Runew 2012 Is Back!

I vividly remember one of my first races at the McKinley Hill one February morning in 2009 where the starting line was located at an obscure area within McKinley that we had to ask for directions from security guards manning the buildings around. The start turns out to be at the back of the Chinese International School (who would have known as there were no markings on the school building).

That race, the RUNEW Race was one of the few 15k races i joined that year and remembering what fun it was running that distance.

This race will help raise funds for the Asian Hospital Charities, Inc.’s charitable endeavors in sharing the Asian Hospital and Medical Center’s facilities and their doctor and staff’s expertise, time and energy to less fortunate patients and coordinate the provision of healthcare to beneficiaries by competent specialists.

A race for the orphans, a race for your hearts! A very special race for the month of the heart—The Race For The Orphans will stir the Camp Aguinaldo Grounds in the still misty morning of February 12, 2011 each not only to experience running the peaceful grounds of the military camp but to take part in answering the orphans cry for love and compassion.

It is with this aim that Rundezvous Events Inc., will stage this event that will provide scholarship grants through “I-Hope”, a trust fund that will support the educational needs of these orphans of soldiers killed in action in Mindanao and for future grantees of the AFP Educational Benefit System (AFPEBS).

Each runner pays a modest registration fee of P600.00 for the 10k run and P400.00 for the 5k run. Inclusive with this fee is a nice running singlet available in various sizes, a Timing tag, race bib number and a goodie bag from our sponsors.

Our registration Centers will be at the Secondwind Running Stores in Ortigas and Quezon City; ROX at Bonifacio High Street and at A Running Circle (ARC) along Quirino Avenue corner Roxas Blvd., Manila.

“We shall leave no soldiers’ orphan behind”. This is the AFP Educational Benefit System Office’s (AFPEBSO) tagline, an organization which deeply recognizes the heroism in each Filipino soldier. It is one of the morale and welfare outfits of the Armed Forces of the Philippines that grant educational benefits both to the military personnel and their dependents with the aim of helping them secure a brighter future. As it recognizes our soldiers’ heroism, especially of those who lay down their lives in protecting peace, AFPEBSO gives priority to the orphans of Filipino soldiers who were killed in action.

We’ll see you at Camp Aguinaldo on February 12, 2012!
