McHappy Day Stripes Run 2015

I never joined a fun run. I don't think that the idea of running a few kilometers under the heat of the sun is fun. However, when I've heard of McHappy Day Stripes Run I got interested to join because of the iconic striped socks  there is a category for a Family run meaning I could drag along Mike and the kids. Also this fun run is for a cause, it would help more Filipino kids learn how to read. Through the Stripes Run in Davao and Manila, McDonald's aims to raise 2 Million Pesos to share the gift of reading to more kids nationwide. McDonald's has touched lives of 11.5 million students among 7,500 partner schools.

Last November 28 at People's Park, more than 2000 Dabawenyo runners joined the first ever McHappy Day Stripes Run in Davao.  It was hosted by Jackie Lou Blanco and Mikee Aportadera.

The mood was very festive when we got there with all various activity booths like Birdie the Tower, Ronald Recall, Photobooth and Face Painting. It certainly looks like a big birthday party than a fun run and my kids totally loved it!

The kids were busy playing but still had lots of energy for the race. We joined the McDonald's Family Dash 3K which we finished in almost an hour, Hurray! We really had fun and look forward to McHappy Stripes Run in the future. Each of us brought home cool shirts, iconic striped socks, loot bags and of course wonderful memories while helping the kids in need.
