A group of city-based non-governmental organisations (NGOs) organised a sports meet for the disabled at MGM Public School, Dugri, Phase 1, on Thursday.

The meet began with lighting of the lamp by the school director GS Thind. A march past by the participating students was a delighting sight for everyone present on the occasion.

Various events, including 25m walk, 25m race, 50m race, 100m race, relay race, wheel chair race and tricycle race, marked the occasion.

The event was held to mark the International Day for Persons with Disability.

One of the organisers said the motive behind such an event was to showcase the abilities of disabled students in mainstream society.

The meet concluded with a cultural programme and trophies were distributed among winners.
