Josh foundation celebrated "WORLD HEARING DAY" by organizing an event called ‘Fitness Fest - 2022’ for the hearing impaired children with the support of Dynacons. More than 350 hearing-impaired children participated in this event and put forward their capabilities. Josh foundation believes that sports are good not only for physical fitness but also for mental health. Besides this, it also develops qualities such as sportsmanship, communication and boosts their morale. It was an event filled with motivation and encouragement held on 3rd March 2020 at All India Balkan-Ji-Bari, Santacruz (W) Mumbai.

This initiative was designed by the Coresport Republic and the Venue partner was All India Balkan-Ji-Bari. International Rifle Shooter Neha Milind Sapte motivated kids by playing with them and sharing her personal experience. International Table Tennis Champion Pathik Mehta was also present and he showed some of his champion tricks to kids. At the event, various activities such as martial arts, hop race, three leg race, relay race, basketball, gymnastics, tug of war, and many more were conducted.

While in conversation with Dr.Jayant Gandhi, founder of JOSH foundation he said, "We have specially arranged this fest to uplift the lives of these impaired children and make them feel 'included.' Josh foundation is helping these budding kids by providing hearing aids. These kids are not dumb, infact they are reaching great heights in field of architecture, web designing, etc."

Devangi Dalal, co-founder of Josh foundation said, "Hearing is very important for communication and this importance of hearing we need to learn from hearing-impaired children. Keep the volume down, use earplugs in noisy surroundings, limit the time spent in noisy surroundings, use smartphones apps to monitor your voice levels and get regular hearing check ups. There are the 5 parameters highlighted by the WHO on this World Hearing Day."
