Fil-Am Tri Club - East Coast held a successful benefit event on November 11, 2012 in Central Park to raise funds and collect much needed supplies for those most affected by Super Storm Sandy. Several members got together through Facebook and with some quick planning and organizing Handog Tulong (To Offer Help), was created. In less than a week, over 40 runners and supporters arrived at The Bandshell on a beautiful Sunday morning. Many said that the day couldn’t be better to hold such a meaningful event with temperatures in the low 50’s and the sun shining. Coffee and hot chocolate helped to break the morning chill, and bagels and pan de sal helped fuel the runners for the planned 4-mile run.
