NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL’S EARTH DAY RUN 2015 EXPECTS LARGEST PARTICIPATION OF 20,000 RUNNERS

Press Release: Earth Day Run 2015, powered by National Geographic Channel (NGC), will be introducing new and exciting changes to mark its sixth year as one of the biggest running events in the Philippines. With RunRio at the helm, Earth Day Run 2015 is expecting 20,000 runners to participate on April 26, 2015 at the Mall of Asia Open Grounds, with the addition of 5,000 runners for its Baguio leg. Support from the registration of all participants will help raise money for portable solar powered lighting kits that will be sent to communities in Mindoro, a project of NGC’s environmental partner, World Wildlife Fund for Nature.

These portable solar powered lighting kits will provide light and electricity to the Tawbuid Mangyan tribesfolk and Forest Rangers’ camps that are not directly connected to power grids. The lighting kits eliminate the use of highly-flammable kerosene to light up their homes and gives them access to a safe, stable and sustainable energy source that gives more opportunities for community development and advancement.

NGC’s Earth Day Run has consistently helped in promoting sustainable living and supporting environmental advocacy utilizing the popular platform of running in its six years of operation. As a result, participation in Earth Day Run has increased year on year, allowing NGC to contribute significantly to various environmental causes.

Earth Day Run 2015 expects to register 20,000 runners this year, and slots for 5K, 10K, 21K and 42K (Manila leg only) will be open beginning February 23,2015, via online registration at http://www.runrio.com. On-site registration starts March 16 to April 19 at the Lower Ground Floor, SM Aura Premier BGC.

NGC, together with its partners, aims to raise awareness on the benefits of sustainable energy while ensuring that the events at Earth Day Run 2015 will involve fun celebrations that include races, awards and shows of skill. Besides providing recreation and fitness benefits through Earth Day Run 2015, NGC will also be partnering with its participants to make substantial contributions to the sustainable development of the Tawbuid Mangyan tribesfolk and to provide support to the Mindoro Forest Rangers advocating the preservation of our Tamaraws.

Press Release: Pro Earth Run 2015 is an advocacy run to encourage people to Protect, Respect, and Oversee the sensible and sustainable care of Mother Earth. Proceeds of this event will go to the continuing environmental projects of the Earth Day Network Philippines, Incorporated.

Earth Day Network Philippines, Incorporated is the local counterpart of the global Earth Day Network International. It is a network organization that campaigns for environmental citizenship and spearheads the annual April 22nd Earth Day Celebration in the Philippines. It is in partnership with government agencies, non-government organizations, private corporations, academic institutions, religious groups, and environmental advocates.

Aside from keeping your body fit by running, you will also be donating to Earth Day Network Philippines, in support to its continuing environmental projects and eco-social initiatives such as Zero Basura Olympics, Trees4Life: Tubong Pinoy Reforestation Movement, Mini-Carbon Olympics, Watershed Restoration and Forest Conservation, and Re-Charge Tacloban.
