No greater feeling as staying fit while supporting a cause for your community.
Two of the Company’s Committees – Health and CSR Committee – have come up to join a program that will cater each Committee’s objectives: Healthy Lifestyle and Helping the Community through this “Fun Run for a Cause”.
In preparation for the said program, we have joined the weekly trainings conducted by Nike Running Club (NRC) at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. At first, it was very hard for the first timers like us to go back to running. But, we believed in this saying: “If it doesn’t challenge us, it won’t change us”.
Then finally, after 2 months of training, Sunday, July 23, 2017, at 4 in the morning, we participated in the 7th Manila Bay Clean-up Run 2017 conducted by the Manila Broadcasting Company, held at Vicente Sotto St., CCP Complex, Pasay City. Everyone was excited and came in fully-equipped and determined to finish the run! The program started by some stretching and warming up. 21k-runners have lined up and were the first batch that ran, followed by 10k, 5k and lastly, the 3k-runners.
Thousands of people participated in the said event, from kids to oldies, and everyone gave their best. Our team was so eager that we were able to finish the run successfully, obtaining loot bag and Star City Ride-all-you-can ticket passes as prizes for completing the run.
After the run, we gathered with breakfast to recharge our energy at nearby fast food.
It was such a memorable event for the team since this is one of our first – First Fun Run experience with a cause. Indeed, there is no greater feeling than staying fit and healthy while supporting a cause for your community!
