III. THE HELP GIVE SHOES ADVOCACY
Many underprivileged Filipino children run, play, and go to school with no shoes to cover their feet. How could they emerge as tomorrow’s champions, when at present, every little step they take is already a challenge?
RUN TO HELP OTHERS RUN FOR THEIR DREAMS
The plight of the shoeless children was what moved the MILO® Marathon to spearhead “Help Give Shoes” in 2010. The country’s biggest race tapped its huge participant base to support the cause. For every runner that signed up, a portion of the registration fee went to a fund. In the end, MILO® matched the total amount collected and purchased 4,200 brand new pairs of running shoes for indigent school children nationwide.
RUN FOR 10,000 MORE
Like a champion who’d always break his personal best, the National MILO® Marathon aimed to surpass its 2010 achievements. Starting 2011, MILO® Marathon has upped its commitment from 4,200 to 10,000 pairs of shoes for 100 school children in 100 public schools all over the country.
