Western Union has launched, "Heroes for Better", an advocacy campaign that recognizes Filipinos around the world who have made an enormous positive impact in the lives of others in their own little way.

To date, he has ran 129 marathons barefoot that helped raised funds for over 15,000 school children by partnering with social enterprise, Soles4Souls.
To know more about his story, please watch the video below (this gave me goosebumps!). If this post has inspired you, please feel free to share his story. :)
