Bangalore, India, Sept 25, 2016 -- Wipro Ltd. (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a global information technology, consulting and business process services company, organized the eleventh edition of the 'Spirit of Wipro’ Run, an annual global initiative to champion and reinforce the core values of the organization.
Over the past decade - from Bangalore to Boston and Sydney to Stockholm - thousands of employees, their families, friends, clients, partners, analysts and suppliers have participated in the Run.
Commenting on the Run, Abidali Z Neemuchwala, Chief Executive Officer and Member of the Board, Wipro Limited said, "Distance running is an expression of grit, determination and focus. This aligns closely with our ethos and core values. It was encouraging to see thousands of enthusiastic participants from across the globe come together to make the 2016 Run a huge success."
The eleventh edition of the ‘Spirit of Wipro’ Run saw over 83,000 participants, including 4,000 participants from Wipro’s client organizations.
In India, the Run was held in 16 cities, including Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata. The event saw an officially timed 21K or half marathon in Bangalore, Chennai and Pune. This apart, timed 10K races were held in Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur, Kochi, Mysore, Kolkata, Manjakudi and Hyderabad.
Saurabh Govil, President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Wipro Limited said, "The ‘Spirit of Wipro’ Run reflects the collective passion and resolve of numerous individuals across the globe. It nurtures and builds a strong sense of togetherness, not just within our organization, but also within our ecosystem of clients, partners, suppliers, employee families, and others. The purpose behind the Run underscores our commitment to support social and community causes."
Participants across geographies also support identified social causes. In India, the 2016 edition of the Run, organized in partnership with the not-for-profit Wipro Cares, is dedicated to supporting the educational needs of underprivileged children with disabilities.
Access to education for underprivileged children has been a cornerstone of Wipro Cares’ work with proximate communities. Since 2014, Wipro Cares has extended this to work on education of children with disabilities. Its goals are to promote early intervention, which increases the likelihood of early mainstreaming, and inclusive education to enable children with and without disabilities to learn together.
In addition, Wipro Cares supports the basic healthcare and rehabilitation needs of underprivileged children with disabilities and aims to increase the ability of families and local communities to manage the needs of these children.
