Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF) is a not-for-profit, based out of Pune, that promotes inclusivity.
Through adventure and outdoor sport initiatives, ABBF provides visibility for Persons with Disability (PwD) and strives to shatter social stereotypes. The organization believes that as a society we need to promote an environment of openness, sensitivity, and empathy towards PwDs. Currently ABBF’s initiatives include marathons, tandem cycling, scuba diving, paragliding, and mountaineering.
We want to start 'em young and introduce the kids to the concept of inclusion, of celebrating differences. Children are naturally inquisitive, and if they see a wheelchair user or someone who is visibly disabled in some way, they’re going to be curious. Shushing children only reinforces the idea that disability is a taboo subject that is shameful and not to be talked about.
Sport is one way of breaking the taboo around disability and nothing better than a fun run to bring kids with and without disability together. It will help children find common ground and ways to interact with one another as friends.
The run is happening in 3 distances and is open for kids with and without disability along with a chance for a parent to run with the kids as well. Children from the age group of 6 to 16 years have the opportunity to run any one of the 4 race categories. Come, participate and lead the way in showing them true inclusion.
Parents mandatorily need to run along with kids who are below 7 years of age. Please read Terms & Conditions and waiver form by clicking the "Terms and Conditions" button below.
