“This is a pleasant surprise for me and my other colleagues that have been honoured by the Lagos Women Run organisers, this show of love is very appreciated”

“I must confess, this is quite timely and it shows that the Lagos Women Run organisers want the best for all whether physically fit or physically challenged” she stated.

Tayo Popoola coordinator of the Lagos Women Run explained that the gesture to the special athletes is one of the numerous ways the project is trying its best to support women from all walks of life.

“We have continually said the Lagos Women Run is beyond sports, and we will continue to do more in collaboration with our partners and sponsors” Popoola assured.

“What we have given to these Special Athletes is a token to show we actually care about them, we hope it will help to augment their training and personal needs”

Maisaje Vera-Yohanna from Plateau State emerged the winner of the 2022 edition of the Lagos Women Run.
