Last April 17, I attended the media launch of Backbeat Run for A Cause at Abe’s Restaurant in SM Mall of Asia. We got to learn more about the organizer and the beneficiaries of this fun run.

It is in partnership with Brother Philippines, spanning for more than a century its technology and innovation have evolve overtime. Brother is known to delivering new technology and customer satisfaction on different printing, scanning and sewing machines.

The two world leaders in technology coming together to produce the first ever “Backbeat Run for A Cause 2017”It’s good to know that the organization who will benefit from this run for a cause is Kythe Foundation. 

Kythe is a non-profit, non-stock organization aimed towards improving the quality of life among hospitalized children with cancer and other chronic illness. They are the first and only group of trained professionals here in the country that offers the Kythe Child Life Program and as of today, they have provided psychosocial support to over 8,000 children with cancer and other chronic illness and their families since 1992.

Let me tell you more about this run for a cause:
