CANCER WARRIORS RUN RAISES P500,000 FOR CHARITY
More than 3,000 runners gathered at the Ayala Terraces last July 28, Saturday, for the first ever Cancer Warriors Run 2018. The event started with warm up exercises led by Team Salonpas and Dance Diva Regine Tolentino, who co-hosted with DJ Tom Candy.
Ms. Jennifer Baylon of CWFI reminded the crowd of the cause being advocated, and talked about childhood cancer and how it negatively affects families who now need not just financial but moral support. She also said that the disease shouldn’t be a hindrance for the children to dream and lead normal lives.
With the support of our 10 partner suppliers and all the customers who registered to join the run, Rose Pharmacy was able to donate P500,000 to Cancer Warriors Foundation Inc. – an amount that can be used to buy medicines and finance the needed surgery and chemotherapy of the kids they support.
At the end of the event, the winners were recognized with medals, cash prizes and gift baskets. All participating runners brought home special loot bags from different suppliers. Raffle prizes were also given away to lucky runners.
