Okay, I don’t know how to start but all I’m feeling right now is too much of an excitement. Why? I never imagine that in this event, I will be a Princess. Yes, you read it right! Not a prince but a Princess. This is an opportunity for me to be a princess as I will be running in Etude Princess Run in May, 2014. I love the colors too! PINK! Aside from running, I know that I can help many people especially children who are the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. It’s like hitting two birds in one stone, right?
In celebration of mothers and families in May, Etude House Philippines is holding a fun run dubbed as “Etude Princess Run.” It features 3K, 5K and 10K categories that will fire off on May 25, 2014, 5 am at 34th corner 9th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
“We encourage men, women, students, professionals, athletes, celebrities, health buffs and even, cosplayers to sign up and participate in the Etude House Princess Run. We want to bring together Filipino families for this fun event. We hope to see everyone enjoying with their loved ones on May 25,” said Etude House Philippines President Andrea Amado.

Race For a Cause
Proceeds of Etude Princess Run 2014 will support the YesPinoy Foundation, an organization founded and headed by actor Dingdong Dantes, Jr. that rally all Filipinos, of all ages and from all sectors and background, to support diverse advocacies and programs. The foundation aims to empower Filipinos to help those in need and to contribute effectively and efficiently.
YesPinoy Foundation (YPF) arose out of the simple yearning of an Edsa baby named Jose Sixto “Dingdong” G. Dantes III to help others, especially the youth, achieve their dreams of having a better life despite poverty and powerlessness . Yesterday, an Edsa baby started YPF as a concrete expression of his personal commitment and social advocacy. Today, YPF has become the leading organization of Edsa babies and their supporters, committed to harness the immense power of the people and the youth to make a difference in building a better future for young Filipinos.
“We are happy and grateful to partner with Etude House for the upcoming Etude Princess Run. The funds that will be generated out of the event and donated to the foundation will be used for the One Chair, One Child #UpuanParaSaKinabukasan Campaign, which we’re doing in
partnership with Lifeline Foundation,” said Dantes.

The One Chair, One Child Campaign aims to raise funds to buy school chairs for around 3,000 student survivors of Typhoon Yolanda, who go to Estancia Central Elementary School in Northern Iloilo.
“We chose YesPinoy Foundation as our beneficiary because their advocacies are very significant and relevant to Filipinos. We also hope to encourage whole families to make this event not only a fun bonding activity for everyone but also as an opportunity to support families who are in need,” mentioned Amado.
