Galati Half Marathon was the first sports event attended by #TeamMotivation this year, after a break caused by the pandemic. On this occasion, 113 runners, people with and without disabilities, joined Motivation to support us to give back freedom of movement to people with mobility disabilities. Thanks to them, as well as to the donors who supported our cause, to the #TeamMotivation ambassadors and to all those who spread the news, we raised the funds to donate 15 appropriate wheelchairs and to change as many lives for the better for people in Galati and Braila counties. #TeamMotivation will continue to promote the abilities and the rights of wheelchair users, for their inclusion and to increase social cohesion.
The mobility equipment will be donated by the regional team in Galati, after the functional wheelchair assessments and social inquiries conducted by our colleagues. The wheelchairs will be prescribed according to the needs and abilities of the users, according to the recommendations made by the World Health Organization.
Galați Half Marathon took place on June 6th and it was organized by the Community Foundation in Galați. Semimaraton Galați 2021 a avut loc pe 6 iunie și a fost organizat de Fundația Comunitară Galați. To see more pictures taken at the event, click here.
