Globe Run4Home: Running to build a stronger nation

() - February 19, 2012 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines - Committed to continue the positive impact that it has started, Globe Telecom stages the Globe Run4Home 2012 on March 25. Now on its fourth year, the race gathers an even greater momentum as the annual charity fun run will be hosted by the Queen City of the South.

Newbie runners and professionals alike eagerly look forward to participating in one of the biggest running events of the year. Through Run4Home, they are united not only by their love for the sport but also by the opportunity to contribute to building sustainable shelter for those in need, especially the victims of Typhoon Sendong.

“The Globe Run4Home is more than just a fun run. Any running aficionado knows that this annual charity run always has something new to offer each year. This will be our first run in Cebu to bridge various communities in need – from typhoon victims to endangered species. We hope to get the support of our customers in Cebu so that together we can help others for a better nation,” shares Yoly Crisanto, head of Globe Corporate Communications.

Chasing change

This year, Globe continues to help Gawad Kalinga and Habitat for Humanity Philippines in their institutional mission to provide housing development projects for their respective communities nationwide with an urgent assistance to the victims of typhoon in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro.

Also attending to an organization organic to the host of the race, Cebu Biodiversity Conservation Foundation (CBCF) joins the beneficiaries of the event. CBCF works for transformative solutions by empowering the communities of key biodiversity areas to be accountable for their wealthy ecosystem.

Lastly, participants of Run4Home will be pleased to know that they will also be running to help preserve the habitat of the endemic yet world renowned Tarsier through Philippine Tarsier Foundation, Inc. 

Everybody’s race

Run4Home2012 makes it even more accessible for everyone to join. This year, registration fees per category are P300 for 3K, P400 for 5K, P500 for 10K, P600 for 15K, and P700 for 21K – the most affordable registration rates ever in Globe Run4Home history.

Race shirts in various sizes, race bib number, and timing chip are all included in the entry fee. In addition, the winner of the 21K category will receive a finisher’s medal. Since a part of the runner’s registration fees has been allocated for donation, runners get the chance to choose their beneficiary of choice bringing a more heightened sense of personal connection to the advocacy that fires their run.

To encourage even more participants, runners registering by group are in for a special treat. Additionally, runners of four running in the same category get to bring a fifth member for free.

Those who cannot participate in the run but wanted to donate to their chosen beneficiary can do so via Globe GCASH.  

Registration is now going on at Paseo de Ciudad located at the first level of Ayala Center Cebu. One may also register online via www.globe.com.ph/run.

Globe Run4Home 2012 is supported by Alaska, Fox Channel, Gatorade, StarWorld and Summit Natural Drinking Water. Minor sponsors include Cebu Marriott Hotel, McDonald’s, Rexona, and Timex, while the media partners are the Philippine Daily Inquirer, The Philippine Star, Cebu Daily News, The FREEMAN, Newsbytes, Radio GMA, and SkyCable.
