NEW YORK CITY, US—Amidst the cloudy skies and the chilly autumn weather, four of the Philippine call center Open Access BPO’s representatives crossed the finish line alongside the 50,766 finishers of the prestigious TCS New York City Marathon 2017 last November 6.
Leo Penas, Ma. Leonisa Cantos, Lizelle Barbosa, and Ezekiel Narcelles trekked 42 kilometers of asphalt and pavement as part of the collaboration between Open Access BPO and cause-driven nonprofit Ryan’s Run, an official Silver Charity Partner of the 2017 NYC Marathon.
Back in early September, Open Access BPO renewed their partnership with Ryan’s Run through a $30,000 donation to the charity, which allowed the four runners to tap into their passion for running and participate in an important cause.
Bracing through the cold of New York City’s five boroughs, Penas, Cantos, Barbosa, and Narcelles had finished the marathon at 3:32:07, 5:15:11, 5:22:54, and 6:48:41 respectively.
Ryan’s Run seeks to spread awareness and help nonprofit healthcare system Allied Services to improve the lives of people with disabilities, life-changing injuries, and chronic illnesses.
