The city of Rio offers tickets for the Games to people with disabilities

The Rio city government has announced that it will distribute more than 500,000 tickets for the event to people with an impairment, school children and city hall workers. The announcement was made during a press conference on Monday (30 May) – the 100-days-to-go mark until the Paralympic Games – at the Palacio da Cidade in the neighbourhood of Botafogo.

Municipal secretary Pedro Paulo said the tickets would be distributed to regular attendees of government-sponsored support centres for people with an impairment, to students with medium to high evaluations in the city’s public school system, and city government staff who take part in a Paralympic-themed photo competition.
