International Day of People with Disability – CBD Torch Run

Unite for Inclusion, Strive for Equality.

People with disabilities navigate a world where barriers often overshadow opportunities. Addressing this issue is crucial for fostering inclusivity, as society’s true strength lies in embracing and empowering all its members. Recognizing their potential, breaking down obstacles, and offering support can create a world where everyone thrives, regardless of their abilities.

The Guardians of the Flame passionately advocate for inclusivity and empowerment for people with disabilities. Through innovative programs and dedicated efforts, they aim to break down barriers, provide support, and create a more inclusive world where individuals with disabilities can flourish and realize their full potential.

As the International Day of People with Disability approaches, The Guardians of the Flame are gearing up for a remarkable event to raise awareness and support for their cause. On December 1, 2023, they will be hosting the CBD Torch Run, an inclusive and inspirational event that invites people of all abilities to join in a celebratory torch run through the city center. This event promises to not only raise funds but also shine a light on the talents and potential of individuals with disabilities, fostering a sense of community and unity.

It’s on again, the largest Torch Run of the year is set to celebrate International Day of People with Disability.
