Malnutrition is still one of the leading health problems in the Philippines. Two out of 10 children under five are malnourished and ten million children die before their fifth birthday every year due to preventable diseases according to a National Nutrition Survey.
In their almost 60 years presence in the country, World Vision (WV) has taken great strides to ensure children enjoy the fullness of life they deserve. Hence charity event World Vision Run (WVR) is back for the fifth time not only to promote healthy lifestyle but also raise funds to help thousands of malnourished children.
The running event dubbed as Run for Health & Nutrition with an expected 7,000 participants is happening on June 26 at Blue BayWalk in Pasay City. It is co-presented by Runrio. Distance categories include 3K, 5K, 10K, 21K and a 500-meter dash for children. When you register for WV, you’re not only running for your own health but also for children.
