Kindness indeed has no finish line. With the success of Resorts World Manila’s (RWM) 2019 fun run for charity Run With Me X which raised over Php4 million in proceeds for the benefit of five charity institutions, the integrated resort continues to extend its corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts even further this time to various sports communities and the Philippine Air Force (PAF).
Through the help of 2016 RWM Lucky Person of the Year awardee and Olympic Silver Medalist Hidilyn Diaz, RWM was able to donate 1,241 Run With Me singlets and 455 hydration bottles to over 14 donee weightlifting gyms all over the country, and to members of the PAF.
The move intends to provide athletes and airmen with proper gym apparel and hydration bottles which can help them curb their personal training and fitness costs.
Among the beneficiaries of the Run With Me donations are Bohol Weightlifting Club, Cebu Weightlifting Gym, Hidilyn Diaz Weightlifting Gym, Midsalip Weightlifting Gym, Quezon Weightlifting Club, Talon-talon Weightlifting, Cebu Weightlifting Association, Guiwan Weightlifting, Madayaw Davao Weightlifting, PEP Project Angono Weightlifting, Tagbilaran Weightlifting, University of the East Weightlifting, Magsaysay Weightlifting, and the Philippine Air Force.
Run with Me is RWM’s annual fun run which started as an employee wellness and charity activity which have grown into a full blown fun run for charity attended by thousands. This year, the event awarded cash donations to its selected beneficiaries namely the HERO Foundation, Right Start Community Development, Inc., Tahanang Walang Hagdanan, ERDA Tech Foundation, and EPCALM Adult Leukemia Foundation. Through the efforts of the Marriott Group and Mr. Ray Gibson, we were also able to extend donations for Save The Children Philippines and the Guam Homeless Coalition respectively.
