Running with disabled children

Cecile Gulslain

A group of disabled children were in for a wonderful treat at the local Marly Le Roi Park in July. A day of fun outdoor activities was arranged for Un exploit pour Lila, an association that raises funds to buy expensive equipment for handicapped children who are then able to hire the equipment while taking holidays, travelling or to attend sporting events.Eager fitness enthusiasts arranged a fun run for a group of employees as well as the children in a bid to encourage them to embrace life and enjoy some healthy activity while also exposing them to the equipment available that provides additional accessibility to them. After all the activity, a picnic was enjoyed by staff, the children and their parents who are often isolated in coping with the challenges of a disabled child.
