Ateneo Run for Your Life 2

Keeping medical students in a scholarship program until they graduate is not easy on the budget for any school, not event for a school like Ateneo de Manila University. And it’s heart-warming to know that Ateneo is doing every possible effort to support the students get through college.

This year, the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health (ASM+PH) is holding a race with an objective to raise funds for their scholars. At the event launch, I had the opportunity to meet two of their scholars, Claudine and Jeremiah. Claudine or Claude is from Tacloban. Up to this day, she has a vivid memory of the devastation Typhoon Yolanda has brought to the people of Tacloban, including her family. Her family was left with almost nothing, except their faith and her dream to become a doctor. Despite the tragedy, Claude didn’t lose hope to become a doctor. Some unexpected turn of events brought Jeremiah’s family to a point that they may no longer be able to financially support him with his aspirations to become a doctor. Thanks to the ASM+PH scholarship program. And with our help, Claude and Jeremy and the rest of the medical students in the program will be able to fulfil their dreams and be the best doctors in our community.

These scholars after they graduate and have become full-pledge doctors are being required to work in the country for at least five years, and help the students in the program in return.

I am inviting you all to join the Ateneo Run for Your Life 2.
