All four celebrities are joining TIKIM to support TFC and because the run will benefit many children via the feeding program of ABS-CBN Foundation International’s Bantay Bata (Child Watch). “I’m really excited to spend time with our fellowmen, and because I’m running for something bigger than myself,” Fullido shares. 

“Aside from getting a good workout, we also get to help the children. You get to have fun while doing something good.” Cuenca adds.
