The CORPORATE CARES category lends companies an opportunity to monetarily support an NGO of their choice and to engage their employees to participate in TCS World 10K Bengaluru 2015.
Companies can choose from any of the NGOs listed with India Cares for the Event, to donate the amount contributed by them. If the company’s preferred NGO is not registered with India Cares Foundation, India Cares Foundation will assist the NGO in completing its registration formalities and thereby stand to benefit through its association with the Event.

Corporate Cares is a collective effort of all involved within the company to make a positive impact in society. As in any company initiatives, the involvement of the top management becomes imperative. India Inc. has put its best foot forward by contributing to charity. A 400 mtrs sprint will be conducted on race day (17th May 2015) only for the CEOs of participating Corporate Care teams, who will be flag bearers for the collective cause his/her company respectively supports. It’s a chance for the CEOs to move out of the board room and place himself as an athlete and crusader.

Last date to confirm participation of your CEO to India Cares is 30th April 2015.
