Welcome to The Wipro Chennai Marathon 2017

TWCM is a 6 year old race held in December every year in Chennai. This year the race will be on Dec 3rd. United Way of Chennai (UWC) has been the official charity partner of this Marathon since 2012. UWC serves as the philanthropic platform helping other participating NGOs connect with runners and potential donors. All funds raised through the TWCM platform are channelized through UWC which is responsible for the usage details, accounting and providing tax exemption receipts to all donors.

The Wipro Chennai Marathon gives one an opportunity to experience the joy of giving. The event acts as a platform to galvanize support from the society towards donating for a cause….Over the years, we have received tremendous support from the people of Chennai and across the globe. Different people choose different ways to contribute to society – some choose to donate money, some choose to raise money by reaching out to their inner circle, some volunteer their time and skills. TWCM provides a platform for everyone to find a perfect match in terms of the manner in which they want to give back to society.

Runners at this year's marathon will run to support causes in the Education, Sports, Livelihoods, and Healthcare space that one can contribute to. For each of those causes, we have tied up with one or more NGOs who will implement the program on the ground.
