Great Delhi Half Marathon: Delhi Run (6 km)
Run For Healthier Tomorrow
Gates India, for many years has been Powering Life
of employees by participating in various extracurricular activities. Recently Gates employees participated in “Great Delhi Half Marathon” on 23rd Nov. 2014 which is a part of our Global initiative i.e. “Gates Wellness Challenge”
. The goal of the Global Wellness Challenge is to have fun and encourage healthy lifestyles among Gates employees. Programs that offer healthy choices and a variety of fitness events not only help reduce health care costs; they also demonstrate our focus on the wellbeing of employees and help us feel good about coming to work.
Even before the fog cover had cleared, participants had put on their running shoes all charged up for the Half Marathon on Sunday morning. A few of them considered it a sporting event, while others jogged for fitness. A few others even walked for the cause raising issues of conserving the environment. Many participants felt the marathon would help inculcate the habit of running and exercise. After completing the Marathon a small get-together was organized where all participants full fill their appetite and shared lighter happier moments.
Gates will continue to participate in such events as we believe that exercise is“The Smart Choice for healthier tomorrow.”
