Eat N Run

Eat N Run: A running club for RWM

During a staff Christmas party in 2014, RWM Chief Operating Officer Stephen Reilly, an avid runner, shared his passion for the sport with an employee over a festive glass of wine. As the two compared notes and exchanged running stories, their casual chat took a productive turn as the discussion shifted towards forming a running club for RWM executives and staff. Within one month, Reilly, Jami Ledesma, Archie Nicasio, Cris Cruz, and Mark Meneses founded Eat N Run, the official, RWM employee-initiated running club.

From just a handful, the number grew each week until the club had as many as 200 runners-with its own Facebook page and personalized shirt to boot. Its founding members and newcomers continue to gather fitness enthusiasts from the various departments that comprise the company's 6,000 strong work force and weekly runs continue to be held today.

When Reilly first mentioned the idea during that Christmas party less than four years ago, his ultimate goal at the time was to create a company-wide event where RWM executives, personnel, and the general public would run together for a good cause in order to promote a culture of wellness and camaraderie among the ranks and community.

The rest, as they say, is history.

History

In 2014, RWM reached a significant milestone when it commemorated five years in the integrated resort industry. The celebrations began on its August 28 anniversary and lasted well over a month. It was during this time that the very first CSR-inspired iteration of LOVE Run With Me was born via an employee-initiated 5K charity fun run held at the McKinley Hill Stadium in Taguig. Limited to RWM executives and staff, the event managed to raise funds in excess of Php 1 million for its chosen beneficiaries, namely the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation and the Pasay Social Welfare Department.

The following year, the same fun run was held at the same venue with the distance being increased to 6K in celebration of RWM's 6th Anniversary. Still limited to RWM employees, LOVE Run With Me was once again able to raise more than Php 1 million for the children of Smokey Mountain, under the care and guidance of the Philippine Christian Foundation (PCF).

By 2016, LOVE Run With Me had gained traction and over 800 runners participated in that year's edition, a 7KM charity fun run in celebration of RWM's 7th year as the country's pioneer integrated resort. This time, RWM invited its partners and special celebrity guests to participate in the race held at the McKinley West Park. A total of Php 1.3 million for the benefit of Caritas Manila, the Lola Grande Foundation for Women and Children, Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation, and White Cross Philippines was raised.

Finally, in 2017, LOVE Run With Me was opened to the public with 21K, 10K, and 5K categories. With approximately 5,000 participants, this edition of LOVE Run With Me was unprecedented in that it had six times more runners than the previous year, with almost 2,000 more participants than the 3,000 target. Through the collective efforts of all runners, sponsors, and celebrity leaders, a total of Php 3 million was raised for the various beneficiaries chosen by participating celebrity leaders.

In addition to the run, RWM also supported Mo Twister's Ride With Mo that extended beyond its four walls all the way to the shores of California, USA. At the same time LOVE Run With Me was taking place, Mo biked from San Francisco to Los Angeles-a distance of 917km that took eight days-which he dedicated to RWM for the benefit of the Arthritis Foundation.

In 2018 Run With Me raised Php 3.5 million for the benefit of HERO Foundation, YESPinoy Foundation, ERDA Tech Foundation, Right Start Community Development Inc., EPCALM Adult Leukemia Foundation of the Philippines, and Empowering Brilliant Minds Foundation. It was also RWM's biggest race to date, with nearly 5,000 registered runners.

In 2017 and 2018, total of 700 excess singlets and finishers shirts were distributed nationwide in partnership with Olympian Hidilyn Diaz.
