More than 500 employees, family and friends of Cebu Oversea Hardware Company Inc. (COH) and its sister company – CW Home Depot bolted together for a special fun run last June 9, 2012. The first ever “Run United”, organized by the two building and construction industry leaders, was in celebration of Cebu Oversea Hardware Company Inc.’s 60th Anniversary. The event also commits to donate a certain amount to its chosen charity for every runner who participated in the event. It is a brain child of CW Home Depot’s patriarch Engr. Napoleon Co who regularly supports running activities for special causes.
“In behalf of Cebu Oversea Hardware and CW Home Depot, I would like to thank everyone who participated in RUN UNITED. I was glad that a lot of you came here today to celebrate Cebu Oversea’s 60th Anniversary and to raise funds for our charity projects. I would also like to acknowledge the partners who aide us in making this event possible: Pasig City Traffic and Parking Management Office, Eastern Police District and MMDA for the facilitation of the event, the Administration of AutoCamp, Barangay Ugong Rescue Team for the ambulance and first aid personnel on stand-by, our tenants here in CW Home Depot Ortigas Complex: Second Wind Running store for the hydration station and Safe-T Riders for the traffic cones. We look forward to more fun runs in the future, please remember: A home that runs together grows stronger and healthier,” says Mr. Co.
