159 lives changed for the better by #TeamMotivation at Raifeissen Bank Bucharest Marathon 2018

154 of our friends ran more than 1500 km (1582 km and 528 m) in #TeamMotivation at Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest Marathon in 2018!
They all had the same purpose, to five back the mobility of people with disabilities! We aimed at raising funds in the Wheelchair Fund, which allows us to donate appropriate mobility equipment and to help people break isolation.

The efforts of our runners and fundraisers helped us raise 60.740 RON, amount which allows us to donate 130 wheelchairs. 29 other wheelchairs are added to this number, as a result of the efforts made by our friends at Decathlon.

A total of 159 lives changed for the better with the support of #TeamMotivation.

At this end of this year’s edition of Bucharest Marathon, we are grateful to everyone who ran, donated, volunteered and shared the good news about #TeamMotivation.

We invite other friends to join us for inclusive sports events, including running, cycling, swimming or other sports events. We look at abilities and we are happy each time when the wheelchair athletes start a competition along with other people without disabilities, who are passionate with sports.

This year, 23 wheelchair users participated in Bucharest Marathon. If you are interested in joining #TeamMotivation, write us at comunicare@motivation.ro.
