Aster Volunteers ‘Heart2Heart Cares 2023’ – Campaign is aimed at raising awareness among residents about heart health.Thu 26 Oct 2023
Dubai: Walking is perhaps the easiest way to maintain good heart health. In addition to reducing the risk of heart ailments, walking for an average of 30 minutes every day can help relieve stress and improve your heart health.
‘Heart2Heart Cares 2023’ is not limited to walking; participants can engage in fitness programs, including walking 10,000 steps, cycling 10 km (in 90 mins), and burning 400 calories (in 90 mins) as part of a month-long Heart to Heart Cares campaign.
With the third edition of Aster Volunteers’ ‘Heart2Heart Cares 2023’ CSR initiative, Aster DM Healthcare brings you the perfect opportunity where your 10,000 steps a day can help an underprivileged child receive life-saving heart surgery, literally!
The last two editions, launched on World Heart Day in 2021 and 2022, witnessed significant participation from India and GCC, resulting in over 8,750 participants, 331 million eligible steps, and a total contribution of INR 4.05 million towards the cause. This year, the initiative aims to encourage more people to walk for their heart health while also providing them with a greater cause of saving the lives of 50 underprivileged children in need of heart surgery.
To contribute this year, participants will need to register at heart2heart.astervolunteers.com to get started, record their steps on their gadgets/smartphones, log into timetrack.astervolunteers.com, and upload their step count in the form of screenshots. This process shall enable registered participants to earn volunteering hours and online volunteering certificates for their engagement.
Twenty lucky participants in the UAE will be selected to receive exciting gifts during the closing event on October 29, 2023, at Zabeel Park.
In addition to the above, there will be a first, second, and third special prize for participants in both the male and female categories who complete the highest eligible steps on October 29, 2023.
