Incoming: BDO Race for Life

Posted by on 13. February 2013

BDO Foundation Inc.

We all know how typhoons and monsoon weather come and really cause a big damage to the Country.  That aside, you’ve got to admire the heroism and the community based support you get to see during the typhoon months. BDO Foundation Inc. was one of the Institutions in the forefront of shelling out resources to aide the Typhoon Victims in their housing needs.   Here’s a chance to run and support a noble cause in another staging of BDO Run For Life that’s open to all running enthusiast, those who’d like to jumpstar their career in running or even those who just want to spend time with family and friends doing a healthy activity.  There’s a 3K and 5K category where newbie runners can feel the satisfaction of crossing the finish line.  There’s a 10K category where an experienced runner get to try out the longer distance.  There’s a 21K category for seasoned runners to get a shot at their personal records or cover their needed long-distance mileage.  Of course, expect the speedsters in all categories after all this is a run.  You do all of this with the cool seaside breeze at Mall of Asia as your backdrop.

BDO has grown into becoming the country’s largest bank in terms of resources, capital, loans and asset base and they’ve gone on with the adage, “We Find Ways.”  Through Run for Life, they have indeed found another way to contribute to the cause of their foundation and at the same time come out with a race that runners would enjoy and be a part of.   It’s really good that aside from improving their bank services and offerings, they do a lot of Corporate Social Responsibility through their BDO Foundation Inc.  So it’s another Run and Help Event and I’m sure that each stride you make should contribute for this cause so Run for fun… Run for your Personal Records… Run for your family and  friends… and most of all, Run for Life.

    Thank goodness for the early start! From experience, a lot of the 21k races at MOA start pretty late, at 430am or so. This route also happens to be one of the hotter ones.

    those not joining the long run can wake up a little bit late… hahaha. kidding aside, this runs needs preparation, runners or not… so rest, diet and stretch those muscles before engaging. Yahweh bless.
