Sunrise hospital, one of the top multi-specialty hospitals in South India, an organization that does sterling work in ‘Laparoscopic and Endoscopic Surgeries’ is prodding the public to run for a cause through their campaign ‘Sunrise Green Run’. The campaign is mainly centered on saving planet earth insinuating the essentiality of protecting its very ‘Green’. The earth is losing all its green due to industrialization, urbanization and modernization, thereby generating more than a dozen environmental issues at a very alarming rate. Modernization is a desirable change, only when ‘protecting the environment’ is a properly taken care of. People turned totally blind on the depleting health of the nature. However, through revolution (like Green revolution) and awareness programs (like seminars by experts, marathons etc.) and after assiduous efforts, people are now becoming more conscious towards conserving planet Earth.
Sunrise is prompting the public to take agile actions on this matter by joining our awareness program “Sunrise Green Run’. Apart from exploring your spryness, ‘Sunrise Green Run’ is also a program to publicize the need for a change – a GREEN change- that in the current scenario is the most desirable for the environment.
In India, there has been recent event that drew wide attention-nationally and globally, when the country awarded a deserving environmentalist with ‘Padma Shri’. Saalumarada Thimmakka , 106 year old mother from Karnataka who dedicated her 65 years for planting 8000 trees. The contribution that Ms. Thimmakka made was a selfless act she set and inspired us to follow. Through explicit campaigns like ‘Sunrise Green Run’, we are urging everyone to do such actions to protect our environment for a noble cause. We also hope that it is only fair to understand that protecting the environment is a selfless act and is entitled upon each one of us to perform.
Sunrise is expecting the public to get inspired by volunteering an event like ‘Sunrise Green Run’ and is hoping that people would understand that protecting the environment starts with one-self. Sunrise is implicating possibilities that can start with us like:
Environmental change is real and happening, and if the ignorance towards this persists, the aftermath is going to be highly disastrous to mankind. Global Warming, Ozone layer depletion, waste disposal, water pollution, climate change and many more will affect every human, animal and nation on this planet. All these issues have necessitated the need for agencies like United Nations Environment Programme and international environmental agreements like Kyoto protocol.
Let us not take this planet for granted. Bring the change by joining us in the planet saving campaign ‘Sunrise Green Run’. As Dr. Thomas Fuller said, “He that plants trees loves others besides himself.”
