Sikh soldier with disability runs marathons
Devender Pal Singh, an Indian soldier, was severely injured during the Kargil War in 1999. He did not let his injuries come in his way.
Today the former soldier and amputee is known as the 'Indian blade runner' and has been running marathons for 15 years.
Singh’s story is making a difference in the lives of other Indian amputees. He was not a runner before his leg was amputated but challenged himself to become one as a way to inspire him beyond his war injuries.
Today he is inspiring amputees across India with his presentations and his support group called The Challenging Ones. The group has over 250 and many are following his footsteps by becoming amputee runners.
