EventsFeature SHOE DRIVE 2011!


At the upcoming Animo Sprint Triathlon 2011, get ready to RACE, GIVE back, and INSPIRE! will have its very own booth at the triathlon and fitness fair expo of the Animo Sprint Tri. Thank you to the organizers for giving us one!

Charity work is something that’s very close to the heart of the SBR organization.. and to make sure we don’t waste the booth space, it’s the perfect time to launch’s first ever charity work of the year, the SBR Shoe Drive 2011!

If you have old shoes that you’re not using anymore, you might wanna donate it to charity so other people can use it. We will also be accepting old race singlets

For this event, has chosen Tuloy Foundation to be its official beneficiary.

Why Tuloy Foundation?

First of all, why not? One look at their website and you will know that it’s a charity that already has a lot of history. They’ve been helping the less fortunate since 1993. Also, the thing that has led me to choose Tuloy Foundation is the fact that they have a really strong sports development program. Here’s what Tuloy Foundation’s Ayra Esmaquel has to say about it.

“Tuloy’s existing football program complements its values formation.  It has been an effective tool in improving the kids’ physical well-being, self-esteem, and behavioral and academic performances.  Noting how effective it has become in the transformation of our resident clientele, Tuloy has started to go beyond its walls in enlisting participation to the program.  In 2010, the football program was enhanced to benefit the children in neighboring slums who are not presently availing of Tuloy’s alternative education, as well as the children served by other charity organizations and public schools in MuntiParLas.Although football is the main sport here in Tuloy, we also have quite an accomplished touch rugby team.  They also train regularly and like the football club, compete and do well in several tournaments throughout the year.

As you can see, sports plays a very important role in the rehabilitation of the children here in Tuloy.

Any sports items in good condition that you would be able to donate to us from the shoe drive would be very much appreciated.”

Race. Give. Inspire.

Race. Because as we race, one way or another we will have a shoe that will wear out and we will stop using at some point. Also, everytime you join a race, you will be given a race singlet as a souvenir. Join 10+ races in a year, and you will have some singlets that for sure will just clog up your closet space.

Give. Because we want to encourage everyone to give and donate their old used shoes and race singlets. Instead of letting them just gather dust.

Inspire. Because not only do you give the less fortunate the tools to run and get active in sports, you will also inspire them to live a more positive life by engaging in a healthier lifestyle.

We all know that the true meaning of giving is not expecting something in return, but as’s way of saying THANK YOU to everyone who will participate in this endeavor, all the donors will receive a special coupon that will make them eligible for these special deals courtesy of our friends in the multisport community.

A triathlete making a comeback and a true blue Scorpio. That sums it up quite nicely :)


  1. You got a big heart for doing this. Triathlon can be a very selfish and self centered sport. Thank you for making a difference I will definitely be there and donate!

  2. Only 10 shares?? Charity works like this should have 100+ shares already! Sharing this in my profile. To the administrator THANK YOU for doing this. I just saw this website and it is one heck of a site!

  3. Thank you guys for the kind words. :) It’s all about giving back :)

    Hi Luis! Non-running shoes are ok but given the nature of the shoe drive, we prefer that you give sports shoes.. running/cross training types :)

  4. Thank you for the information and more so for the inspiration. We will support your worthy drive for a cause. See you Sunday and may the Lord bless you, sir!
