Yesterday, i attended the 55th Anniversary Celebration and the launching of the 1st World Vision Fun Run and witnessed how the lives of out-of-school children and school drop-outs have been transformed by being able to graduate from school and live comfortable lives through World Vision’s Child Sponsorship Program.
In this 1st World Vision Run, to be held on June 24, 2012 at the Bonifacio Global City, World Vision invites runners to share the same kind of love that can change lives—lives of children in need. With a very small act of kindness these children will be able to look ahead to better lives with better opportunities, all because you willingly opened your heart and share love!
This Run is a way for you to make a real and lasting difference for ONE precious boy or girl in need. Proceeds from registration fees shall be pooled together with other World Vision resources so children, families and communities may be provided with the following:
- Skills training
- Improved Nutrition
- Livelihood assistance
- Health care
- Safe water
- Values formation
“Towards Fullness of Life” is the theme for World Visions very first Fun Run to be held at the Bonifacio Global City on June 24, 2012. The organization hopes to partner with new groups to help more children and sustain communities to reach their full potential by addressing the causes of poverty and injustice.
World Vision is a Christian development, relief and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities worlwide. Celebrating its 55th Anniversary this year, World Vision stands by its year-long theme “Sharing the Joy of Hope”.
