Organizers and sponsoring officials of the 2013 Tempra Run Against Dengue, set on Nov. 17 at the Quezon City Memorial Circle, will also lend a helping hand to the victims of typhoon "Yolanda."


"Originally, part of the proceeds of this advocacy run will be used to purchase anti-dengue modalities. Now, we will also help, in our own humble way, those who were affected by typhoon Yolanda," said Tempra senior product manager Cleo Roda Nodado.

"We will donate cases of bottled water, milk, medicine and many other items from our various sponsors. We know that this is a modest help, but we still hope these will go a long way in efforts to alleviate the plight of our fellow Filipinos," said project manager Matt Ardina of the organizing Subterranean Ideas.

Organizers of the advocacy run will also accept any kind of donation — from clothing, medicine, food — from the runners, who simply have to bring them during race day. A portion of the stage will be allotted to the donated items.

Toby's Trinoma and Toby's Mall of Asia are the registration partners of the run also backed by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, Philippine Sports Commission, Green Cross, Medicard, Gemilang4U International, Business Mirror, Health and Fitness Magazine, Coca-Cola and the National Capital Region Athletic Association The Daily Tribune
