My kids are already grown-ups.  Still, sharing the happiness of running with the people that matter the most, the annual McDonald’s Stripes Run is the ultimate family bonding experience for us.

We were invited for a fun run clinic last November 8 to finally kicked off the Mcdonald’s Stripes Run this Dec. 3.

I would gladly like to join the said run clinic with Run Rio but I forgot to bring running clothes with me.  What I did was to took pictures for hubby then let him and others enjoyed it.

Even it’s just a day of active lifestyle and fun, one can be able to help grades 1 and 2 public school children learn how to read.

Now on its 8th year, the highly anticipated run will be held on November 25, 2017 at Garden Bloc, Cebu IT Park, Cebu City and on December 3, 2017 at McKinley West, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.

Proceeds will be used to help public school children learn to read through the Ronald McDonald House Charity’s (RMHC) Read to Learn program.

To date, Ronald McDonald Read To Learn has reached over 8,000 partner schools, trained 28,000 educators, and helped close to 12 million students all over the Philippines.
