From Running to the Runway: Glorietta Vibe and a Guinness World Record

2,255 models, five runways, one new Guinness world record.  That about sums it up for what transpired last November 29, 2012 with the Glorietta Vibe event which I’m gladly part of.  Here are some of the behind the scenes of this record-breaking feat from my perspective.

10.10.10 Run Makes History

Congratulations to all the participants of the recently concluded 10.10.10 Run for Pasig River!  Apparently you’re all now part of history!  Initial figures from SyCip, Gorres, Velayo & Co. (SGV), the country’s biggest accounting firm, placed the total number of official race starters at 116,812, and that does not include unofficial (“bandit”) runners!  The SGV figure will break Philippine marks and the Guinness World Record of 110,000 runners at the “Bay to Breakers” race in San Francisco, California in 1988.

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.
