For over a year now, Care2Run has been privileged to play host to university students from Japan who’ve sought to learn about how sports and exercise can be used to transform the lives of differently-abled young persons.
Some folks find interacting with children and youths a challenge. And then there are others, like volunteer mentor Stephanie, who’re not only comfortable around young persons, but revel in their company.

The reality, however, is that V only enlisted as a mentor just before the programme began. So the bond between mentor and mentee was forged in just 10 weeks!
