RAT RACE: Run Against Human Trafficking

I started joining fun run a few months ago. It started as a prizes from a contest that I join but liked it so much that I continue running whenever I could. Joining fun run usually entitle you to pay certain fees. I don't mind though for it benefits somebody or something. I just want to share to you one of the fun run that don't just give a certain percentage to its beneficiary. Zonta of  Ayala Makati  host a fun run for the benefit of Visayan Foundation. As commencing activity for the Commitment Week, the RAT Race will be held on March 13, 2011 at the Mc Kinley Hill in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
