Join the World Vision Run 2013 and help make a child's life better!

On June 23, 2013, Run Rio and World Vision are organizing a run at the Bonifacio Global City. This is aims to promote World Vision and help thousands of children in their education and their communities' development. Join now!

Details of the race are here.

World Vision is my favorite charity

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. This organization is close to my heart as I currently sponsor a child in their care. They support a community and find sponsors for each kid in the community. As a sponsor, you only have to donate P600 monthly (P7,200 annually or P20 daily). The organization will take care of helping your sponsored kid. You could get in touch with them and offer them inspiration to doing great at school, leading to a better future for them and the country. Who knows you might be sponsoring the next president or hero.

Meet Janine.

She's my sponsored child. I started giving P600 monthly to World Vision when I was fortunate enough to get a pay raise. Janine was Grade 1, then. She's now in Grade 5. From her progress card, she's doing great in school and she loves to dance. She also loves shoes. Every Christmas season, World Vision gives us sponsors an opportunity to give our kids and their family a great Christmas by purchasing an Noche Buena Package which contains a set of food and drinks for the season, as well as a gift for our kid. Janine always gets shoes. Once, she even proudly shared how she used the pair she got for a school dance.

Join World Vision Run now and help make a child's future brighter! If you can't make it on the run, consider sponsoring a child or making a one time donation. For more details, please get in touch with World Vision by visiting their website, calling (2) 3747618 to 28 or visiting their booth on the World Vision Run 2013 events.

Note: 100% of the proceeds are going to World Vision. Run Rio even waived their admin fee to support this great cause so don't think about the (registration) cost, think about the cause. Also if you are not particular with where the money goes, you'll experience a great race with Run Rio (as usual), wear a quality singlet and even bright home a rocking finisher's medal (for 21k runners only).
