After the last few years of restricted gatherings, this year, McDonald’s is once again inviting children, teens, and adults to get together and run for reading at the McDonald’s Stripes Run on December 18.
Since 2009, McDonald’s has been committed to its advocacy of helping improve children’s literacy. Through the previously-annual Stripes Run, McDonald’s raised funds for its charity of choice Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and its Read to Learn program. In partnership with the Department of Education, Ronald McDonald Read to Learn is a beginning reading program that aims to improve the literacy skills of grades 1 and 2 public school students by providing reading materials to supplement their learning.
This year, through the 11th Stripes Run, McDonald’s pledges to donate P1 million to the Read to Learn program. With this support, McDonald’s looks to give even more Filipino students the basic reading skills they’ll need to build their educational foundation.
The McDonald’s Stripes Run 2022 will be on December 18 (Sunday) from 4:00 to 9:00 AM at the McKinley West Open Parking, Taguig City. With seven race categories to choose from, participants of all ages and running experience are sure to find the category fit for them.
