Run For Literacy 2011

Last Saturday, during Mizuno Infinity Run, I saw a tarp along Bayani Road.  It turned out to be a fun run which aims to raise funds for the scholars of Millicent Foundation, Inc.  The event also aims to raise textbooks to be donated to day care centers in Manila which is why participants are requested to donate used and new textbooks

I will be honest, looking at the race details, it may discourage you from participating.  Why is that?  First is the registration venue.  There is only 1 site and I do not even know where it is.  Next is the registration fee.  The 10k fee is not exactly competitive compared to those provided by mainstream organizers.  Then there's the prizes. I know a handful of runners who joins fun run either as a form of living or as an extra source of income.  With that, this race will be giving non-cash as its prize for the top finishers

However, if you want a no-frills fun run and at the same time help send kids to school then this one is for you!

(Run For Literacy 2011) Due to the untimely but necessary postponement of the Run for Literacy Marathon Fun Run caused by unrelenting rains, high wind speeds and flooding caused by tropical storm Falcon during the last few days before the event date, for the safety of everyone involved in the event… we decided to move the date to July 9, 5AM same place, Rajah Sulayman in Roxas Boulevard in Manila.
