Ayala Malls’ Wrapped in Love

Wednesday, 14 November 2012  |  News + Promos

I attended the Ayala Malls’ Wrapped in Love press conference yesterday as an ambassador of Hero Foundation. In behalf of Hero Foundation, I was asked to share a little bit about Hero Foundation and how we can help orphans of fallen soldiers this Christmas.  It was a pleasure to be with other Hero ambassadors present in the event, namely Piolo Pascual (Papa P.!), Nikki Gil, and 6cyclemind.

Ayala Malls will be having its Christmas Kindness Sale where some of the Hero ambassadors have donated items that will be sold to the public.  Funds will go to Hero Foundation.  In all Ayala Malls as well, you’ll see donation boxes where you may donate cash to help an orphan.

Now, if you’re a runner, perhaps you would like to pledge a certain amount for every kilometer you run.  We’ve encouraged our TBR Dream Marathon runners to do this on their marathon on February 24, 2013, but you’re more than welcome to help as well!  After all, it’s the season for sharing!  Click HERE to find out how.

 

Nike We Run MLA: Win a 10k Race Kit and Run in my Shoes

Wednesday, 14 November 2012  |  News + Promos

I would’ve given anything to run Nike We Run MNL on December 2, 2012, but Unilab Active Health will be flying me to Angkor Wat Half Marathon on the same day.

Here’s the thing: I’ve got a Nike We Run MLA 10k race kit waiting for me AND I wanted to post a little race report, too. So, I came up with the idea to throw a little contest for anyone who would be interested in “running in my shoes” (figuratively speaking so please don’t expect me to hand you some shoes!) and taking my place in the race and reporting about it after here on TBR.  (Hey, if you do a great job at this, I’m thinking you could be my official “Run-porter” for future races.)

If you’re game, here’s how to join my TBR We Run MLA Run in my Shoes contest:

PRIZE

  • 1 free race kit for We Run MLA 10k
  • Feature on www.thebullrunner.com for We Run Manila 10k Race Report.

MECHANICS

  • In 2 to 3 sentences, tell me why I should choose you to “Run in my Shoes” for Nike We Run MLA 10k.
  • Post the answer in the comments section below.
  • Only 1 entry per person.
  • Only applicable to runners within Metro Manila.
  • Winning entry will be chosen by TBR. Criteria for winning entry: content, originality, wit, writing style
  • Contest ends Thursday, November 15, 2012, 9:00AM
  • Winner will be given 1 complimentary race kit to We Run Manila 10k. Winner agrees to personally run the race, take photos, and write a race report for feature on www.thebullrunner.com. Article must be submitted by Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012. Minimum of 300 words.
  • Winner will be posted here and will be notified via email.

Good luck and may the best writer/runner win!

AND THE WINNER IS…BARDMAN!  Congrat Bardman for winning 1 Nike We Run MLA kit and the chance to have your race report featured here on TBR!  Looking forward to reading it!  I’ll email you soon.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  I promise to keep you in mind for other “Run-porter” opportunities 🙂
