International child-focused agency World Vision will hold its annual charity running event dubbed as World Vision Run 2017 in Cebu on July 16 at the Cebu Business Park as part of its 60th anniversary celebration.
In line with the theme “Caring for Children and Building Sustainable Communities,” this year’s edition aims to help provide sustainable livelihood projects in a World Vision-assisted community in Sogod, Cebu.
The projects 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 event promises a fun-filled day, with 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.
