CHANDRANS YUVA FOUNDATION’S ISR RUN 2K22 (“A MARATHON TO ENCOURAGE THE DIFFERENTLYABLED”)
On 21st August 2022, We from Chandrans Yuva Foundation have Conducted ISR RUN 2022, “A RUN FOR THEM WITH THEM” to support the differentlyabled community. This marathon is first of its kind marathon where you can witness the cause of your run on the same day at the same stage. soon after the marathon we distributed all the beneficiaries required for differentlyabled community like blind glasses and canes for visually challenged, hearing aids for deaf, tricycles and wheelchair for handicapped people, vessels for transgender, education kit for underprivileged school children.
The ISR Marathon is about more than just ﬁnishing the race and improving your time. But there’s something else that draws people in. The event gives participants the opportunity to help differently abled people. ISR Marathon is an example of personal social responsibility. It all comes down to giving back to society.
The ISR Marathon began in the year 2018. The goal is to bridge the gap between differently abled people and the general public. ISR Marathon helps differently abled and disabled people in the community.
For the past ﬁve years, Chandran’s Yuva Foundation has organised the ISR MARATHON; but nevertheless, the marathons in 2020 and 2021 were cancelled because of covid lockdown. After two years, CYF MADE A BIG RETURN, with over 5000 people participating and witnessing the Run’s cause. The ISR marathon is everyone’s social responsibility; its goal is to help the differently abled community by encouraging them to achieve and give meaning to their lives.
