Run for the Warriors

run for the warriors

Children of the Cancer Warriors Foundation surely received a great delight as they were the recipients of a Run for a Cause event organized by ESA students. Nearly 300 enthusiasts participated in this fun run despite the forecast of stormy weather. Classes and work had actually been suspended the previous day.

Participants were given the choice to run 3K, 5K and 10K. The starter’s gun went off at 5 am at Venice Piazza, McKinley Hill. The fun run was organized by “Stand Strong”, the name the group of students chose for their fund-raising effort for Social Entrep Project.

The Run for the Warriors event surely was a success on many counts. All participants had fun, got a ‘cardio’ workout and of course, donated to a good cause. It was also a great experiential learning opportunity in project management for the “Stand Strong” group (below, with the Chairperson of Cancer Warriors Foundation, Inc., Mary Villanueva, 3rd from left).

Given the success, this surely won’t be the last time ESA students will be organizing a fun run event.
