“RUN FOR THE PASIG RIVER 2013” SET ON OCTOBER 6

ABS-CBN has beefed up its annual fun run for the rehabilitation of Pasig River by launching a simultaneous advocacy run across five cities in the Philippines and the US dubbed as the “One Run, One Philippines: Isang Bayan para sa Kalikasan” on October 6 as part of its 60th anniversary celebration.

The “One Run, One Philippines,” which will take place in Quezon City, Cebu City, Bacolod City, Davao City, and Los Angeles (USA), will have different beneficiaries.

The “Run for the Pasig River” will be held at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City and will again raise funds for the rehabilitation of the waterways in Metro Manila that contribute to the degradation of the Pasig River.

The Cebu leg will benefit coastal conservation in Daan Paz; the Davao leg will support the ecotourism projects in Marilog Tourist Center; the Bacolod leg will help the mangrove and livelihood projects in Punta Taytay, Sum-ag River rehabilitation, and ecotourism projects in Bacolod City Water District Campuestuhan Watershed; while the Los Angeles leg will fund the Green Initiative of Bantay Kalikasan.

To date, ABS-CBN Foundation’s Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP) has organized four successful runs for the Pasig River and had raised P25.94 million.

In 2009, the fun run funded the initial phase of Estero de Paco’s clean-up, while the historic “10.10.10 Run for the Pasig River” funded the second phase and even broke the Guinness World Record for the “most number of participants in a running event” in 2010 with 116,086 runners.

The 2011 and 2012 runs for the Pasig River are currently aiding the rehabilitation of Estero de San Miguel and four other esteros behind the Malacañang Palace in partnership with the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission.

As the “Run for the Pasig River” kicks off on its fifth year, KBPIP is again urging groups and individuals to join the advocacy for cleaner rivers and esteros in Metro Manila.

The participants may opt between 3K and 5K categories with both 6:00 AM gunstart at Philcoa then head straight along Commonwealth Avenue and will finish at the Elliptical Road.

Runners can sign up until October 5 at the “Run for the Pasig River” registration booths located at SM Mall of Asia, SM North EDSA, SM Megamall, and Chris Sports outlets located at Glorietta, Festival Mall, SM North EDSA-The Annex, SM Megamall, SM Manila, SM Fairview, and Fitness & Athletics BGC. Registration fee is P300, while the student rate is P150. Limited edition “One Run, One Philippines” merchandise distributed by ABS-CBN Licensing are also available in the booths.

“One Run, One Philippines” aarangkada sa Quezon City, Cebu, Bacolod, Davao and L.A para sa kalikasan

“RUN FOR THE PASIG RIVER 2013,” LALARGA NA NGAYONG OKTUBRE

Mas pinalawak ng ABS-CBN ang taunang fun run para sa sagipin ang Ilog Pasig sa paglunsad ng advocacy run na ““One Run, One Philippines: Isang Bayan para sa Kalikasan” na sabayang gaganapin sa limang lungsod sa Pilipinas at US ngayong Oktubre 6 kasabay ng ika-60 anibersaryo nito.

Isasagawa ang “One Run, One Philippines” sa Quezon City, Cebu City, Bacolod City, Davao City at Los Angeles (USA) upang makalikom ng pondo para sa iba’t-ibang proyektong pangkalikasan.

Paiigtingin ng ABS-CBN Foundation–Kapit Bisig para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP) ang kampanyang buhayin ang Ilog Pasig sa pamamagitan ng taunang “Run for the Pasig River” na gaganapin sa Quezon Memorial Circle.

Ang fun run naman sa Cebu City ay para sa pagpapanatili ng yaman at kagandahan ng baybayin ng Daan Paz; ang sa Davao City ay para sa turismo ng Marilog Tourist Center; ang sa Bacolod City ay para sa mga mangrove at proyektong pangkabuhayan ng Punta Taytay, Sum-ag River rehabilitation, at ecotourism projects sa Bacolod City Water District Campuestuhan Watershed; at ang sa Los Angeles ay para sa Green Initiative ng Bantay Kalikasan.

Dahil sa tagumpay ng apat na nagdaang “Run for the Pasig River,” nakalikom na ng P25.94 milyon ang KBPIP na siyang ginagamit para isakatuparan ang pagkakaroon ng mas malinis na ilog at estero sa Metro Manila.

Nang dahil sa fun run noong 2009 ay nasimulan ang panimulang rehabilistasyon ng Estero de Paco, habang ang makasaysayang “10.10.10 Run for the Pasig River” naman ang nagpondo sa ikalawang bahagi ng proyekto at nagtamo rin ng Guinness World Record para sa “most number of participants in a running event” noong 2010 matapos itong makapagtala ng 116,087 na kalahok.

Kasalukuyan namang pinopondohan ng mga marathong ito ang paglilinis ng Estero de San Miguel at apat pang estero sa likod ng Malacañang Palace kaakibat ang Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission.

Sa ikalimang pagsipa ng “Run for the Pasig River” ngayong taon, muling inaanyayahan ng KBPIP, ang publiko na lumahok sa takbuhan.
