Health awareness programme for Commonwealth Games begins

The Chairman of the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (CGOC), Suresh Kalmadi, on Thursday flagged off the 10th Perfect Health Parade to promote a clean, green and hygienic city for Commonwealth Games.


New Delhi, Apr 8 : The Chairman of the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (CGOC), Suresh Kalmadi, on Thursday flagged off the 10th Perfect Health Parade to promote a clean, green and hygienic city for Commonwealth Games.

The parade concentrated on sensitizing doctors about traveler-related sicknesses and their prevention and cure.

"At least one lakh people will come for Commonwealth games and their health must be looked after so I am very happy that doctors have taken the lead," Kalmadi said. We have also agreed to take quite a few of the widows in the volunteer programmes of Games so that all sections of the society should be part of the Games. Without the citizens' involvement we can't have great games," he added.

He also believes that the successful staging of the Commonwealth Games is vital since this would strengthen the prospects for India to host the Olympics.

The parade rolled out a special tableau and mascot of the Games on a vehicle with northeastern folk songs and dances.

The Commonwealth Games 2010 are scheduled to be held here between October 3 and October 14.

The games will be the largest multi-sport event conducted to date in India, which had previously hosted the Asian Games in 1951 and 1982. It will also be the second time that the event will be held in Asia after 1998 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
