WALK-A-THON TESTIMONIALS

Sridhar Ranganathan

I want to place my appreciation on behalf of ALLERGAN to every member of the Samarthanam group for their sedulous efforts and doing it with tremendous fervour………..while there are many things people can think of doing on a Saturday afternoon it was so touching to see people coming in large numbers to represent a cause like this. It outlines the efforts put in by your team and reaching out to every nook and corner of the city. We are proud of our association in this event and we look forward to seeing Samarthanam grow even bigger and reach out to many and create a huge impact in the society.

SRIDHAR RANGANATHAN • MANAGING DIRECTOR, ALLERGAN INDIA

I have great admiration for the city of Bengaluru and I am glad to be a part of an event which is directed towards saving the greenery of the city. Samarthanam Walkathon’s motive is ideal and inspirational. It is to raise awareness on the importance of our environment and I have a high regard for the initiative. The organization’s efforts are appreciable and I strongly believe that we all should adopt greener ways of life and also encourage people around to follow the same. It would not only make the city greener but also reduce on the other environmental concerns as well.

UPENDRA, ACTOR, FILM MAKER & BRAND AMBASSADOR FOR WALKATHON 2017

Being concerned about nature is a very good intention. It is mother earth which is going to protect us and our future generations. Samarthanam has organized an event for protecting the environment and I am happy to be the Guest of Honor. It gives me great pleasure to be a part of the event concerning the city’s greenery and it is great to see that many people have come forward to be a part of Walkathon 2017. It signifies that people are
eco-conscious and that is excellent.
