    aww kasabay ng RU2. I will try to give here kahit sa RU ako tatakbo pero ang mga namamahalan sa RU e dapat dito na lang. We have to help Gabby.

      Hi JP,

      Thank you very much for including Gabby in your thoughts.

      Yes, this is a Charity Run for my son Gabriel who is suffering from a disease called SSPE ( Sub-Acute Sclerosing Panencephalitis). It is a degenerative disease caused by a persistent measles virus. In a matter of 6 months, Gabby was disabled by this disease and until now there is no cure. However, he was advised of a STEM CELL ( the latest technology for terminal illnesses) but the cost is very huge. We need million already. As Gabby is very brave and willful boy, he deserve it. We hope that you could help us gather runners for his Charity Run. Should you need a registration form, please let me know when and how to hand them over to you. Kindly take a look at Gabriel’s website (though not yet updated) for further reference. Thank you.

      Gabby’s mom,

        • JP says

        • says

          Hi Yashane,

          What I am doing with the Takbo registrants is I send them the registration form and they just deposit the payment to our bank account. Once the payment has been done, we will deliver in person the running kits.

          Please give me your email address should you be running.

    • sheila delicano says

      Hi Andy,

      If you could see the reply I sent to JP about Gabby, that is his details, or better yet, take a look at his website for further reference.

      Please help us in this charity run for Gabs.

      God Speed,
      Gab’s mom

  3. jaypz says

    hindi po ba masyadong mahal ang 900 for 10k tapos 450 lang for 5k? mas mahal pa po sa RU yung 10k. gusto ko sanang tumakbo kung mas mura lang yung 10k eh. I’m sure mas madami ring makakatakbo kung mas mura yung 10k. hope you will consider it. :)

    • sheila delicano says

      HI Jaypz,

      Would you mind telling me about the 10K cost of RU? I will communicate this to the organizers.

      Gab’s mom

      • sheila delicano says

        Hi Jaypz,

        Please be informed that we will be lowering down the 10K cost to Php550 only. We are working on the revisions of the details and we will repost it.

        I hope to see you there.


  4. notsooldrunner says

    please re-evaluate the price for you to encourage more runners. 550 for 10K would be reasonable.(just a suggestion)

    • sheila delicano says

      Hi all,

      Thank you for this info. Let me coordinate this to the organizers and I will get back to you.

      Thank you very much.

          • sheila delicano says

            Thank you very much. we will post also the registration form and you may just send us the through email so you dont have to go to the booth. Then if you want, we may just collect from you the payments, side by side by giving you the running kits.

            Thank you very much.

          • sheila delicano says

            BTW you metioned Batch 88. Are we from the same school?!! If so, thank you very much and it will be easier for me to get in touch with you…perhaps personaly, the better.

            On Sat and Sun (April 21 and 22) I will be in the sports event venues to manage the booth.

            Thanks again!

        • notsooldrunner says

    • sheila delicano says

            The registration is alreaday on-going. We will post also the registration form and kindly just send back to us. Then once we get your details as well as you jersey size, we may just collect the payment either we collect it from your office/house or you may just deposit the payment to our organization’s bank account.

  5. JP says

    Hi po. Suggest ko din po sa inyo na maglagay ng event posters sa mga bulletin boards ng mga gyms sa mga malls like Slimmer’s World, Gold’s Gym at Fitness First sa SM at Trinoma at iba pang malapit na malls.

    Baka medyo stingy sila or magcharge ng fee pero try nyo na lang po iconvince na para sa batang nangangailangan talaga. Kung meron jan pwede magpost sa neighborhood gym nila, okay din yon. Good luck po ulet ate Sheila

    • sheila delicano says

      Hi JP,

      Thank you so much for giving us ideas. we need it since we are new to organizing this kind of event. Really for charity lang kasi.

      Hope to see you there JP!

    Hi Sheila,
    Can I just show up on the morning of the run and bring a small donation for your gabby? I will also run never mind if walang singlet or lootbag or freebies and medals. Request lang ng hydration kahit 2 points along the route of the 10k(kahit water lang k na yun)
