Several races are held almost every week, some to raise funds and some just for fitness sake. This coming July 7, 2012 FILA and Athletes in Action (AIA) join forces to bring the biggest advocacy run to help raise funds for the rehabilitation of classrooms in Iligan city, which were badly hit by Typhoon Sendong back in 2011, Schools Run for School Rooms.
With 15,000 runners who have signed up to date, the Schools Run for School Rooms (SRSR) marathon will be gathering student-runners from major colleges and universities, to bring a glimmer of hope to Iligan city, where eager students have to do with makeshift classrooms as the school year starts.
Runners who will join this advocacy race will compete in 3k, 5k and 10k distance run on July 7, 2012 at the Bonifacio Global City.

Tomas (UST), Far Eastern University (FEU), University of the East (UE), Jose Rizal University (JRU), National University (NU), San Beda College (SBC), San Sebastian College – Recoletos (SSCR), AMA University, University of Makati (UMAK).
