My Inbox have been receiving a lot of mails lately and I am just glad to be able to have some blogtime this “holiday Monday” to be able to share almost everything! This one’s btw from Mr. Jazzrunner himself, Sir Rene. Hope we can all support their race as this one, as the title says, are for the orphans. Kids will forever have a soft spot in a mom’s heart such as mine. Read on for the details!

The Race For the Orphans is all-geared up for the staging of its February 12, 2012 run at the Camp Aguinaldo Grounds.
The AFP Educational Benefit System (AFPEBS) together with Rundezvous Events, Inc. have joined forces for AFPEBS’s various programs which include law-mandated programs, such as the Republic Act 6963 which is the awarding of scholarships to dependents of soldiers who were killed-in-action. This specific law awards free tuition, miscellaneous fees and stipend every school year to approved grantees. The AFPEBSO takes pride in the fact that the continued support and assistance from generous partners has resulted to thousands of children sent to school.

A RACE FOR THE ORPHANS

A race for the orphans, a race for your hearts! A very special race for the month of the heart—The Race For The Orphans will stir the Camp Aguinaldo Grounds in the still misty morning of February 12, 2011 each not only to experience running the peaceful grounds of the military camp but to take part in answering the orphans cry for love and compassion.

It is with this aim that Rundezvous Events Inc., will stage this event that will provide scholarship grants through “I-Hope”, a trust fund that will support the educational needs of these orphans of soldiers killed in action in Mindanao and for future grantees of the AFP Educational Benefit System (AFPEBS).
Each runner pays a modest registration fee of P600.00 for the 10k run and P400.00 for the 5k run. Inclusive with this fee is a nice running singlet available in various sizes, a Timing tag, race bib number and a goodie bag from our sponsors.

Our registration Centers will be at the Secondwind Running Stores in Ortigas and Quezon City; ROX at Bonifacio High Street and at A Running Circle (ARC) along Quirino Avenue corner Roxas Blvd., Manila.

“We shall leave no soldiers’ orphan behind”. This is the AFP Educational Benefit System Office’s (AFPEBSO) tagline, an organization which deeply recognizes the heroism in each Filipino soldier. It is one of the morale and welfare outfits of the Armed Forces of the Philippines that grant educational benefits both to the military personnel and their dependents with the aim of helping them secure a brighter future. As it recognizes our soldiers’ heroism, especially of those who lay down their lives in protecting peace, AFPEBSO gives priority to the orphans of Filipino soldiers who were killed in action.

We’ll see you at Camp Aguinaldo on February 12, 2012!
