MSSI Hyderabad chapter organised the MS walk on 4th February to celebrate India MS Day at the Parade Grounds in the heart of Secunderabad.
Ms. Basa Nagmani, renowned long distance runner and Asian games Gold Medalist, flagged off the walk and was felicitated by our chairperson.
Dr. Rebecca Varghese, a PwMS and an emergency physician was felicitated by our charter chairperson, for her various achievements in beauty pageants.
The participants included most of our PwMS with their friends, caregivers and children, office bearers, life members, guests, TV 1 and TV 9 team, athletes from Ms. Nagamani’s training school and the morning walkers around.
The walk drew publicity with TV channels like TV1 and TV9, newspapers like The Hindu and the local daily Telangana Today covering the programme which helped to bring focus on MS.
The highlight of the programme was two persons with MS who were on their daily morning walk registered with the society and a guest registered as a life member.
Hyderabad chapter thanks Mr. R.K. Nair, MD of Soma Block Prints, Jaipur, for sponsoring this event which was a grand success.
