Technopark, one of the largest IT Parks in the country, will host a series of programmes on December 1—observed as the World AIDS Day—to spread awareness on HIV/AIDS.
Backed by Lords Hospital and mobD—a unique platform that provides quality healthcare at home— the day-long event named ‘Go RED’ will include a mass blood donation camp, flash drama, walkathon, and fun-filled activities to promote healthy lifestyles.
“With the support of various employee associations in Technopark, we hope to make this event one of the largest AIDS-day observance programmes held in the city,” said Technopark CEO K. G. Girish Babu.
On December 1, every inmate of the park will wear a red ribbon as a mark of solidarity with people living with HIV/AIDS. The blood donation camp conducted with the help of a unit from General Hospital will start at 9.30 a.m. at the Exhibition Hall in Park Centre. Blood-donation registration desks for a large database collection would be functional in all major park buildings.
The walkathon to be held within the campus will start at 3.30 p.m. Following the culmination of the walkathon at the amphitheatre, a 30-minute-long flash drama will be performed by Technopark employees. The drama will be based on the theme of world AIDS day—‘Getting to Zero – Zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.’ All employees will also take a pledge to spread awareness on HIV AIDS. The event will be wrapped up with the release of 1,000 red hydrogen balloons.
mobD, the official partner of the event will conduct fun-filled interactive games exclusively for CEOs and HR heads, a lucky draw, and an awareness programme on healthy lifestyle.
Technopark has also kickstarted a poster designing contest on World AIDS Day theme for all park employees on its Facebook page. Winners of the contest will be announced on the event day via www.facebook.com/TechnoparkOfficial.
