The second edition of our run/walk for scoliosis awareness held on the 24th of June, 2017! The rain tried so hard but our determination tried much harder!! #WeBeatTheRainToRaiseAwareness !
The day started with a heavy rain but people showed up regardless! Our meet point was the St. Saviours School, Ikoyi. We definitely had a significant increase from last year’s run, despite the odds!
Doctor Akindele was present to enlighten and sensitise the participants on Scoliosis. There were lots of questions and everyone got an answer! We definitely got lots of great feedback from this session- everyone learnt a thing or two.
Super Scoli-mom, Mrs Yetunde Omorode [Yettieboo as we love to call her] also shared with us her experiences on scoliosis from a parent’s perspective [You can read about her experience here]. It was another fantastic session we really enjoyed!
Our route was up-down the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge and yes we walked/ran, even in the rain.
Wet, Soaked, Dry or Near-Dry, we returned to St. Saviours school after the walk/run. There was yummy cookies for everyone as promised and cans of Ribena/Lucozade drinks. All thanks to our sponsors, Suntory Food and Beverages Nigeria and to Tamilore who made some cookies for everyone!
