Five years ago, on September 2007, I ran in the first Subic International Marathon (SIM). Being a newbie in the sport of running, I only did the 10K race category. That was fun since I ran with fellow runners from the impromptu running group known also as Happy Feet.
extribe, Inc., organizer of the race, will stage the annual competition dubbed as a Run for Fun & Transformation.
SIM has been actively involved in community development work in partnership with the Christian Officers Reform the Police Service (CORPS) Movement Foundation, a faith-based group which is deeply involved in creating God-centered, service-oriented and family-based communities. By tapping its legion of volunteers, the Foundation has offered different programs on anti-drugs campaign, values formation, health and wellness advocacy, strengthening family relationship among others to various communities in Metro Manila and regions in the country since 1992. These programs have significantly contributed to the inculcation of values and virtues among children and youth thus transforming many lives and building safer communities.
Your generosity will deeply benefit the advocacies attached to the CORPS Movement Foundation, Dilaab Movement Foundation, and Bukas Loob sa DIYOS Covenant Community of Subic Bay Freeport Zone, the beneficiaries of this yearly event. Foremost in these advocacies is the care and formation of abandoned, underprivileged and extremely poor children.
