When we started MAI inspired by our mothers during chemo, we never thought we could help so many more people.
“We started with our mothers going through chemo… but we’ve helped a lot of people along the way. We’ve helped athletes [get dressed and undressed] with shoulder surgery shirts or helped patients with their recovery from rotator cuff surgery, we’ve helped caregivers [take care of their patients] with dignity.” - Adriana, co-founder at MAI We Care.
At MAI We Care, we are thankful for having had the opportunity to be part of Guatemala’s first Paralympic Race #WeThe15. The race took place in Guatemala City on Sunday, May 14 at 7:30 am. Hundreds of people of all ages, with and without disabilities participated during the race. Some walked, other ran distances ranging from 5 to 10 kilometers. 🏃♂️👩🦽 💜 At the end of the race, all the participants received their recognition medal as a gesture of gratitude and effort.
The first ever Paralympic Race in was organized in benefit of para-athletes in Guatemala. The funds collected will be allocated in different programs, with the mission of helping athletes achieve their dreams though sports.
