Why do people Run…?
Different reasons that excite people…(DT) Personal commitment to a cause The high of being able to make a difference through social reach and healthier life-style Achieving self-set targets Success………achievement leads to motivational leap! Sometimes it takes another person or agency to realize the potential existing in themselves to make a difference!
Some of the reasons for corporate enthusiasm….. For some, it is an excellent brand leveraging opportunity (they even time their media plans accordingly!)-mobile branding, choreographed race formation,message specific costumes (of the cause that you support or your direct business objective) Some see it as a motivational tool for their employees across hierarchy! For many others it is being leveraged as HR tool Some make the opportunity an incentive for their employee/vendors/distributors
Contd… Yet others purely do it as a gesture of solidarity for their chosen social cause!-CSR
We seek……….. Your corporate participation………Please build a corporate team standing in support of us. It would be an absolute synergy if one of the top management people opt to run as a Dream Teamer along with the corporate team In both regard, we seek a window of ten minutes to come and make a presentation to your group.
Lets join hands……. And make this event OUR EVENT………….. Run in celebration of the spirit called life!
