FOR WHAT CAUSE?
The first leg of this fun run is just part of a series of activities aimed at making participants, and
the public in general, become aware of not-so-well publicized, but high impact, social
amelioration efforts for that certain segments of our community.
By addressing the trauma effects of certain events on people, White Flower wants to hype on its role: to be an instrument of alleviating the situation of certain segments of the community by way of providing socio-economic, and even psychological support, to people in need.

CONCEPT
Filipinos are known to be hardworking and resilient. Against all odds, they work together in order to move together. What we need to do is to utilize our full potential. Filipinos can look forward to a brighter tomorrow, once they know what we can truly achieve through our own means.

White Flower rebrands itself as a sports liniment providing comfort and quick ease of pain better than any other product in the market. To begin, WF will be challenging participants with a – 21K Race and side events 16K, 10K and a 5K.

SOCIAL IMPACT
By identifying specific sectorial needs and by providing the needed support to these segments, events like this will come a long way to uplifting society in general. Fun run is one the means to bring people together to make a statement, with common interest, and with the appropriate communication messages, to create ripples effects to move people’s mind-sets from lethargy and indifference (and even ignorance) towards the realization that we, as Filipinos can, together, do something for each other, that we as a people can realize that we have nobody else to turn to but ourselves. Ultimately, these advocacies are designed to impact on making the lives of the beneficiaries more productive, instead of traumatic, more pro-active rather than re-active, and psychologically, more rewarding for both advocates and beneficiaries.

ADVOCACIES AND BENEFICIARIES
By coming to aid orphans of military personnel killed in various encounters against local insurgents and terrorists, this advocacy will jumpstart the lives of children affected by these aberrations. The effects on soldiers risking lives for the communities’ peace and security will come a long way by way of boosting morale, and on children, by way of making sure educational activities are not disrupted.
After the peace agreement was signed in Mindanao, a contingent of marines started an advocacy of organizing football teams among kids of former rebels. Soldiers became teachers, while children are put into school. By making kids study first, before playing football, school pupils are forced to make studying a priority. For those kids doing well in school, most join the football teams, which were pitted against other rural schools in friendly tournaments. Members of winning teams were treated to trips to Manila, where kids were adopted by family volunteers, and exposed to City living and, of course, playing football. Imagine the thrill and delight among 8- to 12-year old kids who spent practically their whole lives in rebel camps at war, and who may go through a shift in mind sets towards peace and normal life in the future. The more institutional approach would be to support the often taken-for-granted local/provincial scouting movements, wherein children can be tapped to undertake socioeconomic (even, tourist assistance, tourist spot rehabilitation and other “commercial” related activities), environmental (tree planting, mangrove propagation, others) and even livelihood activities (agri based, skill- or service-oriented). Thus, similar undertakings will come our way for future events, and White Flower will be going the extra mile to spread the caring and social awareness being “powered” by people with changing mind sets out to make a difference for a better future for Filipinos in need.

SUMMER is the new Valentine’s this 2014 as Star Cinema, on it’s 20th anniversary, creates another milestone with Viva Films in the upcoming mainstream theatrical release of Maybe This Time – the biggest, highly anticipated, and most unforgettable romantic film of the season –  starring ABS-CBN’s Primetime King Coco Martin and Box Office Queen Sarah Geronimo.

Directed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng and written by Anton Santamaria and Melai Monge, Maybe This Time is a love story centered on Steph Asuncion (Sarah Geronimo) and Tonio Bugayong (Coco Martin). Steph and Tonio are polar opposites and the only thing they have in common is the fact that they fell in love with each other. Circumstances beyond their control eventually compelled them to  trek separate paths and lead different lives until they finally meet after so many years to confront an unfinished business that may or may not be resolved. After leaving Steph, Tonio became involved with an unlikely in the person of Monica (Ruffa Guttierez) who happens to be the boss of Steph in the PR firm she is working for.  Monica instructs Steph to transform and reinvent Tonio for him to fit into Monica’s world.

Will their burning passion with each other be finally rekindled or will they conclude a major chapter in their lives and simply moved on? Ultimately, Tonio and Steph will be reminded of the great significance of time and the inevitability of change in their relationship.
