Freedom 2 Walk Challenge: for City Leaders

Surat is a city full of fitness enthusiasts. As a reach-out effort, Surat Municipal Corporation has implied many infrastructural development programs to adopt with the Fit India movement. From constructing multipurpose Mega Jogging Parks as part of Canal Redevelopment Project in Vesu & Adajan areas to successfully running cycle rental projects through Charter Bike App across the city, SMC has left no stone unturned to ensure a fit Surat. Surat had already provided a separate cycling corridor on many major roads of the city, providing additional safety to our city's cycling enthusiasts.

During the last few months as part of 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav', the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MOHUA) organized a successful nationwide campaign titled "Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav- Freedom 2 Walk & Cycle" on October 1st, 2nd & 3rd, 2021. The events ranged from activities to empower women and children to walk and cycle, to bring more pedestrians and cyclists to the streets, testing temporary interventions, and more. Thanks to the Smart Cities & their active participation, over 220+ events were hosted to promote walking and cycling across the nation.

This year with the intent to make the leaders i.e. Commissioners, Additional/Joint/Deputy Commissioner, Smart City CEOs, Key SPV Officials, as walking and cycling champions in each city, it has been decided to launch a challenge titled "Freedom 2 Walk & Cycle Campaign for City Leaders" from January 1 to January 26, 2022, as pre-event to the "Smart Cities-Smart Urbanisation" conference scheduled to be held in Surat tentatively in the first week of February 2022.

Surat has nominated its 5 ULB/SPV officials and community leaders for this challenge & the team of these 5 members have registered their kms walked/cycled from 01st January to 26th January 2022. Now it's your chance to participate in this month-long fitness marathon. The participants will be required to track their walking & cycling activities daily on Strava App and share their experiences on a common communication platform. The total kilometres logged by each city's team will determine the winner. The challenge will culminate by honouring cities with maximum kilometres logged, and teams of the winning city/cities will be felicitated at the "Smart Cities-Smart Urbanisation" conference.

So Surat, get your jogging shoes ready for the Fit India Event of the season & help Surat win by logging in the maximum number of kilometres by registering & tracking your running & cycling activities. For registration & further information visit www.mysurat.in web portal today!
