Top radio station DZMM is not a newbie when it comes to holding running races. They have been the ones behind the yearly “Takbo Para Sa Kalikasan” advocacy race. I should know as the first ever foot race I participated in was a 5k at a Takbo Para Sa Kalikasan race held at the Quirino Grandstand!
This year though, their race will kinda veer away from the usual and instead take-off from the advocacy which the whole ABS-CBN Group/Network have started – to raise funds to help the victims of Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan). To elaborate, the race which is dubbed as the “DZMM Tulong Na, Tabang Na, Tayo Na, Takbo Na”, aims to raise funds in order to send children of families, who were victims of Typhoon Yolanda, to school.
Other important tidbits:
- the race will be a “color run” race, the first for both RunRio and DZMM
- along the course will be a giant inflatable slide which participants will have to ride on as part of the route
- famous and well-loved DZMM personalities, news anchors will participate in the event
- RunRio will be working for this event for free as part of their corporate social responsibility
- Coach Rio will donate Php 200,000 to the cause if the race reaches the target 10,000 participants
Read on for the pertinent race details!
