They did it again! As early as 4 in the morning, runners converged on Robinson’s Galleria to take part in this year’s Citrineland Run for Gift of Life Year 3. The event was participated by people from all walks of life. From the child who came with the proud parents to walk 1KM, the little boy who managed to outrun men twice his size in the 3KM race. The Frenchman who came first in the 16KM category and made it look easy. The grandfather who joined the race with 6 of his grandkids, the man who travelled from Antique the night before. So diverse, and yet they were all there as one. On behalf of the many Heart Warriors of the Gift of Life, we wish to convey our heartfelt thanks for the multitude of people who came out to support the third Citrineland Run for Gift of Life. We are blessed that our message continues to resonate with the public and private corporations who have thrown their unwavering support by joining the run; raising awareness and funds for our Gift of Life program. While we hold dear the many firms and individuals who sponsored and donated to this event, the success of the run wouldn’t be possible without the unstinting support of our silent partners. People who worked in the background, sans acknowledgement, to man booths, deal with the frenzy of on-site registration, deliver kits, pick up payments, tally our record. They kept the wheel turning. A big thank you to the Emergency Rescue Unit Foundation (ERUF) for their reassuring presence and timely response when it was needed. To the ladies of Let It Echo who helped arranged the presence of heart warriors and parents, members of Rotaract Club of Cebu, who were constantly by our side, willing to lift our load. Mogu Mogu for giving away samples to all runners even though we gave nothing in return. And to the many employees of our members who took it upon themselves to work tirelessly; not because it was their job, but because they believed in our cause. May we, the few, who owe so many, and been blessed by your presence look forward to the next Run for Gift of Life; find you on the wings, ready to respond to our call again. God bless you all!
