Wellington Gymkhana Club (WGC) with the help of Defence Services Staff College (DSSC) organised ‘Nilgiri Eco Run’ to drive home the message ‘Keep Clean – Go Green’ on April 10, 2015. The hilly district near Coonoor came alive with over 1,000 people turning up for the run to espouse the cause of environment, making it the largest eco-run in the country. The run promoting the idea of eco-friendly practices with a fitness perspective was led by Lt Gen Gadeock, AVSM, Commandant.
WGC has been standing for the protection of the environment and preservation of wildlife with special concern over the impact of irresponsible tourism on the fragile ecology of the Nilgiris.
