MANILA – Save the Children Philippines is proud to be the beneficiary of Manila Marriott Hotel in today’s #RunWithMe2019.
Run With Me is Resorts World Manila’s annual celebrity-led fun run for charity that brings people from all walks of life together in a race for charity. Save the Children Philippines is the beneficiary of Manila Marriott Hotel.
The funds raised by Manila Marriott Hotel during the #RunWithMe2019 will support the programs of Save the Children Philippines.
Katarina Rodriguez, Save the Children Philippines ambassador, led more than a thousand runners who believe every child deserves to celebrate birthdays and grow healthy, educated and safe from violence.
August 25 is a special day for the organization also as it marks the birthday of Save the Children’s founder Eglantyne Jebb, a remarkable woman who drafted the Declaration of the Rights of Children that became the basis for the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
“Birthdays are special events for children, we should make sure every child, especially those in the deprived and marginalized situations have a healthy start in life,” said Rodriguez.
Save the Children Philippines is a lead child-rights organization in the Philippines in development and humanitarian work.
