"Schools Run for School Rooms" by Athletes in Action and Fila

Did you know that Iligan City was among the places in Northeastern Mindanao that were worst-hit by typhoon Sendong? The typhoon ravaged the region with its heavy rainfall from December 15 to 18 left a total of PhP1,033,131,515,100 worth of damages in infrastructures, agricultural crops, and school buildings. Six months after the disaster, the situation in Iligan City remains bleak. Many people are still living in so-called tent cities and living off relief goods. As the school year starts, the children would have to make do with makeshift classrooms, as 12 schools and 136 classrooms in Iligan City were among Sendong's casualties.

Athletes in Action (AIA) believes in making positive changes in people’s lives through sports. That is why the international humanitarian organization of athletes is organizing an advocacy run on July, which proceeds will fund the rebuilding of the classrooms in Iligan City.
