6TH ANNUAL BIG WALK BY BINAH IN GARDEN ROUTE BOTANICAL GARDENS A FAMILY EVENT NOT TO MISS!
The 6th annual Big Walk by Binah will take place on 3 December 2023 in the Garden Route Botanical Garden. The focus of this year’s event will be creating a safe environment for all people with disabilities. The event coincides with National Disability Rights Awareness Month which is from 3 November to 3 December. 3 December is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, and is also celebrated as National Disability Rights Awareness Day. The public is encouraged to participate to show their support and acceptance of people with special needs.
Disability is the consequence of an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental, or some combination of these. The BIG WALK by BINAH offers an opportunity for all of us to remove these barriers and to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities through concrete action. Participants can enjoy the magnificent garden while taking part in the 2km or 4km walk from 16:00.
Funds raised during this campaign will again be utilised to empower the special needs community of George by means of information and training. The organisers of the campaign from the Non-Profit Organisation Binah and the tutoring centre for special needs children, Legacy Centre, are excited about the positive response and support they receive from the Garden Route community.
Binah (Understanding) creates awareness for children with special needs in order for society to better understand and accept them. The founder members of Binah themselves deal with the challenges families with special needs children face, as they raise their autistic sons. More than 200 people enjoyed the 2022 BIG WALK by BINAH and this year the organisers hope that even more families will attend the walk and share in the true sense of community while sharing their experiences with one another.
The Big Walk will start at 16:00 on Sunday 3 December – at the Garden Route Botanical Garden. Registration for the event will start at 15:00. Show your understanding and support by participating in this fun walk for a worthy cause.
