If you wish to do some good through running, this may just be the right event for you. It’s Senator Pia Cayetano’s Gabriel Symphony, a 12-hour event in Alabang in memory of her son, Gabriel, who lived only until 9 months old. Proceeds from the event will go to children with disabilities and less privileged children.
Details of the event are posted below. To register, you may print the registration form below , fill up, and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I always support this event. The past few years, I haven’t been able to join due to conflicts in schedule but I do help promote it. The last time I joined Gabriel Symphony was way back in 2008! (Click HERE if you want to read about it or just see how skinny I was! Oh, to be young again! LOL) It was a great event with such a positive atmosphere. Looks like I’ll be joining again this year! Hope to see you there.
For TBR-ULAH Dreamers, Sen. Pia Cayetano has a special note for you in case you’d like to use the event as a training race:
Dear Dream Marathoners,
Congrats on your decision to sign up for the Dream Marathon! It may seem daunting, but I promise you every step you take will bring closer to your goal.
That said, I would like to invite you to do your long training run at our 12-Hour Multi-Sport Celebration, In Memory of Gabriel on October 12, 2013 at the Alabang Country Club. It officially starts at 6am, but the nice thing about this event is that you can start anytime and run any distance, depending on what your training program dictates for the week. Consider it a “catered” training day with refreshments and goodies at the end of your training plus it’s all for a good cause.
Gabriel’s Symphony Foundation is inspired by my son Gabriel who only lived for nine months. By participating in the event, you make a difference in the lives of children with disabilities and less-privileged children.
For only P1,000, you may also join the other activities of the day, and you will be given access to all-day goodies: mid-morning refreshments, lunch and afternoon merienda.
Hope to see you there!
Sen. Pia Cayetano
See you all there!
