In KALIPAY we know that it is vital that the children under our care to have role models – strong, admirable figures to inspire them to overcome fears and adversities, to show them the rewards of hard work and dedication to one’s craft, to teach them that the process in itself is part of the victory, and most importantly that it is a beautiful thing to work for the benefit of something beyond personal gain.
This is what our Tita Julie Uychiat is to KALIPAY. A Negros-born, world-class marathon runner training for the race of her life in October for the World Marathon Challenge – seven races in seven different continents in seven days. With seven being a lucky number, we know that Tita Julie will be armed with so much more than luck, she will be lifted with prayers and well-wishes from her many supporters and of course, the KALIPAY children.
To our dearest Tita Julie, thank you for supporting KALIPAY through your passion for running. You are an inspiration to us all. We wish you success in training, and are all looking forward to the big race in October. We will be behind you every step of the way.
