This Walkathon is organised by Offbeat Support Foundation NGO in association with the Enabling Unit of St. Stephens College Delhi on April 4th, at St. Stephen’s College lawn (SCR Lawn).
This is a one-of-a-kind event that aims to promote inclusivity of differently-abled persons in races and walkathon and also promote a “Tactile Guitar Chord Book” created by students of IIT Delhi , conceptualized by Golden Shine NGO and supported by Music Institute of Chromatics, which again are foundations that helps visually impaired students to learn to play musical instruments.
This walkathon uses the concept of buddy system wherein a buddy pair will be formed including either one sighted runner and one visually impaired runner or both sighted runners with one of them blindfolded. Pair will be tethered at the wrist and sighted buddy will guide them along the track. The pair which takes the shortest time to reach the finish line will be the winner.
We are inviting students from Delhi University, athletes, marathon runners, several local businesses and families to participate in the event.
