The Pune Running Beyond Myself is Pune’s largest marathon and ABBF is their disability partner. The 2017 edition was a grand success as we had 36 Persons with Disability experience the joy of running in an inclusive event, along with their able-bodied allies. They worked well together as a team and encouraged each other to complete the marathon.
The event was a grand success. Tanya conducted the Orientation at Sambhaji Park on the day before the marathon for the allies. We had partnered with TTI and Sarthak to get PWD runners. The runners had a great time, and we also got enough time on stage. We got spotted by some corporates who reached out to us (Capco) after the marathon for partnerships. T shirts were a disaster and the ABBF logo was not very visible. It was a good idea to have so many photographers. We had reached out to Symbiosis photography school. Although we did not have a great experience with Manish from Symbiosis. The video made after the event was not very exciting. Photographs came out very well. There were enough TTA volunteers to help out.
