South Mansfield College on Saturday, 10th of September, 2016 held its very first Royals Fun Run. The activity gathered more than 300 runners composed of teachers, parents, students, alumni, staff, and organized running clubs of all ages and abilities.
With the theme, “Embracing the Growth Mindset,” children participated in the 500-meter run (wave 1) and took away freebies from one of our sponsors Growee & Ceelin. Wave 2 (3K) was a huge success as students with their family and friends ran together to complete the race which started from the entrance of South Green Heights Village covered court.
After the race, 10 kids were awarded the top 10 finishers’ medal and goodies from the sponsors. Family of runners, top 10 finishers as well as the youngest and oldest runners were also recognized. The run-for-a-cause is the first phase of SMC For Others (SFO) community service program. The proceeds of the activity were used to purchase nebulizers for the benefit of the OSCA Putatan Chapter.
The Fun Run was sponsored by Pepsi Cola Phils., Inc., Pediatrica, Inc., Asia Brewery, Inc., QCon Construction, Altaserve, Inc., and Phoenix Publishing House. The event was also supported by the PNP—Muntinlupa, YASDO, City Health Office, South Green Heights Homeowners Association, PIO Muntinlupa, Philippine Taekwondo Association, Mr. Ace Yambao, Dr. Charina Villena, and Barangay Captain Danilo Teves.
