Red Cross seeks more participants in 4th Million Volunteer Run on Oct. 21
More people are encouraged to join the upcoming fourth Million Volunteer Run of the Philippine Red Cross on Oct. 21 at the Quirino Grandstand at the Rizal Park in Manila.
“Through the years, the PRC has always been at the forefront of disasters and emergencies, giving aid and life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable,” PRC Chairman Richard Gordon said in a statement. “By joining the Million Volunteer Run 4, you can help the Red Cross help more people to be more prepared to respond to disasters and calamities.”
“This is a run for humanity. We call it a humanitarian run for everyone,” he added.
The MVR4 aims to raise funds for the organization’s humanitarian causes, including the strengthening of PRC’s emergency and disaster response through the purchase of additional rescue vehicles and equipment.
Those who are interested in joining the run may register directly at the PRC National Headquarters in Mandaluyong City; at PRC Metro Manila chapters in Caloocan, Las Piñas, Manila, Malabon, Marikina, Pasay, Quezon City, and Valenzuela; or its chapter in Rizal.
Interested applicants may also go to Chris Sports Outlets at SM Manila, SM Sucat, SM North EDSA Annex, and Market Market Taguig until 7 p.m. on Oct. 19.
There will be no walk-in registration during the event. Aspiring runners are advised to register a week before the run itself to secure their kits.
