Merry Christmas Runners

There are many things runners look forward to during the Christmas season. For one, runners always need a new gear, shoes or outfit and there are many on sale now. Secondly, the nice weather invites us to go out there and burn off the food we have all been feasting. Thirdly, the the decorations change the usual scene. The list can go on and on but the most important thing to remember is to be thankful we are able to do the sport we love best.

Merry Christmas!

A Serving Of Hope With Every Bowl Of Cereal

Nestlé Breakfast Cereals and the 57-75 Movement, with help from the iamninoy-iamcory Runners Group, are working together to improve the nutritional status and well-being of school children.  They have begun the project in the provinces of Sarangani and Pampanga through the Nestle Koko Krunch Breakfast Campaign.

A total of 4,271 elementary school children from Kawas Central, Alegria, and Alabel Elementary Schools will benefit from 42,696 Nestlé Koko Krunch cereal boxes delivered to the province of Sarangani. The whole grain breakfast cereals will be served to students in Grades 1-6 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from October 2010 to February 2011.

In Pampanga the Elementary schools participating in the breakfast campaign are: Tedodoro Tinio, AG Tinio, Don Pepe Henson, Don Mariano, Cutcut, Sta. Teresita, Sitio Pader, Pandan, Sapangbato, Virgen de los Remedios, Gutad, Palmayo, Don Ambrocio, EPZA Resettlement, Katutubo, Kamias, Villa Maria, Mawakat, and Target.

The campaign brought together private organizations with public institutions with the aim of addressing the challenges faced by the country’s public school system. According to the 57-75 Movement, the numbers 57 and 75 are symbolic of the current situation in the public educational system in relation to the state of education – 57 is the average score of public elementary schools in the National Achievement Test; 75, the passing mark, is the beginning of mastery. The reversal of numbers, from 57 to 75, is symbolic of what the Movement hopes to achieve: a reversal in the education crisis.

“We believe in every Filipino child’s potential to do well in school. This is why we are enabling communities by addressing the nutrition component of education programs through the work of the 57-75 Movement and the iamninoy-iamcory Runners Group,” said Joi De Jesus, Country Business Manager, Nestlé.
