Incorporated in 1920, the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines has been striving to contribute to the Philippine economic growth for the socioeconomic development of Filipinos.

Every organization here in the Philippines should have this common goal, to help improve the quality of life by continuously helping in providing better opportunities.
Thome Group has always been serious and committed in contributing to the local community.

Since the Thome Group values its Corporate Social Responsibility, its staff have been participating in AmCham Fun Run for 3 years now, believing in its purpose of supporting the education of their beloved scholars. The AmCham Foundation held its 8th

ScholaRUN on 3rd March 2019 at SM By the Bay in SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City. This year was different as the theme revolved on how we Filipinos enjoy eating. There were several stops along the track that participants or runners could enjoy, which offered different types of American food.

Thome Ship Management ROHQ Pte Ltd. was represented by 110 strong employees and 38 of their dependents. Our new ROHQ Vice President enthusiastically supported and personally attended the event as well. Aside from the food provided by AmCham, the Thome Group also gave out incentives such as Starbucks GC and Certificates to the following winners: For the 3k runners: Danilo Tausa and Jeselien Marquez, for the 5K race we had our Vice President, Per Selmer-Olsen, and Jessica Rubina, and for the 10K run, the winners were Rodney Labay and Regee Cenabre.

We are looking forward to participating again and supporting this kind of cause!
