Spirit of WIPRO Run @Kompleks Sukan Negara Shah Alam


Last Sunday morning, I attended the Spirit of WIPRO Run at Kompleks Sukan Negara Shah Alam. 
It was the 10th year anniversary for the Spirit of Wipro Run, which started in July 2006 and has since been a global annual effort. Every year, the Wipro employees and extended community around the world participate in Spirit of Wipro Run as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. 

3,200 runners from the WIPRO's community in Malaysia together with their family and friends participated in the run this year.
The objective of the "Spirif of WIPRO Run" is to create a platform that would bring together employees, families, customers and senior leaders across all divisions to fulfill the organization's goals. The goals are to create an entity where Wipro's diverse ecosystem grows united and believes they are all in it for the long run, to engage employees keep in mind their passion for health and fitness besides inculcating the culture of giving back to the society among the employees. 
The crowd preparing themselves having a warm up session together.
"Spirit of WIPRO Run" is part of WIPRO Cares, a corporate social responsibility program which focuses on contributing to the society by catalyzing systematic improvement in education and to the local communities where WIPRO operates in.

Wipro Cares is globally active in 3 charity categories which are Community, Education and Ecology.
Funds collected from the annual run are topped up dollar to dollar by Wipro.

Fitness First kick started at cool morning with some warp up exercises to get the participants ready for their run. At 7.30 am sharp, the participants were flagged off by Mr. Krishnamurthy Sriram.

There three categories available for the Spirit of Wipro Run were the
7km Men Open Category for ages 12 and above, 7km Women Open Category for ages 12 and above and a 3km Fun Run which was for families with young children below the age of 12 as well as the senior veterans for those aged 50 and above. 

The Top 3 runners for each of the category received winner's medal. In addition, all participants received a goodies bag and a t-shrit from Wipro while those who completed the 7km category run received a finisher medal.
Family time, parent pushing kid stroller to join the run together. 
Cute Mascots that every child like to have photo with.

Fun games awaiting everyone to take part. Total of 5 games on the day.

Fun for the kids to play, throw the ball to hit the bacteria. If able to hit 4 balls, will win the water gun.


A good morning catch up with buddies, we have fun in the games we took part too.

  29. People nowadays really don't get too much exercise. So, I think it's awesome that organizations like this organize non-competitive runs to encourage people to exercise.
