Why should you take part in this race?

After attending the Yamaha Run For Heroes Blogger's Conference, they have committed to give 1 Million Pesos to The HERO Foundation.
What is HERO Foundation?

HERO Foundation was organized by the late President Corazon C. Aquino in collaboration with her former administration’s Defense Secretary General Renato De Villa. As there was a growing and continuing requirement to help the families of fallen soldiers, they approached some business leaders of the country and appealed for help. Among the well-respected businessmen who responded to the call were Don Jaime Zobel de Ayala, Henry Sy, Washington SyCip, Patricio Lim, and Raul Concepcion. The business group then established HERO FOUNDATION INC.

HERO stands for Help Educate and Rear Orphans. The Foundation was registered on August 23, 1988 with the Security and Exchange Commission as a non-stock, not-for-profit organization.


From the Chairman, Antonio T. Aquino:

HERO Foundation has been operating for more than 20 years now and has supported many military orphans by providing annual educational stipends. Although it has been quietly realizing its vision and mission, we believe that we can further improve our support facility in order to reach out to more beneficiaries.

The growing number of military casualties has left more families in need and more orphans unsure of their future. Sadly, our Foundation can only accept a few applications for scholarship every year.

To address the increasing need and challenge of providing for more, we are embarking on a fund-raising program which will hopefully help realize our goals. This website is just one of the ways by which we can reach out to bigger, global community. We hope this website brings you closer to our cause.

We invite you to become part of the HERO community because together, we can make a difference in the lives of these children.
