Team Yu&Me conducted the Vallamai 2016 marathon for children with special needs.The objective of the run was to create awareness on how important it is for children to be physically active whether they have difficulties or not. It is also to motivate the children to do something on their own which will help them realise their power and potential. To know more go to facebook.com/vallamaiyesican.

Each child was assigned a volunteer who was like a friend to the child. The children were encouraged and enjoyed running or walking with their new friends. They recieved medals from Guest of honour, Mr. Prithiveeraj (Film actor). Mr.Siddarth (A motivational speaker) was the chief guest and gave a wonderful speech in which he mentioned that the 'best gift parents can give their child was to treat them normally'.
