Rubber Shoes (Dream Run)

Aug 15, 2015

Efren is an energetic and diligent student in a rural town in Zambales. After one long day at school during his second year in elementary, Efren goes home limping. His parents, especially his farmer father, do not understand how their once active child is suddenly losing control of his legs. Over months, it becomes harder and harder for Efren to walk. Meanwhile, Efren’s father is there to support him, carrying him on his back almost every day so he can finish his studies and achieve whatever dream he has. Later on, Efren, with the aid of World Vision, is diagnosed with Tuberculosis of the bone and receives free medications from the organization. Saddened and discouraged because of his condition, Efren tries to face the consequence that he may not be able to walk normally again despite the meds he has been taking. But his father continues to encourage him and believes in his dream of finishing his schooling, advising him not to exhaust his right leg. Four years after his fluctuating recovery, Efren becomes active in his school’s track-and-field program, much to the surprise of many. Keeping it a secret from his father, Efren joins in running competitions in his school, and later in his barangay and municipality, giving his best in each race despite his condition. But his father, severely worried about his health, does not allow him to join in his first major track-and-field competition. Efren does not let his fears eat away his dreams, and manages to convince his reluctant father to sign the waiver and let him compete. Later on, he conquers the odds as he comes out as the fastest in the race he has dreamed to participate in. His father does not expect that this is the start of his many amazing successes in running. In 2014, he is trained to compete in Palarong Pambansa representing Zambales with much pride and confidence.
