Incoming: Run For Hope 6

Posted by on 28. September 2015

Baguio is among the best places to run with its cool climate and challenging terrain.  You get refreshed by the chilly breeze and your eyes gets visually rewarded by the Pine Trees and the mountain ranges you get to see along the course.  You get to experience that by joining SLU Run for Hope 6 on November 29, 2015 with 3K, 5K, 10K and 21K categories. You also get to warm your heart by joining this run as it would be a run for a cause benefiting SLU Centennial Halfway Home for Boys,  the Residential and Study Center for Children – DSWD-CAR in Wangal and poor students.

Run for Hope 6

The children are the hope of the nation yet not everybody is given a fair chance at growing up.  Some unfortunate children suffer in poverty. Some of them lose their way. Some become victims of abuse.  Some are short of resources for a good education.  Life is not fair for them but in our own little ways, we can help them have a better chance at life. Saint Louis University (SLU) is now back with its yearly advocacy of promoting fitness and resources to support the needs of the unfortunate.  This coincides with the Cordillera Administrative Region’s celebration of the children’s Month in November.  Let’s join hands against child abuse through Run for Hope 6, which is happening on November 29, 2015 at Burnham Park with 3K, 5K, 10K and 21K categories.   It carries a theme of  “Komunidad at Pamahalaan, Magkaisa Pang-aabuso sa Bata, Wakasan! (Community and Government should unite to end child abuse).”  The beneficiaries this year will be: the boys of Halfway Home, The children of the Residential and Study Center for Children – DSWD-CAR in Wangal, and poor students.  Celebrate children’s month by making a real action: making a difference in Children’s Life!

Let’s take long strides in fulfilling children’s dream.  This run is close to my heart as SLU is my Alma Mater and Baguio is my hometown.  I also was once a student supporting the same causes through outreach activities of SLU. I know how it warms kids’ heart to see presence of people who care and the little support they get in our visits.  Each runner gets to make the impact of the cause much greater.  You also get to adopt a healthy lifestyle by joining the run.   Baguio is among the best areas to run with the chilly weather, the scenic view of the Pine Trees and the mountains along the route, and the challenging terrain.  It’s a run that’s gonna keep your eyes feasted on the attractions while your legs gains the extra power of a good work out.  The run is also happening on a long weekend so this may be a great race-cation for people outside Baguio City.  Join the 6th Staging of Run for Hope and whatever distance you’ll join, it’s gonna be a really great experience.

    This race specifically for a halfway house for boys, I really hope will succeed. Because in the wrong influence, these boys could become criminals or drug addicts. I hope this race can fulfil its advocacy. – Fred

    Such a great advocacy. It is inspiring that they’re not just helping the unfortunate but also challenging participants to run with Baguio’s weather. Hard to sweat when it’s cold.
