When we hear of runs, we already know that it is a fun activity that demands focus, commitment, and preparation to reach the finish line. But there is more than that.

Months before my ill aunt Helen was taken back to the hospital, I have heard that she joined a run. Shame on me for I was not there to cheer for her-- I might be somewhere else again sleeping.

Running and other physical activities help reduce stress while earning extra mental health points. Aside from the physical benefits of raising one's fitness and confidence levels, a fun run is also a great way to raise money for charity.

AffiniTea Philippines, the tea that binds, will be boosting the Filipino runner's high through a fun run aptly dubbed as the "Brown Race" at the CCP Complex on December 14, 2014.

The race aims to deepen one's faith, identity, and love for the country by standing firm to the key characteristics that identify the uniqueness of Filipinos among other races. The race will benefit the mothers and children of Grace to be Born Foundation.

Grace to Be Born is a ministry dedicated to saving the unborn from abortion, providing sanctuary to unwed pregnant mothers in crisis, and temporary shelter for abandoned babies. From 1979 to the present, they have ministered to more than 200 mothers in crisis who lived in the GTBB shelter and delivered babies.
