SGV Foundation takes another big step for education
SGV & Co. and the SGV Foundation successfully held their first charity race called First Step – The SGV Run for Learning on November 6, 2011 at the SM Mall of Asia Complex. The stormy weather did not deter the SGV & Co. partners, staff, clients and friends who gamely ran the 3-, 5- or 10-kilometer routes for a great cause.
First Step raised funds to benefit the Aklat, Gabay, Aruga Tungo sa Pangarap at Pag-asa (AGAPP) Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of basic public school education in the Philippines through the construction of better learning facilities. The turnout of some 2000 runners contributed greatly to the goal of building two classroom-libraries for public preschool children.
