Leading Odia daily ‘Sambad’ played host to a cyclothon on Sunday ahead of the World Heart Day being observed on Tuesday (Sep 29).


Participants from across various walks of life and age groups participated in the event held in Bhubaneswar along with hundreds of students of various schools and the ‘We Ride Bicycle Organisation’. The 12km distance was covered in about an hour. The cyclothon was held in association with Solid HD Cement.


Speaking on the occasion, Chief Guest and State Health Minister Atanu Sabyasachi Nayak highlighted the need of a healthy heart. “It is better to be fit enough than being sick and a burden on someone else. One needs a healthy heart for a healthy mind and for a healthy heart, exercise is extremely important,” he said.


While Managing Director of Eastern Media Monica Nayar Patnaik presented the welcome address, Executive Director Tanaya Patnaik presented the vote of thanks.
