Here we share some glimpses of our BIA Wheelchair Marathon 2023, organized on March 4th 2023 in Bhrikutimandap.
The marathon being one of our biggest annual event which resumed this year after pandemic saw a wonderful participation of 185 wheelchair users from different organizations and places in Kathmandu. We had the honor of having Her Excellency Felicity Volk – Australia’s Ambassador to Nepal as Chief Guest, Mr. Saurabh Jyoti – The Director of Jyoti Group of Companies as Special Guest and respected representatives of fellow organizations working in the disability sector of Nepal.
The program was presented by Crystal Castle & Shambala Gardens and supported by eSewa Money Transfer and Dotel Fresh.
Alongside the marathon, we also organized a blood donation campaign along with Himal Hospital’s blood bank team and we are truly grateful to all the blood donors.
Coinciding the event with ‘International Wheelchair Day’ week and BIA Founder Chogyal Rinpoche’s birthday, we have been organizing this marathon annually and we hope to be able to make this a better event every year. The whole BIA team would like to thank the participants, guests, sponsors and media friends for making our event a success. Thank you everyone
