25K CEO River Run Fund Raising Event

Saturday, 25 August 2012  |  Race Announcements

Most of us have participated in or heard about the Run for Pasig the past years. This year, Run for Pasig will be on September 30, but there will also be a 25K CEO River Warrior Run fund raising event for the same cause.

Last year, I participated in the 21K Charity Run where my friends and I were invited to run a different route from Bonifacio High Street to SM Mall of Asia. It was a blast! We ran through roads that were never opened to runners in the past. This year, I would’ve loved to join but it coincides with Berlin Marathon.

I do hope you can participate in the 25K CEO River Run and donate your race fee for the rehabilitation of Pasig River.

Press release from the organizers below…

Pasig run invite4

The Cable Channels & Print Media Group (CCPMG) & The ABS-CBN Foundation Inc., through the Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KPBIP), has been working closely with local government units and government agencies in the ongoing rehabilitation of the Pasig River and its tributaries. The awareness being generated through our various efforts is slowly but surely paying off.

This year, we are again counting on our continued partnership as we bring the rehabilitation work to the San Juan River sub-basin covering the cities of Quezon, San Juan, Mandaluyong and Makati. The 09.30.2012 Run for the Pasig River will take place on September 30, 2012 at the QC Memorial Circle.

In line with this, we are planning the 25K CEO River Warrior Run fund raising event. This run is unique as it will have a different and enlightening course. The run will start at the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel Driveway and will pass through the newly rehabilitated Estero de San Miguel and Estero de Paco, through the new Paco Market, and will end at the QC Memorial Circle. As a special treat, all 25K River Warrior Runners and VIPs will enjoy an exclusive breakfast, and some post run indulgence, hosted by CCPMG.

With this, we would like to ask for your support on this special advocacy run for the Pasig River.

A minimum donation of P2,500 per person or P20,000 for a team of ten (10) runners qualifies you or your team to join the 25K River Warrior Run. You may deposit your donation thru:
– ABS-CBN Foundation – Marathon
– Account Number: 3930117732
– Branch: BDO Scout Albano, Quezon Ave.

You and/or your team will be acknowledged through various on-ground executions (i.e. AVP at the finish line) as those who have made a contribution to the organization and to this project.
