The month of March in the Philippines is declared as fire prevention month. The monthlong celebration aims to increase public awareness on ways of preventing fires and saving lives. As their way of supporting this advocacy, TXTFIRE Philippines, a non-profit foundation, will hold its first TXTFIRE Fire Run dubbed as Takbo Laban Sa Sunog (Run Against Fire) at the SM Mall of Asia grounds on May 27 at 4AM.
Aside from raising fire safety awareness, proceeds of this fun run will also be used to install icebox equipment in hospitals and institutions all over Metro Manila. The box is a fire alarm equipment that uses SMS or text messages to transmit fire alarm directly to TXTFIRE Control Center, a quicker way to respond to fire emergency cases.
There’ll be 3K, 5K, and 10K categories. It also features by company, school, community, etc. and the bombero groups as special categories.
Your participation will surely be a big boost to their Helping Filipino Saves Lives and Properties campaign.
