With your help, Crystal Castle sponsored the second Kathmandu wheelchair marathon, to highlight the issues of treatment of other-abled people in Nepal.
Organised by Bodhisattvas in Action (BIA), one of the wonderful charitable foundations regularly supported by us, the nearly 200 marathon participants covered an impressive distance of 4.5 kilometres in their wheelchairs.
“This marathon is aimed towards encouraging the sports interests of people with disabilities while also making the general public witness the enthusiasm and capabilities of the so-called disabled people.” said BIA.
The keen competitors had great fun, challenged themselves and for the really fast contestants, won some cash prizes.
