CPC Half Marathon
Ash. On Sunday 25 September there will be another City Pier City run in The Hague and Scheveningen.
Indira Gerards will participate in this event on this day and has started an action to collect money for our foundation. She has started a donation page via the Doneeractie website with which everyone can make a donation so that they can contribute to our projects.
“In three weeks I will be running the half marathon in The Hague. I love how running events bring so many people together – a solo sport becomes a group experience, not just for the runners but for everyone coming out to cheer and show support to friends and strangers.
In that spirit I will be running for The Ama Namin Foundation. This charity, ran by my aunt and uncle, aims to support local projects in the Philippines focused on improving living and study conditions. Being half Filipina and working in education myself, I selected this specific project in which a local carpentry will be producing chair desks for a school of 400 students.
The first chairs are currently in the making, but more funds are needed to provide all students with a chair desk. Your support for this project is much appreciated! After the City Pier City 21K run in The Hague I hope to have raised at least €350 to donate toward this project.”
