Every year, 4 lakh Indians lose their lives waiting for organs. With less than 1000 cadaveric donations (organ donations from a deceased donor) taking place last year, India has an Organ Donation rate of 0.8 person per million individuals, one of the lowest in the world. In a nation of over a billion people, there’s not even 1 organ donor in a million.

NDTV and Fortis Healthcare have taken up the cause of creating awareness around this cause. ‘NDTV Fortis More to Give Walkathon – A step towards organ donation’ is one such initiative that aimed at mobilising the nation in this direction. The Walkathon is organised every year around the National Organ Donation Day on November 27 aims to inform people about the need and importance of Organ Donation.

This year the Walkathon is being held on November 25, 2018 in 7 cities. The registration for the Walkathon 2018 is now closed.
