The fun run, organized by Athletes in Action (AIA), was held on July 7 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Among others, AIA’s partners also include Fila, the Kapuso Foundation and the Department of Education, which also explains the wide participation of students from Metro Manila. In all, AIA, iCare and other partners convened 12,000 participants for the fun run.
