12/03/2013: PHILIPPINE CONSULATE PERSONNEL PROMOTE PHILIPPINE TOURISM AT THE COLOR RUN

Personnel of the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco joined The Color Run last Saturday, March 2, in support of the Philippine Department of Tourism’s campaign to promote sports and environmental tourism in the Philippines.

The "More Fun in the Philippines" Team - before and after the Color Run.

The Consulate Team, headed by Tourism Director Rene de los Santos, wore shirts that carried the motto of the Philippines’ current tourism campaign, “It’s More Fun in the Philippines”, which were well-received by other participants of the run.

The Color Run outing was also done in preparation for the Philippine Department of Tourism’s next sports outing, the “It’s More Fun” Run in San Mateo, which is organized in partnership with Activentures, a local event management company.

The “It’s More Fun” Run, which will take place on April 14, takes participants on a 5k or 10k course around Coyote Point Park in San Mateo. The run, which is being organized to promote a healthy lifestyle among family members, offers discounted fees for Parent/Child team registration.
