Shoes to Cebu in the Philippines
Not only does running bring us together it also facilitates great things.
We had a request to give running shoes to a project in Cebu City (The Philippines) for two groups of children where running activities and programs were being implemented. The first group is composed of sexually abused girls (6-18 years old) who are victims of incest and are housed in the Cebu Hope Center. The second group is kids with cancer (6-18 years old) who are supported by the Kythe Foundation for psycho-social care.
Running was to form part of the therapy for all of these children. We gave them 56 pairs of shoes and here is the reward!
