42 youth with disability had volunteered to participate in the Thumbs up challenge.It involved 20 tough challenges like jumping frm 20 feet into water and most of them did not know swimming....They loved the event. They said thatÂ for the first time they realised that even non-disabled youth have fear.
"The non disabled youth only focus on themselves to win a medal, but we were different.Â We decided in the bus itself that the 3 who would beÂ in the front of the race, will always help those at the back. Each of us did not want to focus on our winning. we wanted our team,Â the Y4J team, to get maximum medals.
A good example of strategy and team management which had great results!!!!
