C-SASIL Abilities Challenge

10 June 2012

2012_c-sasil_1On June 10th, Canadian-South Asians Supporting Independent Living (C-SASIL) organized the 2nd Annual Abilities Challenge which took place at Brampton Soccer Centre. It was a wheelchair relay-race to raise awareness about disability in the community. Just like last year, the Foundation entered a team in the race. As our team went around the gymnasium propelling themselves on a wheelchair, others cheered them on all the way to the finish. Although we didn’t make the podium, the event was a lot of fun and really helped to gain an understanding of the challenges people with disabilities encounter and how fortunate we are. Overall, the turnout was great with 21 teams participating and even more people cheering them on. C-SASIL is an organization that promotes disability rights and provides services to those that have disabilities.
