 Team RNCT

Many community members successfully participated in the Mumbai Marathon held on January 21, 2018, with Vishal Bhansali and Kunal N. Shah completing the gruelling Full Marathon of 42 km.

For Vishal, it was the 7th consecutive full marathon. He completed the distance in a personal best of 3 hrs and 51 mins.
A few others also successfully completed the Half Marathon.
A special highlight this year was the participation of the team from RatnaNidhi Charitable Trust (RNCT) which championed its Disability Project at this event by advocating for its Make Mumbai Disability Free campaign. This project seeks to Make Mumbai city Disability Free and Friendly. 
Carrying creative banners and placards highlighting the project, 85 supporters participated along with RNCT in the run. This included two stilt walkers who waked tall with RNCT posters, while a 1,000 ft banner adorned the Marine Drive stretch, attracting eyeballs and highlighting the Make Mumbai Disability free campaign. 
Supporters of RNCT participated in different categories with six completing the Full Marathon, one running the Half Marathon, one doing the 10k run and 77 participating in the Dream Run. Significantly, there were nine beneficiaries with the Jaipur Foot who participated in the Marathon. The organisation says this was truly a victory of its efforts in empowering people with disabilities to lead an independent life and not be limited by their disability. 

Community members who completed the full and half marathon include:
