Philippines Avon Walk/Run 2013
April 8, 2014
Crown Philippines participated in the Avon Walk/Run 2013, making it a fourth year in a row that the company was represented. The event, which promotes women’s health research, collected an impressive total of almost $500 million. Eighty percent of the money collected is targeted for research, and the remaining 20% is for events around the world to promote awareness.
Participation this year was greater than ever, with 80 members of staff participating, some with their families alongside them. The youngest family member to join in was just three years’ old!
An early start for all involved an energetic 5:00 a.m. awakening for the runners and a 7:30 a.m. departure time for the walkers. Every member of the team finished the event, and ended the morning with snacks and chats about their experiences, which all agreed had brought them closer together as a team.
We had a great time, and will participate again next time!
