Beijing Marathon 2013!

Running is in the air at Bethel! This time of year is a great time to go outside, exercise and have fun with friends and supporters.

Following the success of last year’s Beijing Marathon, we have 18 kids who will be running 5km in the Beijing Marathon on the 20th October 2013. Running alongside 30,000 other runners, each child will be paired up with an adult  to finish the race.

In a culture where disabled people are rarely seen outside, these kids are doing something very unique. In running, they are proving to the world that they should be taken seriously, that their visual impairment does not need to impair their life, and that they can do almost everything that a sighted person can do.

Thank you for partnering with us to ensure that our kids live life to the fullest, one step at a time.
