This is just so cute! Garfield will be having a fun run! Of course this event had kids in mind, but everybody’s welcome to join in the fun! The event: Garfield’s Runner’s Cup—sounds cool, right? 😀
Excerpts from the Press Release:
Garfield introduces not just a run, but also an exciting adventure for families and runners alike
Garfield Apparel believes in the importance of health, fitness, and wholesome bonding within the Filipino family. In line with the objective of developing a new experience for runners, comes Garfield’s Runner’s Cup this November 12, 2011 at Manila Ocean Park!
“We wanted to create a new dimension, and transform the usual fun run event. Expect a different kind of run. Expect a journey of fun-filled memories and experience catered for the whole family,” says Garfield Apparel Marketing Manager Kyle Ong.
Garfield and other cartoons will be joining the race. Not only that, but also well-loved Garfield apparel celebrity stars such as Mutya Orquia, Louise Abuel (100 days to Heaven), Clarence and Brenna (Star Circle Quest Grand Winners) and many more will be joining their fans during the run. To close the event, there would be a 2-hour culminating activity, the Garfield Zone. This includes a concert, food fest, fun games and activities, freebies and many more. There is something for everyone!
More than an enjoyable experience, participants will also be able to lend a hand to the community, because proceeds from this event would go to a children charity organization.
