Resorts World Manila's (RWM) head honchos and personnel assembled bright and early at the Emperador Stadium in Taguig recently to participate in the Give Me 5K Fun Run—a charity event they themselves organized with the aim of raising at least PHP1 million for its beneficiaries; namely the Pasay City Pasay Social Welfare Department and Buddhist organization Tzu Chi Foundation.
Led by RWM President Kingson Sian and RWM Chief Operating Officer Stephen Reilly, senior executives, managers, and rank and file members of the integrated resort pledged to make a donation and run five kilometers around the stadium, along with friends from the industry who also made donations and joined the activity for a good cause.
"To end our fifth anniversary celebrations, we thought it would be a good idea to do something we've never done before," explained RWM Chief Operating Officer Stephen Reilly. "On the 5th of October at exactly 5AM, we ran five kilometers and raised PHP1 million for our chosen beneficiaries as our way of giving back to the community."
Among those in attendance were sports personality Chino Trinidad, who also served as emcee during the event, as well as reigning Miss Resorts World Manila Nikita McElroy and Pinoy Big Brother's Robi Domingo.
Proceeds generated by the fun run, which exceeded PHP1 million, will be divided among the said beneficiaries.
