BENEFITING: Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 24, 2013
I am running to raise funds for the Haiyan Typhoon relief and recovery efforts in the Philippines. My maternal granparents were from the region affected by this devastating typhoon. Tacloban, Leyte, Palo, Samar are places I heard about growing up. Images I had of town "fiestas", where people celebrated with good food, music, and pageantry, are replaced with utter destruction and desperation as seen in news coverages. I simply can not just sit back and not take action. Please join me in helping my grandparents' home towns rebuild and recover the spirit, pride and welfare of its people. Salamat Po.
Running For Good represents my personal pursuits of a lifelong healthy living and charitable work for the greater good. My goal is to benefit various charities through my participation in running events.
