PU Jalandhar

7th April 2018, Jalandhar: LPU, in association with Spinal Cord Injury Association (SCIA) held the concluding day of ‘Vistaar’ 2018 with Para games such as Athletics, Shot Put, Javelin, Discuss throw, Shooting, Rugby, Basketball and Cricket for Spinal cord Injured people. Almost 300 persons with spine injuries, even from far off cities including Kerala, Jammu, Punjab, Bihar, Himachal, Delhi and Haryana participated. The day focused on appreciating the efforts and high spirits of such people for leading a happy and an active life.

Different sessions of the ‘Vistaar’ 2018 were aimed to sensitize the society and involved agencies in adopting stringent measures for further prevention of such injuries. SCIA President Parvinder Singh Sonu and Vice President Davinder Singh were observed encouraging the participants, who themselves had been bed-ridden for several years. The flagship sports event for SCI patients brings together people who have had their lives changed by a traumatic injury or illness. The Para-games also help to soothe the difficulty experienced by wheelchair-dependent people in maintaining cardiovascular health and fitness through daily activities.
