An online ad stating: "Wanted: A Runner with Soul" led Gai Ben Dor and his father to embark on a challenging and inspiring journey; guiding a blind person all the way to the special Olympic marathon and later a climb to Mount Everest!! Inspired by the success of their journey, Gai initiated a groundbreaking project; he established a running group for people with physical, mental or cognitive disabilities, enabling them to run for the first time in their lives. Through this project, Gai and other volunteers help these people overcome impossible challenges and experience significant moments of hope and happiness in their lives. This unbelievable group of people just finished climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
