I was one of the happy runners at Anne Curtis 'The Happiest 5k on the Planet'

Indeed, this year brings so much colors to my life. To kick off my birth month, I joined The Color Run Dream for the benefit of UNICEF held at the SM Mall of Asia grounds, and finished the happiest 5k on the planet. I have been looking forward to this event. 
The Color Run Dream is the very first color run in the Philippines brought to us by UNICEF Celebrity Advocate for Children Anne Curtis through her Dream Machine foundation. 
I love running to keep myself fit and healthy. But this was no ordinary run at all. It was super fun, colorful and magical! 
It brings such a great feeling, more than the fulfillment of reaching the finish line. Getting the unicorn medal meant a lot to me because I know I ran for a cause. I was one of the happy runners!

The 10,200 happy runners were composed of kids and adults (who are kids-at-heart) who all wanted to make a difference in the life of children with disabilities.

Coach Rio (#RunRio) and the beautiful Anne Curtis were both an inspiration to all of us for making this event possible. 
They were joined by their celebrity friends including Nico Bolzico, and Anne’s fiancĂ© Erwan Heusaff

It was truly wonderful to see them all make time despite their busy schedule for this advocacy.

I’m in awe at Anne’s dedication to her #DreamMachinePH to help dreamers achieve their dreams. She’s super admirable!

We were cheering for each other, and it was one of the most amazing things that happened to me. 
And obviously to this lovely couple who got engaged during the event.

At first I thought it was just the colors floating in the air, but it’s surely beyond that. 

The fun continued in the after party. Every burst of color throws was made more impactful by DJ Tom Taus’ mix. The entire course was dreamy and filled with so much happiness and music.  I wish there’ll be another one next year.

All of us can help dreams come true – for the people we know and those we don’t know but we care for. We can extend our love and share our time to those in need in countless ways. Unicorns and rainbows are real!
