From July 2016, Sahaya will start a special campaign "Be Safe! Be there to save". Through this campaign Sahaya, in partnership with ALERT - A Non-Government Organization, will build awareness to adults and youth (above 14 years) on the aspects of first-aid and lifesaving skills (Be Safe!). As it is said and believed, Safety begins at home and every family must be aware of the aspect of being safe, take preventive care in avoiding accidents and be educated about how to respond should it occur (Be there to Save!); be it at home, in the road, at school or at the workplace.
Kannan (Kay) Sundararajan, being a running enthusiast, will attempt to run a full marathon distance of 42 kms every weekend for 42 consecutive weeks in 42 different places in Bangalore and other cities to build awareness to motorists, pedestrians and general public. During the campaign Orange and Yellow safety pledge cards (goal is to distribute 50,000 cards within the 42 weeks) will be distributed.
