The Run-For-A-Cause consists of varying distances at 1, 3, 5, and 10 kilometers with registration fee pegged at P100 (12 years old and below) and P200 (adult), P150 (student) and P200 (non-student), P300 (student) and P400 (non-student), and P400 (student) and P500 (non-student) respectively.
“2013 was a year that brought out the heroism of ordinary Filipinos, answering to the needs of our kababayans who were victims of the Zamboanga siege, Bohol earthquake and Super Typhoon Yolanda. The people of Region 3 can once again help them, this time, in their road to recovery and rehabilitation,” Ramos added.
