Here are the few highlights of the event:
At our Motivational Zone we had disabled people performing various dances, stunts, mimicry and songs to portray that their disability is not a barrier. Their determined spirit and high energy inspired many onlookers and attracted swarms of crowds to our zone.
We also had a live band who sung motivational songs to cheer the runners.
The other attraction of our zone was the selfie booth where people could click and print their photo as a memento from our zone.
They could also click photos with a life sized Jaipur Foot that portrayed the magnanimity of our cause.
Many dream runners from other NGOs and corporate runners also stopped by and cheered us.
3 of our beneficiaries successfully completed “Champions with Disability” race of 2 KM.
The main purpose of the Motivational Zone is to provide motivation to hundreds and thousands of Marathoners by cheering them and playing inspirational songs, performing dances etc.
But for an NGO it is a smartly devised platform where an NGO can build maximum awareness of their cause amongst around 40,000 runners who take part in the Marathon.
Apart from the awareness generated, NGOs also stand a chance to win a cash prize as a donation to forward their cause and transform many more lives.
The NGO with the best portrayal of their cause and crowd engagement has higher chances of winning.
The onlookers gazed in awe at the inspirational & motivational performance given by the disabled people. The message to the onlookers was loud and clear that "We are differently abled and not disabled"
Huge crowd gathered at our zone cheering the performers, taking their videos and photos and enjoying the festivities of that day.
Volunteers from the NGO "Save the Children" come up on stage and cheer up the performers and onlookers by dancing with them.
Keeping up with the race day spirit even Senior Citizen group stopped by our zone and cheered the disabled singer by singing and dancing with them
