McHappy Day Stripes Run 2015: Ready, Set, Read!

Did you know that our much-loved McDonald’s is a very passionate advocate of child literacy in the country? The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Philippines has touched over 11 million children through their flagship program, ‘Ronald McDonald Read to Learn’.

The famous red stripes has come up with this year’s big event to raise funds for the literacy program through the McHappy Day Stripes Run. Yep, we are all invited to run for a cause, people! A very good cause at that.

McHappy Day Stripes Run 2015 is open to everyone. This year’s event is even bigger than anyone has ever imagined. One will happen in BGC, Taguig City on November 28 and another round will be hosted in People’s Park, Davao City on December 5.

You don’t need to have any professional experience with marathons. Of course, some distance training might come in really handy to avoid injuries. The organizers have thought of everything. There are several distance brackets to choose from so that anyone can participate. The categories are for 1k, 3k, 5k, and 10k; regardless if you’re a kid, a teen, or an adult, there’s one that will fit you just right. You can run with your friends, your whole family, or even on your own. Remember: this is for a very, very good cause.

It’s not even a hassle to register for the event. All you have to do is fill out the form from any of the selected branches or online at When that’s done, settle the fees based on the bracket you chose, and you can claim your race kit immediately after.

Race categories include:

  • Catch Hamburglar 1K (8 years and below) – Php 400
  • Run Grimace Run 3K Children (15 years old and below) – Php 495
  • Run Grimace Run 3K Adult (16 years old and up) – Php 495
  • McDonald’s Family Dash 3K (2 kids under 15 years and 2 adults) – Php 1500
  • Early Birdie 5K (16 years old and up) – Php 795
  • Ronald McDonald Challenge 10K (16 years old and up) – Php 995

Each kit includes a McHappy Day shirt, McDonald’s red and white striped socks, stub for a free McDonald’s breakfast meal at the venue, and a race bib. I’m really gonna treasure those socks. LOL!

But the fun won’t end there! After the race, participants can make their day even more enjoyable by visiting the activity booths at the venue. It’s all about making the most out of the day. And when you come home tired and maybe a little sore, you can go to bed with a smile, knowing that you helped a child have the opportunity to learn to read. If that’s not fulfilling enough, I don’t know what is.
