run for hope - the aftermath

The Run for Hope was held last September 12 (Sunday) at the AFP Grounds of the Camp Aguinaldo. Organized by Rai and Sol Mata, ardent supporters of big boy Jon Angelo. Even if less than a hundred attended, the event was still a success. It held to its objective of creating awareness towards big boy's condition and what we can do to ease whatever he's experiencing.

Through this fun run, we were able to solidify our commitments to big boy and his Breathe Hope campaign. I decided to take the 5k run (since most of those who chose the 3K were girls haha). It was really tiring. For a minute there I would have borrowed big boy's oxygen tanks coz I really had a hard time breathing. So what I did was I ran the 2k and walked the 3k. Honestly, I did more walk than run. Need to practice more for the second edition of the Run For Hope come October 9. I finished the race in 48 minutes. If and only if I decide to run again, I will make sure that I'll beat this 48 minutes. Maybe shed off a couple of minutes to my time clock. LOL

Tet delivering her emotional speech:

And the winners:

Happy family despite all the lows. Hold on a little bit more JoniTet. In His time everything will be okay. Big boy will recover. And we will be there to witness it.

Rafael Nadal won the elusive US Open trophy to complete his career Grand Slam by winning all four majors. He is just the 7th man in history and 3rd man in the Open era to complete such feat. He beat Novak Djokovic in 4 sets (6-4 5-7 6-4 6-2). He now has 9 grand slams in his record, 7 shy of Roger Federer's 16 titles.

Rafa is poised to win next year's Australian Open to complete his Rafa Slam by winning 4 consecutive majors (French 2010, Wimbledon 2010, US 2010, Australian 2011).

run for hope

Remember Jon Angelo Viado, the Breathe Hope baby? There’ll be a fundraising project for him this Sunday (Sept. 12) called RUN FOR HOPE. The fun run will be held at the AFP Grounds at Camp Aguinaldo 630am. Registration is P400 inclusive of the Run for Hope shirt and bracelet. All proceeds will be deposited to his account.

If you can’t make it to the fun run, you can still help by donating the P400. You’ll still get the limited edition Run For Hope shirt and bracelet.

Hope you can spend your Sunday with us and help continue Breathing Hope for big boy Jon Angelo.

Good news, he’ll be getting his very own mechanical ventilator soon! Thank you for helping him through the Breathe Hope bracelets. But this doesn’t end with the mechanical vent. He still needs to undergo several operations for him to be seizure-free. And he still needs to undergo several therapy sessions for him to learn how to breathe on his own. So please do include him in your daily prayers. J

For more info, you can visit his sites:

wear white, UP Fight! 2010

Exactly 7 days from now, all roads lead to Araneta Coliseum for this year's UAAP Cheerdance Competition. So can the FEU Cheering Squad successfully defend their title? Or will our UP Pep Squad bring back the crown to Diliman? Can the Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion prove us wrong that last year's 2nd Place finish was pure luck? And can the La Salle Animo Squad keep up with the competition given that their archrival have already placed last year? Or will UE, AdU, NU break all odds and win this year? Oh yeah, and will UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe continue their streak of being out of the winner's circle? How I wish. =)

My fearless forecast for this year's top 3: UP Pep Squad, FEU Cheering Squad. Last spot is a toss-up among Ateneo, La Salle, and UST. By the way, my top 3 is in no particular order. But I'm praying that it will be.

So if you wanna support our beloved UP Pep Squad...

Finally! After more than 3 years naka-gold din! haha. Next step... PLATINUM!

3 and counting

Today, three years ago, I decided to start a blog. Not really adept in site building and HTML's so I asked a former colleague to help me with the layout. All I have were thoughts to share, grievances to voice out, and memories to ponder. And those proved to be vital in surviving those three years. Last year I decided to have my very own domain name (kaloyster.net) to give my blog a more personal touch. Then I started incorporating different items such as pictures, videos, etc. to simulate a mini-website. But it all goes back to the things I blog about. The very backbone of this site.

And today, I'm celebrating my 3rd year in the blogosphere. Cheers to more thoughts, memories, and even grievances to share! Blog on!
