A couple of weeks ago, I posted about the Race and Shine charity run event whose aim is to help create opportunities for adults with autism. I personally support their advocacy reason why I also made time to attend the bloggers’ gathering for this event. The event will be held at the Fort Bonifacio on November 21, 2009.
Details can be found on my previous post and additional details below.

The event’s press release:
RACE & SHINE
A Charity Run to help others help themselves
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” – Chinese Proverb
Let It Shine Foundation invites everyone to help create opportunities for adults with autism by joining its RACE & SHINE charity run event on Saturday, November 21, 2009 at Fort Bonifacio.
Money that will be raised from this event will fund research for a specific purpose: that of providing vocational training and other work opportunities for adults with autism, such as supporting the creation of programs for small and medium sized companies to employ individuals with autism.
Most meaningful provisions for individuals with autism end upon leaving school, but the Let It Shine Foundation hopes to change this by developing vocational programs that give individuals with autism equal opportunities to work.
Support will go both ways – not only will there be skills therapy programs for the adult with autism, training and assistance can also be given to business owners who want to determine how they can create these work opportunities.
The race itself will have four distances – 3, 5, 10, and 15km plus a special 3km relay best suited for beginners and families. Children as young as seven years old can participate. Individuals with Autism are also encouraged to join the event!
Registration can be made at R.O.X. (Recreational Outdoor eXchange) at Bonifacio High Street (NOVEMBER 12-19, 2009) and ongoing now at ALL TERRA, Club 650 along Libis (near Eastwood) until November 18. Registration Fee is Php500.00 per runner.
Major sponsors NIKE PARK and MASSAGE BY US will be giving away prizes for the winners of the race. Prizes will also be provided by PLANET SPORTS, THE ATHLETE’s FOOT, TOBY’s, RUNNR, CPK, and CEBU PACIFIC. VITWATER will be the official drink of Race & Shine. This event is also brought to you by LBC, IPANEMA, RIDER, PAK PRIME and ORIENT FREIGHT.
