Satya Students Part of World Record

April 8, 2022

Our students were part of history, as they participated in the world record as part of Special Olympics Bharat’s Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav initiative by the Government of India.

They participated in the health screening, as well as in the world record attempt of running in one place continuously for one minute. While our students are regularly given health and dental screening, being part of a large festival was very exciting for them.

On April 7, on the occasion of World Health Day, Special Olympics Bharat organized a mega health screening camp, with free health screening of a total of over 90000 athletes with intellectual disabilities (exceeding the target of 75000), in over 75 cities of India to mark 75 years of India’s independence. The screenings were conducted by 7075 clinical volunteers, across 139 locations in 31 States, through an overwhelming support received at the National and local levels by the Government bodies, corporates and communities.

The guests of honour for the Pondicherry event included Mr. Udayakumar, Secretary, Welfare, Govt of Puducherry; Mr. N. Sivacoumar, Deputy Director, Sports & Youth Service; Mr. N. Dinakar, State Project Director, Samagra Shiksha; Ms Kalavathi, Dy Director, Dept of Welfare, Govt of Puducherry; and Mr Mukesh Jain, President, BNI. Dr. M. S. Nagarajan, Regional Sports Advisor, Special Olympics Bharat- New Delhi; and Dr. Ragothaman, President, SOB Puducherry also participated in the event.
