Life at a B-School is much more than just studies and placements. Xpressions, one of the biggest Management-Cultural fest India, is a three-day extravaganza which is scheduled to take place from 16th to 18th November 2018.
At the heart of Xpressions, eastern India’s biggest management cultural fest, an important part lies in the CSR events, and Xpressions 2018 offers a plethora of such events as a way of giving it back to the society. Keeping the 30 years of its legacy alive are the two prime, CSR events, which XIMB hosts every year at Xpressions- X-Enable and X-Athon.
X-Enable is an initiative of the Social Responsibility Cell (SRC), XIMB in association with Xpressions, to provide an avenue for specially abled children to spread their wings and soar high in the sports arena by exhibiting their nonchalance, mettle, and willpower. The event is the annual sports meet for the specially abled children. Corporate Sector is also encouraged to be a part of this sincere and empowering effort by SRC to include our specially abled friends in our lives, laugh with them, and grow with them.
Last year, SRC, XIMB hosted students from Sri Harsha Memorial School for the Deaf and the Mute. A motley of sports events were organized-lemon race, 50m race for both boys and girls, badminton, volleyball. Following the events, there was prize distribution ceremony followed by lunch and sweets distribution by the volunteers.
X-Enable 2018 is going to be held on 7th October from 10am to 2pm at the XIMB campus.
It is the belief of the Social Responsibility Cell, XIMB, that we all can come together to shoulder this responsibility of building happier childhoods and a better society.
X-Athon is the 10k marathon, a prelude to Xpressions, organized and conducted by the budding managers of XIMB as we believe in giving back to the society much more than what we receive from it. Last year, XIMB ran for the cause ‘When you finish, they start’, with the aim of supporting child education. The proceeds from the events went to CRY- Child Rights and you, to ensure education of the children in CRY supported project areas. Winners of X-Athon will be felicitated with cash prizes. ₹20,000 for Overall Winner (Male/Female), ₹10,000 for Winner (Female) and ₹10,000 for Runners Up position.
X-Athon will be held on October 7, 6:00 AM onwards from XIMB Campus. This year the theme for X-Athon is, ‘Sweat out your Depression’. This marathon aims to encourage people to break away from all the sorrow, gloom, dispiritedness, negativity and race forth with rejuvenated vigor and zest.
