Last November 30, 2009, our Company's HR sponsored several running events, thus our Company's running team was born -- the Strathletes. One of the races that we have joined was the very 1st McHappy Day Fun Run in celebration of the McHappy Day, formerly known as World Children's Day - a global fundraising effort in support of various children’s causes.
|Join the Fun, and help kids read.|
The McHappy Day Fun Run is a special run to raise Php 1 million for the benefit of the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), the charity of choice of McDonald’s and its banner program, Bright Minds Read (BMR). Bright Minds Read is a program in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd) that provides reading toolkits to different public schools all over the country to help students learn beginning reading. To date, over 2,200 public schools nationwide are under the BMR program.
