The Walkathon organized in Dadar Mumbai today witnessed the participation of about 2000 people from all age groups and from all walks of life. The participants citing slogans and carrying placards exhibited the messages to create further awareness about the grave situation of climate change and its impact on our lives.

Commenting on the initiative of the Walkathon to create community awareness, Mr. Nishant Deshmukh, Founder & Managing Partner, of the Sugee Group said, “We all have been facing the erratic climate change situations, be it unseasonal rains, rising temperatures, rising sea levels, extinction of species, melting of glaciers and so on. Our Planet’s climate is deteriorating and the results are visible to everyone. It is better to acknowledge and act today than tomorrow, as the peril is on the anvil. Being a sensitive organization to the environment, we have supported this initiative of Walkathon to sensitize people so that each one of us could do our bit to reduce the carbon footprint, as one of the measures to mitigate the impact of climate change.”
