A portion of the proceeds of TBR Dream Marathon is donated to HERO Foundation. We also encourage runners of TBR Dream Marathon to run for HERO.

What is HERO Foundation?

Hero Foundation, Inc. is a non-stock, not-for-profit organization that was organized by the late President Corazon C. Aquino in 1988 with then Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Gen. Renato de Villa who called on the business community to respond to the growing needs of the families our “heroes” have left behind.

HERO stands for Help, Educate, and Rear Orphans. Since then, the foundation has been providing educational stipends to military orphans. The financial support helps keep orphans in school as it covers much needed requirements such as school supplies, transportation, meals and even a portion of their tuition fee.

For 24 years now, the foundation has not wavered in its commitment to provide educational support to the children of our soldiers and ensure that they have a better chance at a brighter future.

How can you use running TBR Dream Marathon to help?

HERO has affordable donation packages for individuals who are willing to sponsor a child through affordable donations.

P3,000 a year = To support a little boy or girl for 1 semester in grade school.
P5,400 a year = To support a little boy or girl for 1 year in grade school.
P7,800 a year = To support an orphan for 1 year in high school or 1 semester in college.

Collect pledges from your friends when you run TBR Dream Marathon and donate this directly to HERO Foundation.


Tell friends you are running your first marathon at TBR Dream Marathon. For every kilometer you run, ask them to pledge P75. P75 x 42km = P3,150, a little more than what one child needs to finish a semester of grade school!
