On the occasion of Road Safety Week (11th Jan’15 – 17th Jan’15) and 65th Republic Day, We organized Safety Torch Run, a 65 km relay run with flame of light torch by individuals, who follow road safety rules on daily life, through critical spots of Chennai to spread road safety message to people on 11th jan 2015
The event started with road safety themed flash mob by Nanda & team from TCS. At 6 AM, the safety torch was lit by Mrs. Seetha Lakshmi, Physical Education Director and the run was kick started by Social Activist Mr. Jahir Hussain.
The flame travelled across 23 major junctions who were cheered by open public at all places. 65 individuals participated in the run (One person/km) and 150+ volunteers cheered them at various junctions throughout the run.
Then the flame reached the end point in Ashok Pillar around 4 PM and was received by the Chief Guest Mr.Gandhian Kalyanji who worked as personal secretary to Mahatma Gandhi. Then all of us took pledge along with him to make our country an Accident Free Nation. Our Model Signal animation video was also released by him at the end of the event and the proposal was handed over to the Chennai City Traffic Police which was a great honor to us.
