Hyderabad, December 2023: WaveRock, One of the most prominent IT SEZ in Hyderabad, hosted the 5th edition of WaveRun, a fun filled mini-marathon. Chief Guest Shri Jayesh Ranjan, IAS, Principal Secretary, I&C and IT, Government of Telangana; flagged off the Run. Over 3500 participants spread the message of inclusivity and sustainability. The event helped foster a strong sense of community and bonding among the employees & employers of reputed national and multinational corporates, located in the IT SEZ.
Speaking at the flag off Shri Jayesh Ranjan said, on behalf of WaveRock, an excellent programme called Wave Run was hosted. Prior to Covid, they used to host this run for past several years. after that interruption they restarted this run today. It had excellent response and thousands participated in the run in 3K, 5K and 10 K categories. I just flagged it off. Most of the participants are employees here, they took part along with their kids and families. The run is being organised with the noble objective of gender equality, to ensure equality between men and women in every stream of life and wipe out any differences between the genders.
Speaking on the occasion, Col Sanjay Bhardwaj, Senior Director & Head Property Management, said that WaveRock has been hosting this run for years, however, due to Covid, there was an interruption and we restarted the run today. Every year we support a social cause, this year we are espousing the cause of gender equality, the theme of the run is ‘equality has no gender.’ In line with our philosophy of sustainability, in this run we are giving away prizes like electric scooters and electric bikes and also we have set up electric charging station in WaveRock. I am sure this will sensitise and make the public aware of sustainability, for the benefit of our future generations and will go a long way in educating the society. Wave Rock is a second home to the employees and employers of various multinational corporates, as they spend significant part of their lives here, It is only appropriate that they familiarize themselves with the people and their immediate environs, better. WaveRun accomplished this objective by bringing them together to share experiences, challenges and successes. Our endeavor is to build a holistic community within and beyond the workspace.
In this edition of WaveRun, participants of all ages enthusiastically took part in 10 K, 5 K and 3 K categories of Runs. WaveRock aspires to create an ambience of comfort and supportive space. The Run is one of several such initiatives, which enable employees of our tenant corporates to feel a sense of belonging and commitment to their work.
