In line with the theme “Caring for Children and Building Sustainable Communities,” the run aims to help provide sustainable livelihood projects in a World Vision-assisted community in Sogod, Cebu. These projects will include the establishment of nine Community-Managed Savings and Credit Association (CoMSCA) groups, construction of a multipurpose building, and provision of livelihood start-up kits such as vegetable production, hog or chicken raising, massage therapy, masonry, and food processing.

The Run also aims to raise awareness and support to its recently launched advocacy campaign – “It Takes a World to End Sexual Exploitation of Children.” The campaign aims to empower parents, caregivers and children, to support frontliners, rescue operations and legal interventions, and to support safe shelters and reintegration programs for rescued children.

Similar to previous runs of the organization, the event will showcase fun-filled, informative and interactive booths with special participation from celebrity ambassadors and advocates such as volleyball athlete Gretchen Ho, award-winning actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith, and TV hosts Suzie Abrera and Marc Nelson, to help raise awareness about their cause and campaign for the protection and the well-being of children.
