CRY Cadence Corporate Citizenship Challenge, corporate Olympic tournament is a unique event that combines sport and corporate citizenship. It brings the action of multiple sports like cricket, soccer, table tennis, badminton, basketball and a mini-marathon, with participation from corporates, who’ll all come together over a weekend, in Delhi.
What also makes 5Cs unique in the area of corporate NGO partnerships is that it is not just about handing over a cheque or merely playing on the sports field. But of corporates partnering and engaging with CRY, which has been working with children for 30 years, because they realize they can play a role not just in bettering the lives of underprivileged children in the country but also of creating awareness and sensitizing people to child rights in India.
Since its inception, 5Cs has raised over 2.7 crore to support CRY’s movement for child rights.
