In conjunction with the International Day of Disabled Persons 2017, Sultan Ismail Hospital (HSI) and several other staff from Sultanah Aminah Hospital (HSA) got together with many other like-minded parties and threw a fun filled day for the patients of HSI’s rehabilitation and physiotherapy ward.

As many as 600 participants took part in the activities including the 10-storey vertical run, a 1.5km disabled run, as well as the 3km ‘Run for Respect’ fun run. Other activities included clowning and musical activities by Uncle Fishy and the Happy and Joyous Club Johor Bahru.

“We are grateful to those who came to support this event. We need to spread the awareness regarding the plight of the disabled people and events and activities like this are examples,” said Dr. Hajah Rosshaimi Merican, the State Health Director.

This year, the Run for Respect was organised to become a symbol for the local disabled and able bodied people to come together and move forward towards a better and more sustainable future. The event saw several other charitable organisations providing food and drinks as well as support and goodies from SDS Confectionary, Milo, Warrior Energy drink and The Iskandarian.
