Running for a Cause

milal run volunteer ver1


As you may already know, Canada has been dubbed as one of the most liveable countries in the world today because of the amount of respect it places on the values and rights of each individual. This cultural mosaic extends to various social minorities, including people who have disabilities.

While seeking to embrace everyone in the social sphere, it comes as no surprise that a selected number of individuals will encounter obstacles to accessing useful information, services, and resources due to language barriers, cultural differences, and inadequate exposure to the social environment.

As such, Milal Run 2016 aims to raise awareness about these realities and bring hope and courage to people with disabilities, so that they – too – can feel integrated into society.
