Participants were provided race kits consisting of a race shirt, sunglasses and a complimentary loot bag, with finishers taking home a medal.  At the awards ceremony, CPI HR Manager Marife Jose received a plaque of appreciation as AmCham’s co-presenter of the 10th ScholaRUN.

“Chevron has been a strong supporter of AmCham Foundation’s education programs for many years now. The success of the ScholaCOLORun shows that people will come together for a fun and healthy activity while serving a larger social purpose,” shared CHI Corporate Affairs Manager Arlita Narag.

“Beyond financial support, we aim to foster an environment where every young mind has the opportunity to thrive regardless of their upbringing. With much gratitude, we thank Chevron for its generous sponsorship of the event and its continued support in our educational endeavors,” said President of ACFPI Edwin Feist.

“Chevron has a long history of fruitful partnership with the AmCham Foundation. AmCham espouses youth education and our collaboration for this event aligns well with our company’s thrust of bringing out the full potential of people. In addition to helping scholars via the ScholaRUN, we also promote wellness to our employees by supporting their participation in this annual run,” added CPI HR Manager Marife Jose.

Chevron and AmCham have helped host communities in Batangas acquire skills that help with employment both here and abroad. The two organizations have partnered for Chevron’s institutional Fuel Your School program nationwide, in training voc-tech scholars at Don Bosco Pugad, and co-presented the ScholaRUN since its inception 10 years ago.
