Chevron Philippines recently partnered with American Chamber Foundation Philippines, Inc. (ACF) for the 6th AmCham ScholaRUN, which aims to raise funds for 100 underprivileged but deserving Filipino students.
The event was participated by more than 3,000 runners—of which more than 200 were Chevron employees and another 3,000 more from American Chamber of Commerce member-company delegates.
Since its launch in 2013, ACF’s ScholaRUN has been helping numerous students fulfill their dreams and realize their full potential through education opportunities. Graduates of the program excel in their chosen fields, both locally and abroad.
Peter Morris, Country Chairman of Chevron Philippines, said, “It is with utmost pleasure that we once again partner with the AmCham Foundation for this year’s ScholaRUN. As a firm advocate of such causes, Chevron is able to strengthen its commitment in assisting the needs of underprivileged and deserving Filipinos.”
What’s good about the run is that finishers of the 3k, 5k and 10k categories each received a medal as a token for supporting this noble cause.
Mary Rose Rodriguez, who finished the 5k category, says: “It has always been a pleasure to be given the opportunity to run for a cause. Aside from promoting a healthy lifestyle, ScholaRUN allows me to contribute to national development in my own simple way.”
