We are delighted to announce that ALERTATHON, the signature walking/running and cycling event from ALERT, returns this year for its 8th edition. We take pride in having ALERTATHON as the world’s only endurance event to Save Lives.
Marching steadily towards the goal set for ALERT by the legendary former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, “to train one in every family in emergency response”, for the past 16 years, ALERT has trained over 1,80,000 common people as first-responders through various initiatives reaching out to audiences from all walks of life, in India.
With a focus on connecting our cause with endurance-loving people like you, the 8th edition of ALERTATHON 2022 is back. During the pandemic, our marathon went entirely virtual. We reached the whole world’s audience to bring focus to learning the essential life-saving skills that ALERT champions. Thanks to the incredible support we received since the first edition of ALERTATHON, we have hosted over 13000 participants, including a cumulative turnout of almost 6000 participants only during the last two editions of ALERTATHON.
After bidding the pandemic goodbye, we bring in more flavors to ALERTATHON and more opportunities to support our cause this year. We are delighted to bring ALERTATHON to Coimbatore, in partnership with the District Collector, CODISSIA and PSG hospitals, to expand our reach to train more people in this region.
