12th Annual Corporate Citizenship Challenge for the Cause of Children

Cadence Event  
11 Feb 2012 - 30 Apr 2012  
Bangalore and Dehli, India  

Twelve years ago a belief that a life of dignity begins with a holistic, healthy, happy childhood, took on a new spin in the form of the 5Cs.

This year the 12th 5Cs comes to you with a new name and a new face.

What started as a small initiative today unites some of the best known companies for the most eagerly awaited corporate sports challenge in the country. It has taken eleven years to build the event to make it the legacy that it has today.

Today corporates aren't the only ones to join the 5Cs. The event draws individuals from various walks of life; each an important stakeholder in championing the cause of underprivileged children to take the message forward. The 11th 5Cs (last year) saw many dignitaries, amongst them noted boxer and Olympic medalist, Vijender Singh, who marked the closing ceremony by endorsing our message for the cause.

Concern India Foundation and Cadence join hands in bringing together corporates with diverse backgrounds and skills to participate in the 12th 5Cs event and work towards one common cause the education of underprivileged children.

5Cs is held in Delhi and Bangalore each year. It has succeeded in raising over Rs 3.5 Crores to support the cause of underprivileged children. The 11th 5Cs last year saw approximately 1200 participants from 28 companies who played to restore equal education rights of every child in India.
