Streets of Mumbai were really brimming with joy & it looked so festive. More than 200 NGOs had participated in marathon to showcase their noble cause.
We also participated with our heartfelt cause of "Make Mumbai Disability Free". We had a Great Dhamaal in Dream Run. We were shouting the slogans of:
1) Make Mumbai Disability Free
2) We love Jaipur Foot
3) Walk & Run...walk & run...
We were also carrying creative banners / placards. We had following number of people supporting & runnning for our cause:
Half Marathon - 6
Full Marathon - 1
10K Run - 1
Dream Run - 77
Total - 85 people
9 out of 77 people in dream run were our heros who were walking with Jaipur Foot. Proving that Jaipur foot is a boon to them and now nothing can stop them!!!
We also had 2 stilt walkers walking tall with banner, making people aware about our cause.
We also had a huge 1000 feet wide banner...yes you have read it right...1000 feet banner... carrying the message o fMake Mumbai Disability Free.
