DZMM is mounting the second annual “DZMM Takbo Para sa Karunungan,” a fun run that will benefit scholars from Sendong-hit Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, on March 11, 6 a.m. at the Quirino Grandstand.
Continuing last year’s advocacy for education, the event will be for the benefit of 25 students from Cagayan de Oro and 25 more from Iligan who were robbed of their chance to study when Sendong devastated their cities. It will also raise funds for the continued scholarship of the 25 Ondoy victims who were chosen as beneficiaries of last year’s run.
DZMM started organizing such an event in 1999, when it launched the “DZMM Takbo Para sa Kalikasan”. The run, which was annually held until 2010, was in support of several campaigns for the environment such as the continued rehabilitation of the La Mesa watershed and the Pasig Rehabilitation Project through ABS-CBN Foundation’s “Bantay Kalikasan”.
