Team Art of Living at the TCS World 10K Bengaluru

“It’s going to be an emotional run…..”
“I want to raise awareness of the problems”
“I can’t wait to cross the finish line…”

Thoughts before a marathon: All the above and more.
Marathon motivation: Fitness, team spirit, social impact…many.
Impact created when I run: Immeasurable.

If ‘immeasurable’ seems like an exaggeration, consider this. A middle-aged lady, Dwaraka, raised Rs 47 Lacs for a cause at the TCS Marathon last year. A social entrepreneur who continues to invent himself even after retirement, raised Rs 12 Lacs. This is only the money they raised. These amounts have been pumped back into social causes, setting off a valuable chain reaction at the grassroots. Families, children and women have been empowered by giving education and livelihood training.

In the TCS 10K 2017 run:  

  • Rs 25 lakhs were raised for causes associated with children
  • Over a crore was raised for community development
  • Over 2 crores, 16 lakhs were raised for education
  • Total of 9,000+ donors contributed

Here’s a chance for you to run with us.
