It’s an ordinary 3k/5k/10k and 21k road race alright but the advocacy behind this is quite unique in that its aim is to bring awareness of our financial, commercial or monetary security in life.
A brainchild of CFA Philippines (Chartered Financial Analysts), the fun run, “Financial Fitness Run” is being introduced into its program to make people understand how markets really work and to provide prospective investors with sufficient knowledge on how to make more informed and more prudent investment decisions.
The “Financial Fitness Run”, to be held on February 23, 2014 is the kick-off event of CFA Philippines’ Putting Investors First, a month-long investor awareness campaign. The CFA Philippines decided to introduce the fun run into the program since over the past decade, running as part of a healthier lifestyle has become a well-entrenched activity in the Philippines.
The “Financial Fitness Run” aims to capitalize on the popularity of this sport in order to generate a broad-based heightened level of awareness for the “investor rights”.
