I am honored to offer my most sincere congratulations on the occasion of National Paralympic Day. Once again, it provides an opportunity for the Para athletes and their supporters to be reunited together on same stage to change public perception towards people with disabilities life and showcase the Paralympic Movement’s Values.

Iranian Para athletes’ achievements, including their Paralympic and World record, have marked their commitments, empowerment and determination for the decades, and it ensures the Team Iran’s brilliant performance at Hangzhou Asian Para Games.

I hope National Paralympic Day will encourage more people with impairments and families towards Para sports and convey the message of Paralympic movement across the country.

National Paralympic Day plays an important role in discovering the new talents and has become part of the national calendar in 2016 following a Presidential order.
