A Team of 13 disabled racers are riding from Mandalay to Nay Pyi Taw in the spirit of sport, a 322 kilometre (200 mile) ride for which they embarked on November 27.

This is the second event organised for disabled racers by the Shwe Min Thar Foundation. The team is expected to arrive in Nay Pyi Taw on December 3.

“The team is riding to Nay Pyi Taw to take part in a ceremony for International Day of People with Disability on December 3,” Ma Aye Nandar Tun, assistant coordinator for the Shwe Min Thar Foundation told The Myanmar Times.

Five paramedics are dispatched to the race, she said.

She added that the Shwe Min Thar Foundation hopes that this event will empower the racers both physically and mentally, so that the disabled in Myanmar are encouraged to pursue equal opportunities.
