Gachibowli: Save the Young Heart Foundation elicited a good response from the city to the third edition of its 5K Run on Sunday to celebrate 'World Heart Day.' It claimed around 2,500 people took part in the run at Gachibowli stadium.
Ch Malla Reddy, Minister of Labour, Employment and Factories Skill of Development, Dil Raju, film producer, G Ranjith Reddy, MP, Arekapudi Gandhi, MLA, attended the run. On the occasion, the guests launched the 'Save The Young Heart' app. On filling up the self assessment questionnaire the user will get updated about his risk of getting heart disease. Also Save the Young Heart Foundation will organise heart wellness programmes.
Dr Anand Agarwal, Senior Cardiac Surgeon, Founder of the Campaign, said "Heart disease is increasing in younger generation with a significant risk in both males and females. More and more number of young Indians are suffering from coronary artery disease, owing to their poor lifestyle, and if this continues the future looks even more dangerous.
Ten years back, we at Malla Reddy Narayana Multispeciality Hospitals hardly saw any young patients with heart attack but now, we get many cases in the 25-35 age group with heart attack in our emergency."
