Abhishek Saini, Co-founder, Those In Need added, “We were really amazed to see Garima, a six year old special girl child, who fell down during the run but refused to take the short cut and completed the run with the help of her parents. This was a great source of motivation for everyone.”
The biggest success of the event was that the team could bring together everyone on an equal platform whilst keeping the competitive spirit of a race, and of winning one alive.
“We saw courage, enthusiasm and the willingness to share stories in a public format. It was encouraging to meet a young lady with Parkinson’s who was participating to spread awareness on the condition. Running or any sports event becomes a medium to interact socially which has been missing from the lives of persons with disability. We look forward to partner on the next edition.” – Madhavi Gupta, Founder, In For The Cause.
The event has set an example in the area of community sports that brought together people from all walks of life. It was the first, one of a kind inclusive, open to all sports event.
