PaRun ng Cowboy for Cottolengo Filipino

Fun runs are- as the name implies- simply fun. But what is more noble are runs for a cause. Not only do you have a good time and healthy exercise, you are also able to contribute to a worthy charity.

Last April 17, I attended the media conference of PaRun ng Cowboy for the benefit of the kids of Cottolengo Filipino. Before this, I was not aware of this home for abandoned, disabled children in Montalban, Rizal.

But as the Spanish priest Fr. Julio Cuesta delivered his message, I was very touched by the struggles and hardships, (particularly making ends meet, as the costs are high for the food, medicine and staff salary,) faced by this NGO (non-governmental organization). They need all the help they can get! For more information about them, see http://cottolengofilipino.com/

I realized that indeed, runs for a cause like this one, are a big aid. Half (which is already a big thing) of the proceeds from this event will go to the orphanage. Other  unscrupulous "for a cause" runs or products that claim that they will donate to whatever charity only give a tiny little fraction of money to their beneficiary.

This run is also timely for Golden Pizza Inc., (of  Shakey's, Project Pie, Dunkin Donuts and Racks, Cowboy Grill is their sister company). Golden Pizza Inc. was founded on September 10, 1974 by Leopoldo L. Prieto. They are celebrating their 40th year anniversary, while Cowboy Grill, established in 1994, is on its 21st year.

PaRun ng Cowboy for the benefit of Cottolengo FIlipino is made possible by: Cowboy Grill, Pinoy Aspiring Runners, Beep and these sponsors:

They accept catering and functions. I cannot forget that when I was working for a pharmaceutical company, our Christmas party was held here.
