Mistakes happen because some kids have learning difficulties, lets talk inclusion #stratisastart . Earlier today @beirutmarathon Youth Race! #RaghebAlama#YouthRace#Runforacause#BeirutMarathon#Lebanon @skildcenter
The story: Most of you have noticed that the first 2 races today started underneath an arch that read STRAT. This was because this year the Beirut Marathon Association has been communicating inclusion of kids with learning difficulties at schools by partnering with the superstar Ragheb Alama and SKILD Center
April 22nd is the national day for students with learning difficulties therefore the Beirut Marathon created a stunt by introducing a mistake to the word "start" and have it written "strat" on the arch, highlighting a form of dyslexia and showing that #stratisastart to get the conversation going about inclusion, hoping that schools and students become more accepting to these special cases and help them succeed in classes which will lead to a healthier, more successful approach to life.
More details soon..
