Founder Trustee Devangi Dalal stated, “Josh always aims at changing the perception of people towards the hearing impaired and this year’s theme of World Hearing Day was also Changing Mindset, hence we thought an inclusive marathon will be best to showcase even Hearing Impaireds are capable to be like us”.
