The Stiletto Race or "Tour de Takong" is not all fun, glamour, and fabulousness. There are also some sad, but inspiring stories. Like that of Beverly Paralle, who said she joined the race so that she could raise money to have her denture problem fixed.

Mayor Marcy Teodoro immediately promised to help Beverly and asked her and her mother to drop by his office on Monday so that their concerns will be addressed.

Beverly, a student at the Marikina High School, said she joined the race so that she could use the money from her winning to help augment the budget of her mother, a single mom, and the rest to have her teeth fixed. Her mother, who does not a regular job, also joined the contest years ago but did not win.

Beverly who finished third in the female category, received a cash prize of P8,000. Her mother was grateful to Mayor Marcy for extending his help.
