Humanity from ages is looking forward for eternal peace, so that happiness blossoms all over the prosperous world. All efforts being made all over the World became in vain and left as a mirage.
WALKERS MOVEMENT :
But the thought of Global Organization for peace on earth and prosperity for all continued to haunt us. We have been habitual Walkers relentlessly pursuing the pleasure of a stroll at dawn, in the twilight hours on the Silver Sands of Coast breathing the sweet smell of the morning mist taking the lungful of Oxygen and wondering at the beautiful sight of raising Sun. Soon we realized that simple regular brisk walk keeps one in good health. A healthy man is a happy man and a happy man is at peace with himself and others. A healthy nation is a happy nation and happy nation will be at peace with itself and the rest of the world bringing eternal peace and abundant prosperity Father of our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, is our Margadarsi.

1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity to promote habitual walking.
2. To encourage balanced diet.
3. To preserve ecology.
4. To promote universal brotherhood.
5. To maintain high ethical standards.

To simply put it to bring all like minded people under one umbrella and to develop “FRIENDSHIP, FELLOWSHIP & LEADERSHIP WITH SERVICE & HEALTH” as motive and to spread the message ‘HEALTH IS WEALTH, WALK YOUR WAY TO HEALTH”.
