Run for Light

After the success of the Bottle School Run, My Shelter Foundation continues to pursue its mission to create a system of sustainability and replicability through its capability-building and employment generating projects.  In line with this, My Shelter Foundation is organizing a benefit run dubbed, “Bataan Run for Light: A hundred today, thousands tomorrow.”  This would be a pioneering project of My Shelter Foundation headed by Mr. Illac Diaz.  The run will be included as one of the highlights in the celebration of Bataan Day.  Here are the event particulars:

The goal of this project is to have free available light in dark communities using innovative technology while promoting eco-friendly methods through recycling.  By making the City of Balanga as the venue for the first fun run and beneficiary, the idea and the capability to put it in the front pages of change would create a bigger impact than what was done in South America with the MIT team.  We would like to present to the whole province of Bataan that what we can do for Balanga City can also be done not only to the rest of the province but to the whole country as well.
