It has been almost a decade since I last remembered a FREE Fun Run, and that was a University-sponsored event held inside the campus. Fun Runs these days costs thousands of pesos to register, you’d be lucky if you find one with a registration that costs less than a thousand pesos. The hype, fad, “uso”, or whatever you call it is at fault for the pricey registration costs of these events. Thus, I would say it is a blessing that there is still a Fun Run out there that is not only free but also matches a 1,000Php donation for each participating runner to a public school’s Special Education Department. So to all those running enthusiasts out there, why not run for free and help kids in need at the same time?
Here are the Fun Run details:
Venue: Cagayan de Oro City, Freedom Kiosk (Kiosko Kagawasan), Divisoria Plaza
Start Time: 06:00AM June 19, 2011
Charity: Special Education Dept of City Central School
