How to run for Charity


The Wipro Chennai Marathon offers you 3 convenient options to run for charity. You will be issued Section 80-G tax certificates by United Way of Chennai on your registered e-mail ID for all of the options. Understand each of the options detailed below and pick one on the website during the registration process:

Premium Charity Donor:

As a premium charity donor, you will pay an all-inclusive fee of Rs 2000 at the time of online registration which covers your race fee as well as the incremental amount which automatically gets donated as a charity contribution to United Way of Chennai.

In return, apart from the knowledge that you have donated to a worthy cause, your contribution will also be recognized by the following runner perks you’ll get:

✤ A special charity donor T-shirt (in addition to the official race T-shirt)

✤ VIP treatment on race day in a special premium charity donor tent (Expect air conditioned comfort, personal massage therapists and a hearty breakfast spread)

✤ An opportunity to visit an NGO of your choice which you would like your contribution to support (coordinated by UWC)

Raise funds online from friends & family:

If you’re the kind who loves creating awareness of a social cause you support amongst your friends and family and would like to ask them to contribute online, this is the option for you. When you select this option at the time of registration, you will only be charged the standard registration fee. United Way of Chennai will send you a separate email later with credentials to create an online user account on the official TWCM UWC fund raising platform. You can then use this platform’s social media plug-ins to let your friends and family know that you’ll be running for charity and ask for contributions. All funds collected from your friends and family will be aggregated under your user account and go as a consolidated contribution from your side to UWC. All your friends and family members who made contributions will receive a Section-80G tax certificate from UWC.

Charity Donor:

This option allows every single race registrant to donate a small amount to charity in a simple and easy manner. Registrants who choose this option will be presented a simple selection of charity amounts – Rs 100, Rs 250 or Rs 500 to add-on to their race registration fee. This incremental amount over and above the race registration fee will go in as a charity contribution to UWC.
