Strike a Pose! Share your blessings!
Running Photographers will hold a fun run on December 10, 2017 at the CCP Complex, Pasay City to celebrate the art of sharing, touching lives and making a difference. As a prelude to the Christmas Season, the event aims to raise funds for the benefit of Senden Home Foundation, a “home for homeless boys” in Binganonan, Rizal.
Aptly called Strike a Pose Fun Run, the event will feature different photo stations along the route. Runners will have the opportunity to have their “running moments” captured by our photographers at every station.
To add more fun to the run, the organizer and its sponsors will be raffling off a pair of Hoka shoes during the event. There will also be a mini-competition for best photos showing the runners’ best poses during the event. The mechanics will be posted at the Running Photographers’ Facebook page (www.facebook.com/runningphotographers). Team Soleus Philippines will also be leading the Zumba Reggaeton.
The fun run, sponsored by Lightwater, Vitamin Boost, Toby’s Sports, and Soleus, and powered by RG Events, will have three distance categories – 3kms, 5kms, and 10kms. The registration fee entitles each runner-registrant to a race bib and an event shirt. Likewise, finishers will also get a finisher’s medal and an assortment of freebies from the event sponsors.
With the fun run, Running Photographers aims to encourage running enthusiasts to keep an active lifestyle while at the same time share their blessings to the less fortunate. It wants to focus more on instilling into the consciousness of the participants how they can help in their own little way. As such, there will be no cash prizes but top finishers for each category will receive gift packs and giveaways from our sponsors.

The beneficiary of the even is Senden Home Foundation, Inc. in Binangonan, Rizal. Dubbed as “home for homeless boys”, it provides services and assistance to homeless children and street children.
The Foundation has programs that include the reception and temporary shelter for street children and homeless children, and residential care and training for their families. With these, the children are given access to education, home-life training including health and hygiene, and sports and recreation. It also has programs for post-residential care and grown-up league to make sure that the Foundation keeps constant contact with its former residents as they continue their lives outside Senden Home. The components of the program include assisting the children and their families in the reintegration process, providing educational assistance, and helping the former residents become independent.
It is recognized by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) as “a legitimate social welfare agency for homeless children, street children and deserving individuals.” Currently the shelter has 17 children under the care of by 13 staff members and one volunteer. Most of these children were referred to the Foundation by different local government units in Metro Manila, DSWD, and Missionaries of Charity.
Under its post-residential care and grown-up league programs, the Foundation is providing financial assistant to 67 scholars at different levels from elementary to college, as well as various forms of assistance to a total of 57 families.
