctors.

"Doctors have an extremely busy schedule and while caring for their patients they often forget to take care of their own health. This gives them a chance to do that," said S. K. Mittal, a doctor.

Race director and former Indian marathon runner, Dr. Sunita Godara, said, "I find this marathon a great opportunity for the runners to get accurate time record and pace them to do their best in the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon just after a month".
