The Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH) in collaboration with Run Rio Events announced last night the launch of “Run For Your Life 2,” a run-for-a-cause, which will take place on March 1, 2015 at the Ateneo de Manila campus in Quezon City.
At a news conference for bloggers at Shakey’s in El Pueblo, Pasig City, Professor Chris Peabody of the ASMPH invited avid runners to participate in this worthy cause, whose proceeds will raise funds to aid scholars of the ASMPH. This fund raising event will help academically excellent but financially needy scholars sustain their education and make a difference in improving the health system in the country once they become medical professionals.
What makes this foundation different is that it doesn’t only give scholarships for the deserving poor, but sees through a student’s medical education until he/she graduates and in return will give back to other deserving students once they establish themselves in their respective medical fields.
The race will start at the Ateneo de Manila Campus, goes out to Katipunan Avenue then goes inside the University of the Philippines Campus and back.
Registration is now open for all categories until February 25. Here below are the details:
