MUMBAI, INDIA – JPMorgan Chase recently held its 11th annual corporate employee run across Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Pune. The Run championed sustainability, zero-waste, diversity, inclusion, and community impact. This event was marked by team camaraderie, commitment to healthy living, sustainable practices, diversity, and the spirit of community giving. More than 27,000 employees came together, forging closer relationships between colleagues, creating shared experiences and memorable moments.

“Each year, the JPMC Run gets bigger and more energetic. The event offers shared experiences, memories driven by a common sense of purpose for all of us. Apart from pursuing our impact initiatives for children’s education, welfare, and sustainability, this annual celebration of team camaraderie unifies us in the spirit of healthy living, supporting our personal and collective goals,” said Deepak Mangla, CEO, Corporate Centers, India and Philippines, JPMorgan Chase.

This year, participants from four cities had the option of participating in a 5K or 10K format, with additional categories, less commonly found in such events such as 45+ years of age and non-binary gender – underlying the spirit of inclusion. The event brings together first-timers, amateurs, and expert runners.

“We are raising the bar every year, celebrating teamwork, wellness and community impact and creating a space where every employee is welcome to experience their runner’s high,” said Kaustubh Kulkarni, Senior Country Officer, India, and vice chairman, Asia Pacific.

The event was also a platform to celebrate human connections with employees pledging their support for causes and champion themes at display covering disability, LGBTQ+, veterans, women and intergenerational inclusion, sustainability, wellness, camaraderie, and community impact.

The RUN is supporting child welfare and education, health and nutrition kits, hygiene kits, school supplies and other material are donated to children from the underserved communities, particularly those who are HIV+ or suffer from terminally ill diseases.

Volunteers worked together to make this a zero-waste event, by adopting a strategy to reduce the plastic usage, and food wastage at the event, reuse unconsumed food items and personal athletic wear instead of single use event t-shirts and recycle the waste collected by segregating it at source.
