10.10.10 Run for Pasig River

ABS-CBN Foundation in its sustaining effort for Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig launched the MALINAW Advocacy on April 15, 2010.

As a clear call-to-action to inspire Filipinos from all walks of life, the MALINAW advocacy aims to bring back the glory of Pasig River and mobilizes the whole populace into action.  It’s a yearning we’ve all clamored for—a Pasig River that is clean and sustainable for present and future generations.

As a milestone to this advocacy, the 10.10.10. RUN FOR PASIG RIVER aims to raise awareness and funds for the river.  Among ABS-CBN Foundation’s initiatives to restore the Pasig River, the 10.10.10 Run for the Pasig River is more than a run, it’s a social movement.

The 10.10.10 Run for Pasig River is targeting 101,010 runners from different sectors—the largest run ever conceptualized and to be actualized in the world—including government offices, schools, business corporations, and many more that will give their support and join the rally for the Pasig.

Surely, the Filipinos, yet again, may turn the heads of the Guinness Book of World Records.

It will consist of four major starting points—SM Mall of Asia (3K), CCP Complex (5K), and Makati (10K), all converging to one finish line at the SM Mall of Asia where a grand celebration will also be held after to cap-off this epic movement!

Everyone is invited to save the Pasig River and prove, once again, that the Filipino can stand, or in this case run together for one good cause.

On 10.10.10, save the date!  Save the river.

Limits Tested, Trails Endured—TNF100 Completed!

Congratulations to all TNF100 Philippines 2010 finishers particularly those in 50 and 100K!  This goes out as well to those who finished outside the cutoff—be proud of what you’ve accomplished!  And to those who weren’t as successful, the important thing is to never stop striving!

I’m especially proud of our TNF50 ladies whom not only successfully completed their campaign, some even placed within the top 10.  Placers or not, we are all winners in our own race.

Never stop exploring–The North Face

Thank you to my friends who sent their love and support from both near and afar, and thank you beautiful Baguio for your warm hospitality!  Watch out for my TNF100 story coming up soon!

The world has certainly seen better days and for those old enough they’ve seen the world degrade over the last four decades.  I sure hope that the next four decades that we see would be a better one than the last.  Think of the Earth.  Think of home.  It’s the only one we got.  Happy Earth Day!
