Several months have passed since Yolanda struck the Philippines and altered the lives of thousands. Several people and families were left with nothing but the clothes on their bodies and a fighting spirit. Since then, government groups and volunteers have already organized various programs and ways to help the survivors. We’ve gone a long way since and a lot of people have already gotten back on their feet, however, there’s still a long way to go and a lot more to do, especially for the children.


This run will be the 15th run for a cause of DZMM but their first ever color run!



DZMM Run – Tulong Na, Tabang Na, Tayo na, Takbo Na Race Details:

What:        Tulong Na, Tabang Na, Tayo Na, Takbo Na

When:       May 4, 2014 (Sunday)

Where:      Bonifacio Global City (34th street)

Race Organizer:        RunRio

* This run is an advocacy of RunRio, hence, they have decided to WAIVE agency fees for organizing this run. 100% of the proceeds will go to the beneficiary!

Target Number:        10,000 Runners

Race Categories:     5k Color Run

Assembly Time:        4:00am

Gun Start Time:        6:00am

Beneficiary:  Chosen scholars from the victims of Typhoon Yolanda

*Public schools offer free tuition fee, however, children still need to spend money for their food and transportation. It is after all difficult to focus on an empty stomach. An estimated budget of Php 800 is needed to cover each student’s food and transportation, not to mention their uniform and school supplies. Through your help, DZMM and the ABS-CBN foundation will be able to help more children get proper education and give them a brighter future.

The Integrated Public Service will coordinate with social workers for Typhoon Yolanda affected areas and screen children and scholars who will benefit most from this program. Currently, DZMM is already helping more than a hundred children complete their education, these children will also be further assisted with the funds raised from this run.
