On Sep 18, 2011, a hero from Hong Kong, celebrated her birthday by sending children to a fun filled and memorable afternoon with delicious food, sweets, games and loads of prizes! The best thing about it is, this hero has done this before!

JEAN TSE, a Hong Kong based hero, celebrated her birthday the Pusong Pinoy way for the 2nd consecutive time. Similar to last year, her birthday party was attended by an estimated 150 kids with their families. This activity was held at Lipa City, Batangas with 16 volunteers from Parish Social Action Committee (PSAC) to ensure everyone had a superb time.

Macaroni, bread, sweets, and juice were on the menu while prizes were awarded to those who participated in the games and activities that day.

Jean, all we can say is "Thank You" for bringing smiles to the children's faces once again. May you be blessed twice fold for the selfless acts that you do each day. We, at Pusong Pinoy, will forever be thankful to Heroes like you and we will always be ready to organize birthday parties, such as this, for the benefit of less fortunate children back home. Looking forward to your birthday next year!

Come rain or shine – Pusong Pinoy held the first Heroes Run on August 28, 2011 in Baguio City, despite the raging super-typhoon Mina.  It was a great team effort, bringing together Pusong Pinoy heroes, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters from around the world – united in a common goal – to spread the word about our cause.

Thanks to everyone who made it to the run! The storm truly brought out the HEROES in you. Thanks also to those who wanted to be a part of the run but was prevented from doing so due to the closing of all roads leading to Baguio City on that day.  Runners, volunteers and Team Leaders from Baguio-Benguet, Manila and Hongkong braved freezing winds and rain to ensure that the HEROES who ran had a memorable experience.  Proudly wearing their souvenir T-shirts, runners of all ages took on the typhoon with big smiles, cheers and laughter.  PP is truly grateful to all the runners that signed up, all 706 of you and to all our amazing sponsors and supporters for always being there to support our projects.

Special thanks to Ms. Che Alberto and the Cool City Runners, UPPL Pusoy, Dawn to Dusk Mountaineers, BEGNAS Cultural Dancers, UP Shadows, the Noobs photographers of Pampanga, Ralph Quijano, and all our PP Superheroes for coming and helping ensure the success of our fun run despite the harsh weather condition.   Because of our collective efforts, PP will be able to reach out to more public schools and more kids in the near future. Together, we are making a difference. Thank you HEROES!!!

Although 706 Runners have registered, due to the typhoon, less than 300 Runners showed up but we are happy to announce that the rest of the food that was ordered for those who were not able to make it, did not go to waste. Our PP Team went to Baguio General Hospital and distributed the extra food to its patients.
