Takbo Para Sa Japan (Run for Japan)

Missing running in UP Diliman?  Want to join a fund-raiser?  Craving for a Saturday race?  If you said yes to all three then there’s a perfect event for you: Takbo para sa Japan.

Takbo para sa Japan (TPSJ) is a fund-raising project of the UP Center for International Studies in partnership with the University of Philippines Anime Manga Enthusiasts (UP AME), the University of the Philippines Red Cross Youth (UP RCY), and the University of the Philippines Philippine-Japan Friendship Club (UP Tomo-Kai). It is part of the UPCIS’ GAMBARE, NIHON! J Campaign project, a series of events to help the victims of the March 11, 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident in Japan.

TPSJ is our contribution to the UP System’s “Earthquake-Tsunami Sympathy Activities” in response to UP President Alfredo Pascual’s call to “mobilize its constituents, especially those who have benefited from studies in universities and other institutions of higher learning in Japan, to pool resources to contribute to efforts to help those who deserve assistance.”

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Japan Red Cross through the “Japan Omimai Bokin” set-up by the UP System with the UP Foundation.

The event is set on July 23, which is also Philippine-Japan Friendship Day.
