Eggciting Race for a Cause

Did you know that one egg a day is good for your health?

Philippine Egg Board Association enumerates five valid reasons why you should have one egg a day. First, it helps you in weight management. Second, it provides muscle strength and prevents muscle-loss. Third, it makes your brain function better. Fourth, it maintains eyes’ health. Fifth, it contributes to healthy pregnancy for women.

Thus, Philippine Egg Board Association together with The Good Egg by Sarimanok is actively campaigning for one egg a day to every Filipino family.

In line with the celebration of “World Egg Day” on October, Guerilla Race helps these two organizations in bringing an exciting yet worthwhile activity to better promote this noteworthy advocacy. Known as “Eggciting Adventure Day”, this first ever event aims to encourage awareness about “one egg a day”. Highlighting this adventure is the “Eggciting Family Fun Run” which will happen on October 16, 2016 at SM by the Bay, Mall of Asia (MOA) Complex in Pasay City. The charity run aims to heighten awareness about the chronic condition of stunting and malnutrition in the country as part of the proceeds of the event will go to Save The Children Foundation.

According to the report presented by Save the Children Organization and Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI), the Philippines ranks 9th in the world for having the highest number of stunted children. Stunting has affected children; thus, the average has increased from 10 percent to 40 percent from 2013-2015 and is expected to rise in 2016.

Apart from supporting the cause to fight stunting and malnutrition, this run for a cause will also benefit soldier’s orphans to continue their education through the AFP Educational Benefit System Office.

Eggciting Adventure Day is open to all families with or without running background and can choose to run for the following race categories: 500-meter dash, 1K, 3K (individual and family), 5K and 10K race.

Race fees are as follows:
