Last weekend the 11th Filipino Association for Mariners’ Employment (FAME) Fun Run was held at Pasay City in the Philippines. Thirty employees from our Manila office joined the longest-running racing event in the maritime industry to support a good cause, and to kick-off the commemoration of the International Seafarer’s Day.

This annual event is part of the continuous work done by FAME to raise awareness around seafaring as a career. You can read more about FAME and their work here.

With more than 4400 runners from more than 100 maritime companies, runners were in good company on all distances.
