According to Dingdong, those who will be participating in the event will help public schools who are in dire need of books.

"We plan to receive donation books from the runners and on top of the P400 registration, they will also donate books for the foundation," he said.

The actor added that all the proceeds will go to YPF's programs.

"All the proceeds that we will get, the books, and all the money that we will generate in this fun run will go to Yes Pinoy Foundation for Oplan Restore Paaralan," Dingdong said.

He added that education is very important and it is a personal advocacy of his.

"I believe that education is one of the most powerful tool...So, it's one thing that I would like to protect."

All the funds and books that will be collected will proceed to public schools in Cainta, Rizal, Laguna, Marikina and Muntinlupa. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
