The Tata Mumbai Marathon (TMM) is much more than a Marathon, it is a showcase for the ‘Can do… Will Do’ spirit of humanity. The event transcends sport and encourages the ‘Power of the Collective’ to make a difference. The event has ignited a spirit of giving, empowering countless individuals to bond with civil society for the change they want to see in it.
United Way of Mumbai, the event’s philanthropy partner, continued their commitment towards charity and shattered all previous records raising over Rs. 34.36 crores, an unprecedented achievement.
With this, the cumulative amount raised by the event in 15 years since its inception in 2004 has breached the Rs 200 crores mark, standing at an impressive Rs. 229.16 crores today. This re-affirms TMM as the single largest sporting platform for philantrophy in India.
‘Giving’ through TMM reached a new high as 262 NGOs, 169 Corporates, 266 teams, 231 Young Leaders along with thousands of individual donors and fundraisers came forward to support a host of social causes including Education, Disability, Health Care, Women Empowerment, Children, Animal Welfare & Environment, Livelihood, Social, Civic & Community Development, Art, Elderly, and Gender among others.
