This year again, ThoughtFocus is the official technology partner and sponsor of the Mysore Marathon to be held on Sunday 6th September in partnership with ‘Life is Calling’, the non-profit that conducts the marathon.
As per Shylesh Krishnan EVP at ThoughtFocus, “we are committed to promoting a work-life balance for the entire team throughout all locations. We understand corporate support encourages our associates to live more active lives at home and work, creating energetic environments that lead to happier living. We look to support events that drive employees to stretch their limits and discover the greater strength within themselves.”
ThoughtFocus partners with Life is Calling Sports Management Pvt. Ltd as their associate sponsor to run marathon events. “Over the last few years, our employees, not only have participated in the event but have volunteered to raise funds and actively manage the event,” said Lakshmi Shetty, HR Manager at ThoughtFocus
‘Life is Calling’ was co-founded by Shylesh Krishnan, who is also one of the founders of ThoughtFocus. It conducts the Mysore marathon to promote awareness, better health, and well-being among the new generation primarily involved in technology, BPO, and other services jobs. This will be the 5th year since Life is Calling began the Mysore Marathon. ThoughtFocus has sponsored each one of them.
With every passing year, the Mysore Marathon sees larger participation. This year it is expected to draw over 4,000 runners mostly from Mysore and neighboring Bangalore, but there are also participants from other parts of the nation and some international participants. Many are drawn to this marathon for the rich cultural heritage of the city.
