Such a marathon is very much needed to dispel them,” Sarang added. Mayor Malti Rai said, “It is challenge before all of us to raise awareness about organ donation, which has to be promoted at any cost.” The objective of marathon was to make people understand that thousands of lives can be saved through donation of organs like kidney, liver, heart, tissues, and bone marrow.
