2021 was particularly poignant as a historical moment, marking the 50th anniversary of the union of the Emirates forming the UAE. The country witnessed celebrations and expressions of gratitude for an unprecedented rise in development and innovation within its native and expatriate communities. As part of this, students from Fairgreen were selected to partake in the Impact Inclusivity 50km Run, organized by Team Angel Wolf (TAW).
TAW is a non-profit foundation created to encourage inclusion of people with disabilities and for society to embrace their own health, headed by Rio - a person of determination and his father Nick. Whilst partaking in many athletic runs and triathlons with his sister, he has been profiled regionally by many senior figures for his work. The purpose of the run was for students to collectively run pushing Rio’s wheel chair the distance of 50km (1km for every year since inception.) The event took place with the local community of The Sustainable City and served as a reminder to the students how resilience, perseverance and embracing differences are critical parts of Fairgreen’s pillars and a growth mindset.
