On the eve of the 65th Annual Miss Universe Coronation, let me express our deepest thanks and appreciation to the Miss Universe Organization for choosing PAFPI as a channel for its philanthropic efforts, through its partner, Pass It Forward.We especially take utmost pride and joy in our indefatigable and exquisite queen, Miss Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, who, as early as in her winning response during the 2015 Q&A portion, had deemed HIV/AIDS-advocacy a worthy cause. Indeed, the most beautiful woman in the universe not only is blessed with an elegant surface but also, and more importantly, with wisdom and a pure heart.

Moreover, it comes as a much-welcome coincidence that one of our strongest allies and benefactors for the past seven years, M.A.C. Cosmetics Phils., has teamed up with MUO for this year’s pageant. I must confess I had to constantly ask myself why those in the business of beauty gravitate towards HIV-charity.

On behalf of the trustees and the entire PAFPI family, I salute you, partners, and wish you continuing success in all endeavors. Rest assured that your support will go a long and beautiful way in advancing a Philippine society that truly cares for and empowers people living with HIV/AIDS.

Sincerely,
(Sgd.) Carlo Martin R. Alcala

A fun run is one of the popular fitness events that draw large attention from fitness buffs or hobbyists alike. And although it is still a race, where winners are called, and winning loot bags, raffle prizes, and cash prizes are craved after, most runners join fun runs because of the socialization part. Needless to say, running along with your peers, meeting new runners and socializing after the run goes beyond the competition.
