Super Heroes Run: Manila

TV5 Superheroes Run: ManilaAs kids, we all dreamed and wished to become at some point in our lives, a superhero. Because we want to protect ourselves from being bullied, we want to protect and save the people we love and care for. These aspirations stemmed out from what we’ve watch on the telly and in the movies.

As we come of age, we realised that to be a superhero does not necessarily mean to have superpowers. All you need is a caring heart and the passion to help. And these all live within ourselves.

TV5 is inviting the superhero in you to join TV5 Superheroes RUn: Manila happening on 25 February 2017. And with every registration, a portion will be donated to the Alagang Kapatid Foundation (AKFI).

Run 4 Ur Future

Joining a race has its good benefits as running is a good form of exercise to improve our cardiovascular health, and our well-being in general. By signing up for a race, people are motivated to train, hence, you see a lot of runners practically anywhere.

And here’s one more good reason to train and keep on running. Mark your calendars for the #Run4urFuture. It is a race that aims to empower seafarers and overseas Filipino workers. Further, the beneficiary of the race are Tahanan ng Pagmamahal, Jesus Christ Cares for Cancer and World Vision.

2016 Sofitel Manila Half-Marathon

What does it take to make a difference in the lives of the children? Government and private organisations have put up institutions that support and provide health care, education, livelihood and other basic necessities for countless underprivileged individuals and families in various locations in the country.

One of these notable organisations is the Virlanie Foundation. Founded by French social worker Dominique Lemay, the Virlanie Foundation houses street children and impoverished families in the metro. Through the foundation, these children were given proper care and are able to go to school. Some of them have already finished a college degree and are giving back to the community by supporting the foundation. There are livelihood programs that Virlanie provide to the families who are under its care.

Such selflessness by Mr. Lemay has gone a long way, and even radiates to each one of us. It is in this aspect that Sofitel Philippine Plaza partnered with top running organiser Runrio, Inc. to stage a yearly Sofitel Manila Half-marathon, which is is now on its third year. What’s in it for us? And as runners, we can do our share by registering for the event. The proceeds of the race will benefit the children and their families under the Virlanie Foundation.

So, if you’re looking at making a new PR, join the Sofitel Manila Half-marathon, and make a difference in the lives of the street children that they may become better individuals for the good of their community.

Coming from Coach Rio dela Cruz, “We hope to continue engaging runners to join events like the Sofitel Manila Half-Marathon that not only is a hub for both amateur and professional runners but also serves a noble purpose – to make a difference in the lives of the children of Manila through the Virlanie Foundation.”

I am inviting everyone to once again join me in this worthy cause and let’s all do our share in helping others just don’t sleep on their dreams but making their dreams a reality.
