Companies participating in this category make an upfront non-refundable contribution towards a NGO of their choice while registering. Alternatively, they can choose a cause that they wish to donate to and UWM can help them choose the right NGO. The contribution is treated as a donation and is eligible for 80G tax exemption. Companies who register are assured guaranteed pre decided number of running slots for their employees. Post registration, the corporate puts together a team of employees who run any of the race categories they wish to - Dream Run, Half Marathon or Marathon. As part of the corporate registration, employees do not have to pay any extra amount as event application fees; however employees are encouraged to raise funds at an individual level for the registered NGO.
