M.O.V.E. Manila Run 09


Thank you to Melissa Zamuco-Mercado, MD for this info.

The M.O.V.E. Advocacy of PARM
A PARM Visayas Council Initiative
“Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind.
For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” Luke 14:13-14

The Philippine Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine (PARM), established in 1974, is composed of medical doctors called physiatrists, specialized and trained in the field of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine. This year, PARM launches in Manila, the “M.O.V.E. – Making Ourselves Vigilant to Exercise” Advocacy, which combines a run for exercise awareness in the community, with a fundraising activity for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs), known as the PARM F.U.N.D. (Fund for the Upliftment of the Needy Disabled). Through this, PARM is able to provide for the rehabilitation and wellness needs of our indigent Filipinos.

The Run, called “M.O.V.E. Manila Run 09”, is scheduled this July 19, 2009, Sunday, at 5:00 in the morning, at the U.P. Diliman grounds. This caps the nationwide celebration of the 31st National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week. This is the first time we are taking the Run to Manila, having had the first 3 benefit runs in the Visayas (Cebu & Bacolod). This year, we expect a good number of wheelchair athletes to participate in the event.

We invite everyone to support this worthwhile cause either by participating and/or sponsoring a wheelchair athlete(s) to participate in the Run.

We hope that you can be part of the PARM M.O.V.E. Advocacy. Let us all support the plight of our disabled brothers and sisters.
