Lanka IOC PLC has embarked on the organization’s next Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) stance by giving a generous donation towards the Trail Walk initiative which took place in October this year. 
The cheque for the generous amount was handed over to Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara by LIOC Managing Director, Shyam Bohra. 
Lanka IOC Managing Director, Shyam Bohra said, “We believe in providing support to crowd funding initiatives such as the Trail Walk, which help to bring together communities and the general public, who participate in a truly worthy initiative”.
The Trail Walk, which was a brainchild of Founders Nathan Sivagananathan and Sarinda Unamboowe is Sri Lanka’s largest ever crowd-funded charitable initiative. The aim of the walk by volunteers was to raise US$ 5 million or approximately Rs. 735 million towards building a new cancer unit at the Karapitiya Teaching Hospital in Galle. Trail  initially commenced in the year 2011 in the form of a walk which started from the southernmost part of the country and finished at the south in the course of 27 days covering 670 km in total. 
Lanka IOC PLC is the subsidiary of IOCL, a Fortune 500 company. It is the only private oil company, other than the state-owned Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) that operates over 199 retail petrol/diesel stations in Sri Lanka and has a very efficient lube marketing network.
