August 21: Your Hero Run

In the month of August, we commemorate our heroes Ninoy and Cory Aquino who dedicated their lives to serving the Filipinos. It is this love for country and selfless giving that inspired us members of the iamninoy-iamcory runners to take our love for running up a notch by being heroes through our own simple ways.

On August 21, the day of Ninoy Aquino’s assassination, we invite you to do a ‘heroic’ run in your area.  The idea is to bring out the hero in each of us, whether it be raising funds for a person in need, a certain charity or if you can’t think of any, run for our beneficiary, the 57-75 Movement.

The heroic act may not necessarily be a monetary donation. It may be in other forms.  You can donate old books to a school and run the equivalent distance (in kms) of the number of books you donated.

Please share with us your hero story for that day and send pictures as well at iamninoy.runners@gmail.com. We will gladly post them in this site.

Although running is an individual sport, we can touch many lives.  Make a difference on that day.  Be a hero.
