Assistanrt Travel Fund of Sjálfsbjörg - The national Association of people with Pysical Disabilites, was established in 1997 with the aim of facilitating the mobility-impaired to travel. The objective of the Fund is to enable persons with reduced mobility to travel inland or abroad with a travel assistant on non-discriminatory basis. The Fund grants applicants funding for travel assistance which makes it more likely on can affort to travel.
Since the foundation of the Fund, its income has been limited oand irregular and small amounts.
In the summer of 2005, Kjartan Jakob Hauksson completed his round trip around the island as he collected funds for the fund and laid a good ground for it. In 2016 we started to have few runners to participate in the Marathon for the Fund and succeded. But we need more runners who are willing to support us and we appreciate if you would run for us in the Marathon.
