Autism Society Philippines institutional member, PVI Foundation Inc., will be holding the “RUN4SPEC 2010, a Fun Run Awareness for Children with Special Needs” at QUEZON MEMORIAL CIRCLE (Runnex Area) on December 5, 2010, Sunday at 6am.


According to PVI Auditor, Jenni Lizardo, the foundation has been organizing this event since 2005. Under the heat of the sun, wearing runners attire – shirt, shorts, rubber shoes – holding the hands of children with disabilities, running together, added are cheering squads screaming “motivationals” at the top of their voices.


In line with this, PVI Foundation invites the members of ASP to join in this much awaited event. There will be 30 slots designated for registered updated ASP members. Registration is until December 1, 2010 only.


Category A: One (1) Child with Autism (CWA) and One (1) Companion for P100 will be collected (This fee applies to indigent ASP member families only). Fee inclusive of snack for CWA. Just wear your ASP shirt and kindly bring your ASP ID.


Category B: Paying ASP members, the registration fee is P250 per head. Fee inclusive of (1) T-shirt.



The PVI Foundation Inc. is a non-stock non-profit organization, composed of volunteer students and professionals committed to the welfare and development of CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS. One of the highlight activities of the organization is the Summer Therapeutic Camp every year.


Last April, Muneer and his older sister, Ate Thea, children of ASP Bacoor Chapter President Jan Peña, joined the 2010 Therapeutic Summer Camp, in Mexico Pampanga. The funds of this race will be use for the upcoming 2011 Therapeutic Summer Camp in Iriga, Bicol, a week before the Holy Week.


Witness how these kids become winners in their own way… We all care, we all are aware, so, we run for them and with them!
