CARE Surat Lauded for Marathon Support

CARE Hospitals, Surat was the medical partner for the third Daman Wind Marathon held on December 20, organized by the Daman administration and World Wind India Ltd. Around 2000 runners registered for the event, including well-known names like Mr Piyush Shah (100 km runner), Mr Lalit Periwal (7000 km in 18 months), Ms Roshni Rai (100 km Ultra Marathon Prize winner), Mr Amarjeet Singh (visually impaired) running his 43rd marathon, Ms Kavita Rout (Arjuna Award winner) and Mr Satish Gurjar, fastest Indian for 6 years. CARE organized a pre marathon fitness camp to educate the runners, who came from Daman, Vapi, Valsad and Silvassa. It set up first aid posts, a Recovery Centre and deployed two ambulances — one of them a cardiac ambulance with Dr Ankur Thummar, Cardiologist. A total of 32 associates from CARE were involved in the event.

Mr Girish Paliwal, Vice President, World Wind India Ltd. was very appreciative, saying, “CARE Hospitals team gave fantastic support on the medical front for the race — right from pre event health check-up and fitness check to final recovery centre. Now the people of Daman and around know CARE Hospitals. The support was important for the confidence of the runners and us, the organisers.”
