Race for Cebu Description

Denise and Ivy Igloria are long time members of our Moon Joggers family and are from Cebu, Philippines.   They joined us in 2013 and have been inspiring and supportive members of our community.  Their family was recently hit by Typhoon Odette. Thankfully they are all alive and well, but their home suffered a lot of damage.  The following is from Denise:

"Hi Guys! We are all safe. No injuries only property damage. Our roof flew. We have no electricity and scarce drinking water. long lines in every gas stations, water refilling stations. internet and mobile communication are down in our vicinity. My daughter and I have to bike to the nearest mall 8 kilometers away to get the needed mobile signal and charge our mobile devices and lights. Cebu badly needs help. The last time Cebu was hit with a Cat5 storm was in 1990 Typhoon Mike 180mph similar path with Odette but was much stronger. Cebu survived that. We know we can survive this one too. Again, thank you for all your prayers and support."

We are really excited to rally around this running family and help raise money to pay for the cost of a new roof.  The race is called Race for Cebu! Sign up for this free race, and when you sign up there will be an opportunity to make a donation.  100% of donations will go to the Igloria family.   There will be no medals for this race, but there will be a digital bib that you can print out and wear when you complete your race.  Also, you can choose any distance you want to run, or walk, in honor of the Igloria family and all those suffering from the devastation of Typhoon Odette.  You can complete your race anytime between now and Sunday, January 2nd.
