The Down and Dirty Dash (or Triple D as we love to call it) is a three-kilometer fun run through a muddy obstacle course, shying away from the usual fun run by adding its own distinct female flavor: dirty women. And no, we don’t mean the vulgar type.
Inspired by Go Dirty Girl, a mud run pioneered in the United States, Triple D aims to promote Confidence, Camaraderie, and Empowerment. It is an event for women, made by women - a day where women can simply have fun, hang out with their girl friends and let their hair down. Forget the meek and weak stereotype. Triple D is a testament to the strong, independent Filipina. She is the modern Maria Clara who’s out to prove that just like any guy, she knows how to get down and dirty - and she’s not afraid to show it.
More importantly, Triple D shows that beneath the modern Filipina’s strength and confidence awaits a compassionate heart. Part of the proceeds for Triple D will go to Project Pink - a support group that aims to promote breast cancer awareness among Filipina women. According to research, Filipinas are most prone to the disease, compared to other Asian women. Triple D gives every Filipina not only a day of pure, dirty fun but also the chance to stand up in the fight against breast cancer. Now, isn’t that a cause worth getting down and dirty for?
The Down and Dirty Dash is produced by Event Horizon Productions.
