On June 24, 2018, JCI Manila will hold its 2nd Run For The Mountains Charity Run for the benefit of the Indigenous Peoples Group of the Philippines and the Smokey Mountain Kids.

The event will be held simultaneously in two starting venues – Seascape Village (Manila) and SM City Iloilo (Iloilo).

The announcement was made yesterday at a media conference held at Mazu Seascape Village in Pasay City led by JCI Manila 2018 President Joaquin Esquivias, Director for Special Projects Gerry Hung, Director for National Relations Christopher Liao and RFTM 2018 Chairman Alvin Velasco.

The RUN FOR THE MOUNTAINS Charity Run will be divided into three race categories: 3K, 5K and 10K and top finishers will receive cash prizes but with the option of donating all or a portion of the prize to the cause.

Speaking of cause, helping indigenous people communities is one of the legacy programs of JCI Manila, a leadership development organization for young leaders.  They’re widely known for their outreach programs which are directed towards helping the marginalized sectors of the society. And while they’ve already conducted several activities to help indigenous people in the past, the charity run campaign is sure to be a big help in raising a substantial amount to fund more projects.

The target for this year’s run is to encourage at least 3,000 people to support the cause by participating in the race.

Aside from the race event, guests and participants can also experience first-hand how our indigenous peoples hunt, cook and go about their day to day activities in the venue.
