Greetings to all our Gabriel’s Symphony Foundation friends and supporters!
It is with great happiness that we invite you to the 9th staging of the Gabriel’s Symphony 12Hour Multi-Sport Celebration in Memory of Gabriel.
The main thrust of the foundation is to make a difference in the lives of children with special needs. These include children with cleft lip and palate and those who are visually and hearing-impaired. We have also been helping indigent children develop their potential, such as the children of Daang Hari and Marillac Hills, some of whom have shown potential as runners and athletes.

As always, we have prepared a lot of activities for everyone on Saturday, September 3 2011 at the Alabang Country Club. Some of these include:
1. One Hour Swim-a-thon
2. One Hour Run-a-thon
3. Two Hour Bike-a-thon
4. Triathlon for Adults
5. SuperTriKids Triathlon
6. Mile Run Races: Buddy Run and Walk Your Dog
All the details for the activities mentioned are on our website. We will also have demonstration games by the Younghusband Football Academy, and an Adventure Race for Daang Hari and Marillac Hills children. Timex and Alaska Milk are sharing with us their fun activity booths and puzzles for the kids as part of this.
For those who want to donate old shoes, swimbikerun.ph will also have a booth there. You may also want to check out our Recycling Depot Project: http://gabrielsymphony.com/?p=367

HI all! Here’s a great guide for those joining on Aug 13 2011. We are excited to give you all a great race!
I recently received an award from Cosmopolitan Magazine, as apparently I am a Fun Fearless Female, fancy that!
It was a great surprise having found out I won the readers’ poll and come to think of it, quite flattering as I don’t really know how many women I have reached out to… maybe more than I think, haha 🙂 Anyway we had a lovely evening with the other awardees who showed up, including Venus Raj, Cristalle Belo Henares, Anne Curtis, Andi Manzano, Frenchesca Farr, and Raissa Laurel.
Here are some of the photos my proud husband took…
We had the lovely opportunity to meet Jeff Galloway, Mr. Run-Walk-Run himself!
Thanks so much to Chi Running coaches Lit and Cliff for bringing him over to Manila 🙂

A couple of weeks ago I gave a run clinic for some blind kids and teenagers competing in the National Paralympics. It was my first time to do such a thing and the best way to describe it would be: eye opening. The clinic was organized by PAVIC, which stands for Parents of Visibly Impaired Children, and Pinay In Action.
I learned so much more from them than I was able to impart I think, but it was a good way of sharing. I would love to go back and work with them some more in the future!
Pinay In Action is holding a Christmas Party with Run Races and other games this Dec 11 in Daang Hari for the barefoot running kids. If you would like to participate by joining and helping out you can do this just by showing up and playing with them and/ or you can also give some gifts to make their day.
Here are the Christmas Party Shirts we will be giving them, worked on the designs based on Senator Pia’s idea.
Hope you can join us!!!
