Every year, 5 lakh Indians lose their lives waiting for organs. With less than 500 Cadaveric donations (organ donations from a deceased donor) taking place last year, India has an Organ Donation rate of 0.5 person/ 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 the loss of lives that happen for want of organs. ‘NDTV Fortis More to Give Walkathon – A step towards organ donation’ is one such initiative that hopes to mobilise the nation in this direction. The Walkathon aims to inform people about the need and importance of Organ Donation. The registration for the Walkathon 2018 is now open. 

This year the Walkathon will be held on November 25, 2018 from 7.30am (IST) in 7 cities. Click below to register for the Walkathon in your city.
