Rang De is excited to participate in the TCS World 10K Run which will be held in Bangalore on Sunday, the 27th of May, 2012. The run starts and ends at Kanteerava Stadium. Registration begins on Wednesday, the 21st of March on the TCS 10K Website. You can sign up for the 10k run or the 5.7K Majja Run (see the official website for the full list of categories).

How does Run for Rang De work?

In the past, Rang De Team members, volunteers, chapter members and supporters came forward to Run for Rang De. Each one pledged to raise an amount of their choice and helped raise funds through their individual donation pages. (See Gautam Mahanti’s donation page for the Mumbai Marathon). Family, friends and colleagues contributed to support and fulfill their runners’ pledges.

How will this help Rang De?

Marathons have been a great way for us at Rang De to create awareness about the cause and raise funds.  While the awareness helps us in getting more people involved, funds raised from the marathon will help us meet some of our overheads.  You could also choose to invest directly by funding an entrepreneur of your choice. Either ways, you can be sure that your contribution will add a smile to a rural entrepreneur and his/her family.
