It’s always fun to run for a cause, especially when it’s for those who need our help the most. They say we should use whatever gifts we have to help others. Well, God gave me legs to walk and run, I think I should use them. What about you?

I Run For Life 2013 is a project of JCI Manila to help fund for the treatment of leukemic children under the care of the LIFE Foundation. Full treatment of leukemia is available but costs around P440,000 per child. The goal is to come up with this amount to help sponsor these children.


Purpose of the Project

  • To raise awareness of cancer stricken children and the efforts of the Leukemic Indigents Fund Endowment (LIFE)
  • To give back to society by raising funds through a health and fitness event to sponsor and provide the medical treatment of leukemic children patients
  • To partner with public and private institutions who could partner toward the realization of the project
  • To provide a day of fun for kids special condition & their families

Benefits to the community

  • The project aims to give hope and to educate cancer-stricken children through a fun, learning experience
  • Ultimately, the project fosters a sense of duty of each and every individual to help his fellow beings.
