Rundezvous Inc., together with the Local Government of Pasay City, invite all of us to join their battle against the use of “plastic” in their municipality by participating on the ” WALANG PLASTIKAN RACE”, the kick off of the city ordinance which will be implemented by October 2012. Please read race details below. 😀

PRESS RELEASE: “When the rainy season is upon us, we relive the tragedy of past typhoons in our lives, we shake our heads as if to say, “How come we can’t get this one right?”  One major root cause of continuing floods in the metropolis is our perennial garbage problem…and at the heart of the garbage is MISUSE, ABUSE AND OVERUSE of plastics.

The Pasay City Government – Office of the Vice-Mayor will implement City Ordinance 4647 on the “Non-usage of Plastics” by October 2012.  This is a bold but admirable move from Vice-Mayor Marlon Pesebre who aims to make Pasay City a model community of the advocacy.  To get the fire started, the Office of the Vice Mayor teamed up with RUNDEZVOUS INC. for a race-extraordinaire dubbed as: WALANG PLASTIKAN: RACE AGAINST PLASTICS!

The race is geared towards creating awareness and outright implementation of this advocacy so that participant-runners have that firsthand experience of making a difference. The race will be central to other fun activities planned for the day to educate people on options against the use of plastics.

WALANG PLASTIKAN: RACE AGAINST PLASTICS will be held on September 9, 2012, SUNDAY at the SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.

In-store Registration starts August 20, 2012 at Secondwind Running stores (Ortigas Home Depot, QC and Greenhills).  Race kit includes bib, timing chip and singlet.

For hassle-free registration, simply deposit registration fee plus add P50 delivery fee — at any BPI branch, with these details:

A portion of the proceeds from this fun run will also benefit projects of the LIFE FOR YOU FOUNDATION, Pasay City.

May this race awaken our sense of community as we fight, not just against the overuse of plastics, but also against so-called “PLASTIK” people! “

See you & Happy Running! 😀
