Organ Donation Ambassador runs a 5K marathon to create awareness on Organ Donation

Updated on Saturday, May 4, 2024
  • Hey all, I am Anant Acharya from Bengaluru. On April 28, 2024 I participated in the 5km Majja run category, which is conducted by World TCS 10k Run Bengaluru every year.


    This is my second year of my participation, I pitched the idea to run for organ donation and got accepted. This year MOHAN Foundation registered as an NGO partner for the TCS Run and we all made a sincere attempt at fundraising for their Anudaan project (Transplant recipients and donor families).


    Some highlights of this run, when morning at 6.30 am, I entered the gate and felt alone. The organisers gave me an opportunity to speak for the cause.  I interacted with a few runners, our community members and addressed the TCS runners with a message for organ donation. I felt I was privileged to interact and meet some of the great members:


    Three takeaways from my side:

    1. I registered for a custom run and gave the message for Organ Donation. (About 5k plus runners).

    2. My physical fitness goal was to complete a 5km run. ( Not the best one timing wise) But had fun with runners and meet some great runners.

    3. Post run I met some great like minded people to create an awareness on Organ donation, we interacted with several runners, metro station passengers and spread the awareness which made my day.


    I would like to give my sincere thanks to MOHAN Foundation’s Hemal mam, Jaya mam, Padma and Ranjani mam for supporting my idea and helping me on this.


     Special thanks to:

    1. Nursing students (10) girls for joining physically and promoting organ donation.

    2. Surya for helping with all logistics from yesterday.

    3. Organ Donation Ambassadors Farzana, Satapdi, Aryana, Basavraj, Deepak for making your special presence on the request.
