For the third year, Mactan’s premier resort destination, Crimson Resort & Spa Mactan is organizing the Project Happy Feet Slipper Race 2015 happening on Saturday 18th July 2015.
PHF as it is called by many is a non-competitive team activity where participants wear flip flops and make a fun 3-5km walk and tackle different fun obstacles and challenges. It aims to gather funds forthe education and training of underprivileged children.
This year’s beneficiary is Bantay Bata 163 to support the Bantay Edukasyon Program, developed to support the educational needs of select individuals supported by the organization in various levels of education – elementary, high school and college.
The PHF slipper race initiative started in Cebu last 2013 in partnership with Singaporean based organization Project Happy Feet Ltd., set up since 2009 to empower the lives of underprivileged youths and children by supporting their education and training through fund-raising for education related initiatives and programs that positively impact them or their families. Related programs have positively impacted more than 5,000 children in Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Nepal. Two years ago Crimson Mactan brought the initiative to Cebu.
Last year’s slipper race gathered over 300,000 pesos and greatly helped support children’s educational needs in Northern Cebu which was devastated by the typhoon Haiyan.
“This year, we want to raise equal value if not more. We want to see the children we have started supporting in 2013 continue through their education. The first year’s slipper race was able to support 7 children to school for 2 years, and we hope to be able to continue supporting them this year” Crimson’s resort manager, Kristofer Quadros said.
In order to participate, you must form a team of five members – of any age, sign-up and pay the registration fee of P5,000. This year’s race includes 6 pit stops with unique team challenges. 100% of the proceeds go to Bantay Bata 163 for the Bantay Edukasyon Program.
