Run With Doctors - May 01, 2011

Here is another race by RunRio.Inc :

This will be a fund raising activity for the Philippine College of Physicians Foundation (PCPF), whose current programs and projects are the following: HERO Project, Tree Planting Activities, Researches, Advocacies. They also aim to educate grade school students about the dangers of hypertension which come from three main factors: smoking, not eating properly, not getting enough exercise.

Even as a runner, I am not exempted from this as I fail in two out of three aspects that lead to hypertension and high blood pressure. This will eventually lead to bigger problems in the long run: diabetes, cardiac arrest, stroke, etc. So I will do this run in support of this cause, but more importantly, I shall also try to exercise more, eat healthier food and get more sleep....after all, we only have one body. Let's not abuse it!

On the race itself, this will be held on Labor Day (May 01, 2011) at SM Mall of Asia grounds and will coincide with the annual convention of Philippine College of Physicians (PCP), where approximately 1,000 out of 5,000 doctors from all over the country will be in Manila for this event.

There are online and in-store (ROX) registrations which are until April 25, 2011 or until slots are filled up. Fees range from Php500 to Php600 depending on the race distance you are interested in.

Let's run with the Doctors... let's run for a healthier life!
