Last week I got a lot of messages from runners looking for a way they could run and at the same time help out Typhoon Yolanda victims. Say what you may about just donating the money you could have used to register at a race, but it’s always better when everyone gets what they want: money for aid, and a good race.
The St. Luke’s Run for Wellness on December 7 aims to pull in experienced and first-time runners to run for a cause. Not only can runners take a step towards their own wellness goals, but they also can unite to help bring relief and rehabilitation to areas stricken by the typhoon.
St. Luke’s Run for Wellness on December 7
The Run for Wellness to be held at Bonifacio Global City features 3K, 5K, and 10K distances at a flat registration fee of P750. All proceeds will be donated.
The fun doesn’t stop at running. Among the stations that runners will encounter during the race include a Water Gun Station where marshals will spray runners with water along 100 meters, a Color Me Blue Station where blue powder will be thrown as runners go through the course, and an Air Blower Station where runners will be dried off and blown away as they try to reach the finish line. Other activities await participants such as a giant slide, creative photo booth and a balloon wall.
I’ve also got two free kits to give away, so stand by for the contest mechanics. I will post them next week!
