THE City of Pasay celebrates its 150th founding anniversary by holding a run for a cause for the victims of super-typhoon Yolanda.
Dubbed 'Be a Santa for the orphans of Yolanda,' the event will be held on December 14 at the Astrodome. Starting gun is at 6 a.m., but call time is set at 4:30 a.m.
Major beneficiaries of the fun run are the affected families of the recent calamity that hit the Eastern Visayas region currently being sheltered at the Villamor Airbase Tent City under the care of the Pasay City Hall.
A total of five categories are at stake in the fun run being held in cooperation with Toby’s Sports and Roost, namely, 10K, 5K, 3K, 1K, and Santa sprint for kids.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind fun run that is relevant to this time,” said Christine Majadillas, brand manager for International Brands, Toby’s Sports, and Urban Athletics.
Jonathan Malaya, public relations and communications manager of the City of Pasay, and Atty. Paul Vega, Pasay City officer-in-charge for housing administration, said more than 2,000 people from the Visayas had so far been served food and provided temporary shelter at the Tent City.
“And we could even help more if we’ll be able to raise funds during the fun run,” Malaya added.
Registration fee is P750 for individual, P650 for couple, and P500 for group of five. Interested parties can register at the first floor of the Pasay City Hall, and in special branches of Toby’s Sports and Runnr.
