BANGALORE: Microsoft India GTSC organises the Community Affairs Initiative agenda focusing on three broad themes, that is, education, empowerment and environment. The intent of every activity that is planned to help is to enable employees and their families be able to make a difference in their own way.

The awaited event through the year is the Charity Run, which is a five-kilometre run organised within the Embassy Golf Links Business Park, where employees will get an opportunity to run with their friends and families for a cause.

The participants are a mix of professional runners, but largely people coming together as one community. The event expects the participation of tiny tots from the age of three to elderly parents of 60 years with energy and passion.

Commenting on the event Thomas Payyapilli, senior director of Microsoft India GTSC said, “At Microsoft GTSC, we are extremely passionate about giving back to the community in a meaningful way. The Charity Run is one such initiative, where our teams come together as one community, engage with the children that they are supporting and demonstrate their commitment by pledging for their run. The company values their commitment and matches the contribution of every pledge made. This is the fourth year of our run and I am proud to see the increased participation every year."
