Despite the cancellation of the 2019 North Pole Marathon, #FWDTeamAsia was determined to run and so we hosted the FWD 78° North Pole Marathon. Nine runners from #FWDTeamAsia completed their run for four major charities at Longyearbyen, Svalbard.

Earlier this year, we provided travel insurance to over 100 Special Olympics' athletes going to the World Games in Abu Dhabi. We believe this is a step in the right direction to empower people with intellectual disabilities to live fulfilled lives.
