As part of the 14th edition of Coimbatore Vizha, we are planning to conduct a special Olympics and Paralympics for the special people of Coimbatore on Jan 5th at Nehru Stadium.
It is a one-day event, special Olympics is for Intellectually challenged children of age 5-18. And Paralympics is for 18 + adults where we are planning to conduct track and field event and also sitting volleyball tournament.
Coimbatore Vizha is all about celebrating the city and it’s people. From this year onwards, we feel privileged to have included our special people in the city’s celebration.
Para athletes display great determination and courage to overcome their mental and physical obstacles. It is truly inspirational to watch them play as they prove that most things in life are possible.
Our goal is not only to encourage them by providing a platform for them to display their true grit and perseverance but also to create awareness of mental and physical disabilities with the hope that this will create a better life for those who are differently-abled.
