Run for a Cause : Run For Odyssey by CDO

If there are causes worth supporting, these are those that aim to help other people who need it most. I am not a professional runner but I run for leisure and exercise once in a while. So when I was invited to join a media launch for CDO Foodsphere Inc., I immediately jumped at the chance to help out in my own little way. 

I like how big companies like CDO Foodsphere Inc, who is behind CDO, San Marino and Highlands food brands support causes for children's nutrition. 

This year, in celebration of their 40th Anniversary, one of the giant companies in the food industry is going to stage a fun run dubbed "CDO @ 40: Run for Odyssey". Thousand of CDO Foodsphere employees, industry partners, loyal customers and supporters are expected to join the run. 

Here's a little rundown about the cause and HOW YOU CAN JOIN:

What is CDO@40: Run for Odyssey?

The Run for Odyssey is an event organized by CDO Foodsphere, Inc., and has become a tradition of celebrating fun and good health. Run for Odyssey is a CDO way and expression of loving and caring for others.  Proceeds of this exciting run convention go straight to the Odyssey Foundation, a non-profit organization created to formally continue providing individuals new hope into their lives by giving aid and assistance. Therefore, when you run for Odyssey you not only get up to the challenge of proving yourself in your chosen run category but you also help nourish the lives of thousands of needy children and families in the country.

"We wish to cap off this year's celebration through a meaningful activity that signifies our thrust of continuously nourishing the lives of Filipinos." Says Jules Burton, Senior Manager for Human Resources Department of CDO-Foodsphere. "Proceeds of the event will go to the supplemental feeding programs of the OFI." Burton says.

By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!
