TCS marathon on May 15

TCS will be conducting the ninth edition of its ‘World 10K’ marathon in the city, which is based on the idea of running for a cause. It has been recognised as one of South India’s largest fund-raising platforms where more than 100 NGOs raise funds with the help of a foundation called ‘India Cares.’

In eight editions, the event has directly impacted over 75,000 individuals and has raised funds for over 12 causes like education, environment, disability, human rights,
womens’causes, environment amongst others. This year’s edition saw over Rs 4 crore being pledged, a few days before the race on May 15.

A unique feature in this edition is that over 75% of the contribution is from individuals raising funds through personal networks.
