5000 take part in “sensitivity run”

5000 take part in “sensitivity run”.

To create a feeling of sensitivity and equality in the minds of young children, over 5000 schoolchildren — along with paraolympic athletes, children with disabilities, skaters, cyclists and NCC cadets– took part in a 3 km run at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium here on Sunday.

The run organised on the occasion of the International Day of Sports for Development as Change Makers was flagged off by ‘Flying Sikh’ Milkha Singh in the presence of renowned sports persons like H N Girisha – 2012 London Paralympic silver medallist high jumper and other distinguished sports personalities and guests.

The event was organised by the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI) and was supported by the Sports Authority of India and Ministry of Social Justice, Government of India.

“We at PCI strongly believe that any change we desire to see in the society should start from our young citizens, our children and youth who bear the burden of crafting a new society on their tender shoulders. A child’s heart is the purest place and we are putting a huge effort to positively influence and bring ample sensitivity in their perception and attitude towards specially-abled and people with impairment,” said president of PCI Rajesh Tomar.

“This entire sports event is designed in a way where we will be teaching and instilling sensitivity in normal children by bringing together normal children and people with impairment, showing them that children with disability can also perform and talking extensively about the issue to them.

This is a small but solid step towards creating the sensitivity in children,” added Tomar.PTI
