Heroes for Children Run 2016 / UNICEF's 70th Year

1:44:00 AM

Running for a very good advocacy such as Unicef is one of the many ways to help kids and/or their parents; At times, simple little thing like this can put a smile on their hearts...
Let's join UNICEF Celebrity Advocate for Children Anne Curtis on the second year of the Heroes for Children Run come September 4, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia grounds. 

From last year's run, about 3,200 runners raised PhP 3M for the benefit of the First 1,000 Days programme. The forthcoming event aims to attract more runners to raise funds for the said campaign. This 1,000 Days programme focused on prenatal and early childhood interventions to prevent undernutrition, including quality care for mothers, proper nutrition and complementary feeding and life-saving treatment for severe acute malnutrition. 

“I was deeply inspired by the support we received during last year’s run. From children with disabilities to serious runners, the public came together for a great cause. This year, I’m inviting everyone once again tobe a hero for children. All proceeds will benefit UNICEF’s First 1,000 Days campaign for children’s health and nutrition needs,” says Anne Curtis. 

Anne will also join the run for children as UNICEF commemorates its 70th year helping to build a better world for every child; "For 70 years, UNICEF has worked to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged, vulnerable, and excluded children around the world. Despite the many gains, the lives and futures of millions of children are still in jeopardy. In the Philippines, one out of three children under the age of five suffers from chronic malnutrition—the effects of which can be permanent, irreversible and even fatal after two years of age. UNICEF believes every child should have a fair chance at life,” UNICEF Philippines Country Representative Lotta Sylwander says.

Fans who want to support Anne but cannot physically run or be present on race day may donate on her personal SimplyGiving fundraising page at www.simplygiving.com/event/HeroesforChildrenRun2016.         
Ms. Curtis was appointed as UNICEF Celebrity Advocate in November 2014.
