May 2013

Come and support the visually impaired at the 10K Run. In the relatively short period of five years, the World 10K Bangalore, the World’s Premier 10K Run, has added to the Garden City’s reputation as a ‘Global Running Destination’. It has not only enticed some of the world’s leading distance, track and field athletes to come and race, but also has mobilised the health and fitness conscious citizens of Bangalore to come together and run as one.

The TCS World 10K Bangalore is in its sixth edition (and the third under the title sponsorship of Tata Consultancy Services). It will be run on May 19, 2013, and promises to be the biggest and best yet.
Run for Sightsavers supports soft skills and computer training for 30 young women including 20 visually impaired to help them find meaningful employment. Be a part of the change.
If you need more information, please speak to Ms. Sneha Shinde at 022 28820808/ 1919 (Extn 112) or send an email to sshinde@sightsavers.org
