#TeamMotivation ran 231 km at the International Cluj Napoca Marathon, on April 15 2018. The purpose of the 27 runners with and without mobility disabilities was to raise the necessary amount for the participation of 3 wheelchair users in an active rehabilitation camp.
The donations raised by our team members were of 8.410 RON and our friends from Deltamed joined us with a 2000 RON sponsorship. The amount covered the participation of 3 wheelchair users in the active rehabilitation camp held at Băile Felix, Bihor County, between 11 and 15 June 2018.
Paul (22 years old, from Turda), Luiza (26 years old, from Cluj-Napoca) and Petru (31 years old, from Bistrita Nasaud county) had the occasion to learn how to handle the challenges of life as a wheelchair user. They discussed more with our colleagues about the prevention of medical complications and about the rights of people with disabilities. Also, they practised wheelchair handling techniques: overcoming obstacles, going up and down the ramps, wheelchair transfers. Moreover, they improved their independent living skills and made new friends.
Thank you to all our friends who joined our project by running, donating and sharing the good news!
