FILA RUN to Raise Fund for School Rooms

Fila has always been one of the top in my mind when it comes to shoes. There was a phase in me that the brand name stuck with me also because of their endorser before Ms. Donita Rose. Fila now have bigger endorsers with Borgy Manotoc, Georgina Wilson and Tim Yap, better shoe designs, innovation, quality and value.

I recently attended an event of Fila at their newly designed store in Robinsons Galleria. The event is about the big advocacy run by FILA together with Athletes in Action (AIA) with one main reason. HELP RAISE FUNDS for the rehabilitation of Classrooms in Iligan City. Which was badly hit by typhoon Sendong which happened in 2011. 

The event was hosted by Tim Yap, who is also one of their endorsers. As share by Coach Toti Andes, 15,000 runners have already signed up and counting and Different student-runner from colleges and universities will also be joining the run.

Even though school has started already, the effort and the cause can never be more timely than now. 

Just a few background on FILA, since 1911, FILA traces its roots from Biella, a province set at the foot of the Italian Alps. Unbeknownst to many, this small town brand is big on corporate social responsibility. At the recently concluded 2012 FILA Polo Cup, project “500 for 500” was launched by FILA President Butch Albert to help Typhoon Sendong victims once again by donating 500 pesos to 500 families for every purchase of Skele-Toes.
Skele-Toes is FILA’s latest line of revolutionary active footwear that is fast raising many eyebrows and causing the curious to utter #whattheheckisthat? For us at FILA, it’s simply a shoe that changes the game. Rock at the gym or at the party, Skele-Toes is just about the only shoe that fits – and Tim, Georgina, and Borgy all agree!

Now, with the upcoming run on July 7, you can either go for their new shoes, FILA SWERVE & FILA FLOW or go for the SKELE-TOES. Not only are the shoes functional and also with good quality but it is also affordable. Truly value for money. So purchase your pair now, helping other certainly is more fun with FILA.
