Could you run in the Bristol 10k to support disabled children and adults living in some of the poorest parts of the world like Jashmeen and Farhanaj?

These two sisters from Uttar Pradesh, India were born with under-developed lower limbs, and without appropriate wheelchairs, they have been completely dependent on their family members to get around. Life was a struggle for the girls’ parents too, as they either had to carry Jashmeen and Farhanaj to school, or take them individually on back of a bicycle.

Now, with their Motivation tricycles Jashmeen and Farhanaj are independent, confident and able to go about their lives just like other children their age. Crucially, they have been able  to continue their education now that the trip to school is trouble-free.

“My life has changed with this tricycle – so many things have come with this tricycle!” Jashmeen

The Bristol 10k takes in some of Bristol's finest views and the route runs along the Avon beneath Brunel's the iconic Clifton Suspension Brisdge
