Why Yes Run?

1
Yes Run for Your Health.
  • Health of your mind.
    In participating the Yes Run, you'll be meeting a different group of persons, the Deaf, and you will be discovering how they are able to participate in a run even when they can't hear. These activities keep your brain healthy according to the book Keep Your Brain Alive (Katz, 1999).
  • Health of your heart.
    Aside from the cardio-vascular exercise you get from the run, you will also be glad to know that you are able to contribute to a neglected group in our society, and that there are actually a lot of people contributing. Together, we are doing something.
  • Health of your soul.
    Yes running is being good to yourself and to a neglected group of people.

Yes Run to Send Deaf Children to School.
Your registration fee for the run is a quarter of the monthly allowance given to Deaf children so they can go to school and change their lives. The more registered yes runners there are, the more Deaf children can go to school, and the longer they stay in school. PDI Article

Yes Running enables these Deaf children and youth and some more to go to school.
