“Your heart is the heart of your health”
- World Heart Federation
JMT has since 2001 been working in the field of combating cardiovascular disease in Nepal. Every day is a new day at JMT, where we are constantly thinking of a better and feasible idea to spread awareness amongst all segments of the society. But there is always one occasion to celebrate our love for our heart and that being the World Heart Day. This year on the occasion of the world heart day JMT conducted various activities that were fun and informative at the same time. Here at JMT, we encourage and hold events for the public in an entertaining manner to grasp their attention towards the serious cause.
Therefore, giving continuation to Tour De’ Pokhara, the cycle rally event was conducted on 24th September, 2016 with the slogan “Power your Life, Fuel your Heart”. 600 participants rode 28.3 km route to fuel their hearts. Neither age nor gender could stop these participants from completing their route. Participants from various backgrounds like military, students, teachers, government bodies, business houses and expatriates were seen. The presence of the world renowned cyclist, Mr. Pushkar Shah added a different charm. It was truly amazing to witness all the participants chanting the slogans of the World Heart Day throughout the route. The rally concluded with a positive note of keeping ones heart and the environment healthy.
The event would not have been as successful without the continued support from our partner Cycle City Pokhara, our sponsors Lomus Pharmaceutical, Nepal Laborataries Pvt. Ltd, NIC Asia Bank, Sun Pharmaceutical and the Fishtail Lodge.
