McDonald’s Stripes Run: A race to promote reading

MANILA, Philippines – The striped socks are back – and so is the running event that allows you and your family to have fun while helping more children learn how to read.

McDonald’s recently announced upcoming dates for Stripes Run, a fundraising event that promotes bonding among families and friends and supports literacy among Filipino school children. There will be two legs this year – November 25 at the Garden Bloc, Cebu IT Park, and December 3 at McKinley West, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig. The event is organized in partnership with RUNRIO, the events company founded by running roach Rio Dela Cruz.

Stripes Run participants won’t just get to share an active bonding experience with family and friends. Proceeds from the run will be used to provide reading kits for Grades 1 and 2 public school elementary school students, through the Ronald McDonald Read to Learn Program.

“Because every registration helps give public elementary school children a brighter future, know that your participation in this fun-filled event goes a long way in helping fellow Filipinos in need,” said Marie Angeles, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities.

There are 7 categories to choose from this year:

Each registrant will receive a race kit, which includes a pair of the iconic red and white striped socks, a singlet, a race bib, and a stub for a free McDonald’s meal at the venue.
