The Tata Consultancy Services World 10k Bengaluru is a great platform for thousands of runners and donors! Doctors, corporate employees, tribal children, CEOs, running groups, volunteers, staff members, board member, friends, family, differently abled - every single individual joins to spread awareness of the cause they believe in. And many run as a team – which is quite uncommon in life and in the social sector as on a day-to-day basis, it is almost impossible for all to get together and have fun!
We are amazed at how the World 10k Platform has evolved since 2008. While these days so many talk about ‘CSR funding’, the platform of the TCS World 10k Bengaluru proves the power of ’Individual giving’. Since 2008, Rs 39.18 crore has been raised and 77% has come from individuals who have donated to causes!
The running community in making their run count and how! Many more Open 10k runners ran for a cause than in earlier editions of the Event to raise funds for a chosen CSO/ NGO
The funds raised in the last decade has directly made over 1,00,000 lives better in the specturm of causes - education, disability, vocational training, environment, animal welfare, woem empowerment, rural communities....
The structured approach to philanthropy by Procam International and India Cares promoting caring, transparency and accountability before, during and after the Event is building the philanthropy pillar and keeping everyone involved, motivated.
Yes, the TCS World 10k is increasingly being respected as a transparent, accountable and a caring, platform.
