Run for a cause with Platronics’ Backbeat Run 2017

Banbros Philippines together with Plantronics Philippines, Brother Philippines, and the Kythe Foundation.

Plantronics Philippines, along with numerous partners, is going to hold their Backbear Run for a Cause 2017 on May 28, 2017 at SM Mall of Asia. The half marathon event will feature 5K, 10K, 16K, and 21K categories with each distance having several prizes for the winners.

Runners that are interested in participating can register via this registration page. In-store registration is also open between April 15 – May 15, 2017 at RUNNR (Trinoma, BGC, and Alabang Town Center) and TOBY’S (Edsa Shangri-La, Glorietta, and SM Mall of Asia).

Once registered, participants will get a free Plantronics ML15 Bluetooth headset with a race kit package courtesy of Plantronics. Aside from that, all registered runners are eligible to win additional prizes such as a Plantronics BackBeat Fit Bluetooth headset and a ThiEYE i30 action camera, which will be announed on the official Backbeat Run 2017 Facebook page and Plantronics Philippines Facebook page. Awarding of the lucky winners will be held on the event day.

Last year, Plantronics started a strong campaign on practice safe driving to support Government RA No. 120913 Anti-Distracted Driving Act that will penalize drivers who use mobile phones while driving. Together with one of their partners, Brother Philippines, the two world leaders in technology will come together to fund the first ever Backbeat Run for a Cause 2017 to achieve a single goal: run for a good cause.

Mr. Charm Mercado, Cancer survivor and volunteer for the Kythe Foundation

Proceeds gained from the race will benefit the Kythe Foundation, which is a non-profit, non-stock organization that is passionate about improving the quality of life of diagnosed and hospitalized children with cancer.

After the run, participants will be treated with live music entertainment by guest performers such as: Autotelic, Jensen & the Flips, DJ Patrick Po, DJ Katsy Lee, Hatta Boyz, and the LGAC Dance Crew.
