Manasije Mishra, Chief Executive, Max Bupa said, “Our research has shown that one fourth of the Indians do not exercise. At Max Bupa, our purpose is to help people live healthier and more successful lives.

Thousands of Indians had participated in Max Bupa Walk for Health last year and pledged to incorporate more walking into their daily lives. This year the initiative focused on Delhi and Mumbai, as owing to a sedentary lifestyle, people living in these metropolises are more prone to stress and lead an unhealthy life.


Max Bupa Walk for Health Survey, a recent study on the walking behaviour of people in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore has revealed that one in two people feel less stressed, one in four people feel more socially active and productive at work after walking. Special Zumba dance session and health camps were organized for the participants at the sidelines of the event.
