MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) will hold the 10th edition of its Bull Run on February 16.

This year, the Bull Run, which will be held at Bonifacio Global City, is being tagged as "Build Run" since part of the registration fee will be donated to a rehabilitation fund for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. The PSE will match the total amount raised from the sign ups and donate it to the fund as well.

"We want this 10th Bull Run, being a milestone for us, to also be responsive to the pressing needs of our countrymen. We have always used the event to promote investor awareness about the values of stock investing and its role in economic growth but this year, we want to solely focus on helping the rebuilding efforts in the affected communities of Typhoon Yolanda," said PSE President and CEO Hans B. Sicat.

The 10th PSE Bull Run will have five divisions including 21K, 16K, 10K, 5K and 3K. All registered runners will be given a race packet that has a singlet, timing chip, race bib and the contribution voucher.

Participants in the 21K and 16K races will also get a finisher’s shirt and medal on race day.

The stockbroker and listed company that will have the most number of registered runners will be given the Biggest Delegation Award.

Interested participants may register through the Market Education Department of the Exchange at the PSE Plaza in Makati City or through SM Cinema ticket booths nationwide. Online registration is also available through www.smtickets.com.
