The Hyundai RUN for a Cause kicked off on April 2, 2011 at the Quirino Grandstand to celebrate HARI’s 10th year anniversary. This first-ever automotive-sponsored fun run in the Philippines–and the first in the Hyundai global community–was held for the benefit of four iconic humanitarian foundations: Gawad Kalinga, HARIBON Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, and St. Scholastica’s Priory.
The RUN, which stands for Responsibility, Unity, and Nation Building, drew over 24,000 running enthusiasts from all walks of life who share in HARI’s advocacies for community development, economic growth, and environment protection.
This year, the Hyundai RUN will be reprised in one colorful and festive event to establish HARI as an upstanding agent of change for empowering Filipinos to lead productive and responsible lives, capable of building a strong and proud nation.
The RUN likewise showcases Hyundai’s commitment to bring special values and experiences in its vehicle offerings and services through the public launch of the all-new EON and the holding of training modules on responsible car ownership and road safety through Hyundai’s signature Car Wellness Campaign.
Hyundai at the forefront of social change. At last year’s Hyundai RUN for a Cause were (L-R) HARI Chairman Edward S. Go; Korean Ambassador HE Lee Hye-Min; HARI Chairman Emeritus Richard Lee; Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez; Richard Gomez; HARI President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo; Gawad Kalinga Founder Antonio Meloto; St. Scholastica Prioress Sister Mary John Mananzan; and Hyundai Motor Company Asia and Pacific Regional Headquarters General Manager Kee Moon Kang.
It’s back! RUN for free, RUN for a cause. The Hyundai RUN for a Cause on its second year is set to beat last year’s overwhelming success. The RUN, which was launched on April 2, 2011, drew an overwhelming crowd of 24,000 participants from all walks of life, and made positive buzz on the social network.
