It’s that time of the year again when thousands of families and individuals from around the country run for the benefit of literacy. Now on its 8th year, the highly anticipated Stripes Run 2017 is happening in Cebu City on November 25, 2017 at Garden Bloc, Cebu IT Park.
My son joined the McDonald’s Stripes Run last year and I am so happy that our family will be joining again this year. It is such a great opportunity to teach the kids the value of helping others because more than just a day of active lifestyle and fun, if you run, you are also able to help grades 1 and 2 public school children learn how to read through the Ronald McDonald House Charity’s (RMHC) Read to Learn program.
Proceeds will be used to help public school children learn to read through the Ronald McDonald House Charity’s (RMHC) Read to Learn program.
To date, Ronald McDonald Read To Learn has reached over 8,000 partner schools, trained 28,000 educators, and helped close to 12 million students all over the Philippines. This initiative, in partnership with the Department of Education, aims to raise the literacy level among Grade 1 and 2 public school students.
Register yourself and your family for the McDonald’s Stripes Run from October 13 to November 23. Registration is simple with these three options:
- Fill out the registration form and pay at select McDonald’s stores.
- Download the form on mcdostripesrun.com.ph, and settle the registration fee at select McDonald’s stores.

Each registrant will receive a race kit, which includes a pair of the iconic red and white striped socks, a singlet, a race bib, and a stub for a free McDonald’s breakfast meal at the venue.
