Last Saturday, November 16, 2013, almost 1,000 runners came together for ONE RUN: A Run for the Victims of Typhoon Yolanda. This coincided with Bull Session 3 for TBR ULAH Dream Marathoners.
We’re happy to report that we collected a whopping P615,000 in cash donations from the runners that morning. 100% of proceeds will go to our beneficiaries: Javier, Leyte via The Master’s Light Foundation of Anthony & Maricel Pangilinan and the 6 Islands of Agutaya, Palawan via triathlete/missionary Philip Leroux. (Update: P515,000 was donated to Javier, Leyte November 20 and P100,000 will be donated to Philip Leroux on November 22. I’ll be posting photos of the check turnovers within the week for transparency.)
