The ‘mini-paralympics’ brought together more than 350 attendees including 150 participants with disabilities who competed in popular but modified sports such as discus-throwing, hockey and track events, as well as an unconventional donut-eating relay race! Participants also gamely took part in the best mascot and best cheer competitions.
