DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Motivated by the cause to help Filipino children in need, VXI Philippines showed its support to Tebow Cure Run 2016: Run to Fuel Hope- a fund-raising event organized by Tebow CURE Hospital last May 1, 2016 at SM Lanang Premier.
VXI quickly responded to Tebow CURE’s call to participate and be one of the major sponsors of the said event. Hundreds of VXI employees chose to spend their Sunday morning in reaching out to the community and help drive public awareness in promoting the hospital’s philanthropy.
Headed by Ms. Debbie Santos, VXI’s VP for PH Talent Acquisition and Corporate Branding, and Mr. Anant Singh, VP for Operations, the participants gathered in the venue as early as 4:00 am to participate in the 1k and 5k runs, with routes situated within Davao City.
“This is a simple company initiative that desires to help raise awareness about the pediatric orthopedic children from Tebow CURE, Davao,” said Mr. Anant Singh. “The activity inspires everyone, not only the VXI employees but also its community to take their love for running to a higher and more meaningful level. This is an opportunity for us to take a break from work and have fun while helping others.” he added.
Because of the support given by VXI community in this project, they were able to raise Php 106, 930.00 that can help fund the medical care for children with treatable conditions like clubfoot and spinal deformities.
Tebow CURE’s Development and Sustainability Officer, Vincent J. Bitana, expressed his utmost gratitude for the company’s participation in their fund raising event, which is also in line for their first anniversary.
“On behalf of CURE Philippines, Inc. (Tebow CURE Hospital), I would like to thank VXI’s active participation in helping us raise awareness and revenues to help fund our charity work. We were able to raise Php 440,000.00 less all the expenses incurred. The amount that your company gave [will be] used to provide life changing surgeries for physically disabled children.”
Alongside with the run, VXI’s new corporate logo was also revealed that morning. Shirts and visors with the renewed face of the company were given to all the runners as souvenir.
VXI’s participation in this charity fun run was just a proof that they’re living up with their current core values. This recently concluded event was just a portion of the bigger surprise that the company is planning to unveil in the coming months.
Tebow CURE Hospital is one of the primary outreach initiatives of the Tim Tebow Foundation. They’ve been providing pediatric, orthopedic and surgical care to children with treatable physical disabilities.
