Good things come to those who sweat. A group of Security Bankers run together to develop and embrace an active lifestyle amid the pandemic.
As part of Security Bank’s 70th anniversary festivities, Security Bankers, along with partners from MUFG Manila, the Bank of Ayudhya, Bank Danamon, and VietinBank, challenged themselves to run 70+ kilometers to support Security Bank’s mission to provide educational opportunities for Filipinos. The event also celebrated the five-year partnership anniversary of Security Bank and MUFG.
To observe social distancing, those who participated in the “virtual races” had the flexibility to run anytime, anywhere. Every running opportunity needed to have the “3 Ds” of Distance, Date, and Duration – to qualify as part of the 70K needed.
Beyond building camaraderie among partners, the SBC Virtual Run also pushed participants to embrace an active lifestyle despite the pandemic. Further, proceeds from the Virtual Run contributed to the Transform and Family Academy Programs of the International Care Ministries’ (ICM) which uplifted the lives of poor families in Iloilo City, Philippines.
“Transform” is a four-month community-based adult education program built on the foundation of values, health, and livelihood. The beneficiaries were underserved families in Balud, Liloan-Zaraga. The “Family Academy” is a parent-child community coaching initiative in Calahunan-Mandurriao and Botongan, Estancia that empowers parents to become their children’s first teachers.
ICM will conduct regular home visits to the program participants to monitor their progress from the weekly trainings. They will also provide weekly fortified meal packs and address logistical concerns pertaining to the training sessions of the program participants.
This year, Security Bank and MUFG celebrate six years of strategic partnership that bridges global expertise with local talent.
