VSO-PNA Kabahagi Run, April 25

Register now and be a Kabahagi!


Two years ago, runners tasted how it was to run inside Heritage Park for the very first time. This year, VSO Bahaginan, in its efforts to raise funds for its programs in the areas of disability work, secure livelihoods, peace building, youth volunteering and community exchange, and in partnership with the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA), will be holding the VSO-PNA Kabahagi Run 2010 at McKinley Hill on April 25, Sunday. It will have 3K, 5K, and 10K distances. This is the second time that VSO is conducting a fun run as part of its fundraising activities.

Around 3,000 runners comprised of various sports and running enthusiasts from amateur to seasoned levels and representing diverse sectors (NGO workers, nurses, company CEOs, managers, professionals, students, development workers, embassy peple, etc.) are expected to join the event.

This running event is being conducted to celebrate the volunteerism spirit of the Filipino as manifested in the volunteers that VSO sends to international placements in developing and underdeveloped countries who have given their lives and shared their skills in the service of others. It also pays tribute to the Filipino nurses here and abroad who keep Filipinos and other nationalities healthy and safe. For PNA, the run’s main event partner, the activity serves as PNA’s opening salvo as it celebrates the International Day of Nurses on May 12, 2010.

It is anticipated that this run will raise the profile VSO to encourage and provide Filipino professionals with an avenue to volunteer here and abroad as well as support the advocacies of the PNA. Partners of this run are Pocari Sweat as the main beverage partner, Men’s Health, CHEERS Foundation, Lake Island Resort, IP Ventures, First Metro Travel Inc., ROX, Chris Sports, and many more.
