ABS-CBN anchors and talents gave their full support to help raise funds for the education of calamity victims when they ran with more than 2,000 people at DZMM’s “Takbo Para sa Pamilyang Pilipino 2016,” at the Quirino Grandstand last Sunday (May 29), which started at 4am.
“It’s Showtime” host Karylle Yuzon, with rocker husband Yael Yuzon, and Nikki Valdez led the celebrities at the 17th edition of the DZMM Takbo, that also had ABS-CBN Integrated News and Current Affairs head Ging Reyes, broadcast journalists Jorge Carino and Niña Corpuz, and several DZMM anchors and Radyo Patrol reporters run in one of the race categories, which included 3k, 5k, 10k, and 21k. DZMM anchors Winnie Cordero and Ahwel Paz were also there to bring fun and laughter as hosts of the pre-race program and awarding ceremony.
Co-organized by RunRio, the run was for the benefit of young Filipinos who were affected by typhoons that hit the nation such as Ondoy, Habagat, and Sendong. DZMM believes that every member of the Filipino family is a winner through education. This is the 17th year that DZMM is holding a fun run to raise funds for a special beneficiary, making it one of the oldest fun runs.
