I had the pleasure of being invited to be a brand ambassador of HERO FOUNDATION. I’ve worked with them since 2011 when some of our proceeds from TBR Dream Marathon were donated to the foundation. Since then, all TBR events donate a portion of the proceeds to HERO. Last year, all proceeds from sales of our TBR merchandise went to HERO too. We also encourage our TBR Dream Marathon runners to pledge to run for HERO. It gives more meaning to our runs, to run for others, and it brings joy to those around us, which is a good thing especially with so much sadness lately.
HERO Foundation was founded by President Corazon C. Aquino and then AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Renato De Villa. It provides educational stipends to military orphans which helps keep them in school and covers other requirements such as school supplies, transportation, meals and even a portion of their tuition fee. Read more about HERO on their website.
Anyway, this has nothing to do with running (sorry!), but allow me to post anyway since it’s for a good cause. HERO will be having a concert in Naga and a golf tournament too. Hope you can make it!
