Every kilometer you run can make a difference in the lives of children in Cebu. Join us at #WorldVisionRun2017 as we run and raise funds to build sustainable communities in Sogod, Cebu.
As part of celebrating its 60th year of “Caring for Children and Building Sustainable Communities”, international child-focused agency World Vision will soon hold its annual charity running event dubbed the World Vision Run 2017 in Cebu on July 16, 2017 at the Cebu Business Park!
In line with the theme, WorldVision Run 2017 aims to help provide sustainable livelihood projects in a World Vision-assisted community in Sogod, Cebu. These projects will include the establishment of nine (9) Community-Managed Savings and Credit Association (CoMSCA) groups, construction of a multipurpose building, and provision of livelihood start-up kits such as vegetable production, hog or chicken raising, massage therapy, masonry, and food processing.
The Run also aims to raise awareness and support to its recently launched advocacy campaign – It Takes a World to End Sexual Exploitation of Children. The campaign aims to empower parents, caregivers and children, to support frontliners, rescue operations and legal interventions, and to support safe shelters and reintegration programs for rescued children.
Similar to previous World Vision runs, this year hopes to showcase fun-filled, informative and interactive booths with special participation from supportive celebrity ambassadors and advocates such as Gretchen Ho, Joyce Pring, Gelili Viktor and other ambassadors to help raise awareness about World Vision’s cause and campaign for the protection and the well-being of children.
