McDonald’s to Hold 2nd McHappy Day Fun Run

Last November 30, 2009, our Company's HR sponsored several running events, thus our Company's running team was born -- the Strathletes. One of the races that we have joined was the very 1st McHappy Day Fun Run in celebration of the McHappy Day, formerly known as World Children's Day - a global fundraising effort in support of various children’s causes.

Join the Fun, and help kids read.
This coming November 28, 2010 (my birthday as well), McDonald’s is again celebrating the McHappy day and is inviting us with its "2nd McHappy Day Fun Run" at the Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio Taguig. It is the same venue where the 1st McHappy Fun Run was held.

    alfred, will you be running here again?

  2. sali tayo dito? sabay-sabay kasi sa nov.28. hirap magdecide. pero sa blogger's night sure yan, punta tayo!

  3. @Daves, last year nandun si McDo at ung kulay violet na mascot (dko alam name nya, hehe..)

    Pinag-iisipan ko pa kung alin tatakbuhin ko on Nov. 28, birthday ko din yun so I'm thinking of something exciting! :D

  4. @James, sa kaRUNungan nga sana ako tatakbo (Meralco), then nung nabalitaan ko itong McHappy, nagdadalawang-isip na ako ngayon kung saan sasali. :)

  5. @Madz, you are always welcome, pero... sabihin mo sa akin kung paano ka makakasama ;)

  6. A McHappy Day fun run. Now, that is very cool man. It's great to see kids run and how charities are involved with running as well. I have never heard of the McHappy Run, but will have to go out on a McRun some time after eating a big mac. Don't forget your Mcshoes before that race. Hahaha, had to throw in some humor. That is an impressive time for that 5k marathon. Take care man. Thanks for sharing. Btw, did Ronald run in his big red shoes? I bet he will get lots of blisters.

  7. @Sir Kenley, hahaha you really are a McFunny person that you always make me McLaugh my Mc out... When you go and have your McRun, don't forget to drink some McCoke afterwards, and oh... say hi to McRonald for me. Regarding the McHappy Run, McRonald did run a few meters back and forth on the starting line. And you know why he has such a big McShoes? Because it's where the big McBlister is placed, lol!

  8. Huhuhu, paano nga ba ako makakasama? Kelan kayo papadespedida run for me? ;))
