MILO/Nestle Phils launched its MILO Marathon website last Sunday, June 13, 2010 and I am impressed with the site. But what impressed me most is MILO Marathon’s cause/advocacy of giving running shoes to underprivileged but deserving children in the elementary & high school grades.
This is one of the reasons why the registration fees for the 34th Marathon Races had increased as a portion of it goes for a small contribution from the runners for this project. For an amount of Five Pesos from each runner registered for the race, in return, MILO will donate an equivalent amount to the total fund raised.
For further details of this advocacy, I enjoin my readers/visitors to visit the MILO Marathon website at www.milo.com.ph. The video entitled “The Gift” is nice which I know most of you have seen it on the TV commercials.
Let us support this advocacy. Register now and join the 34th MILO Elimination Races & Finals.
See you on July 4, 2010 at 4:00 AM.

One thought on “Help Give Shoes”
Running for a cause is always a good thing. All things considered, the registration fee is still way cheaper than most marathons organized today. I would even advocate people to sign up just to support it even if they do not wish to run on race day!
