Changing the World one mile at a time
Many people with disabilities are isolated from the society because of the social stigma. Parents feel ashamed when telling others about their children with disabilities. People looks at them with sympathy, not empathy.
Run2gether is committed to break that stigma in a running community one mile at a time. For runners with disabilities, running is more than just a sport. It is about challenging their physical and mental limitation to go beyond their disabilities. After crossing that finish line, they are no longer just a runner with disabilities, but a finisher.
By pairing up with a runner with disabilities, a guide-runner has an opportunity to get to know the person whom they normally would not meet in daily life. The bond of friendship and empathy are formed during the run and stay after the finish line.
