” Blood Rush | Aftershock: The UP Red Cross Youth Fun Run is a run for a cause with the Dugong Bayani Blood Network as main beneficiary. Aside from the cause, Aftershock also brings you to a post earthquake scenario with an intensity 9.8 earthquake and you’ll have to get past several incidents and disaster areas going to the safe zone. The event is happening at UP Academic Oval on October 26, 2014, 6 PM with 3K and 5K categories. ”
If there was one life defining experience I had, it was experiencing an intensity 7.7 magnitude earthquake way back in 1990. I can still vividly remember how we were thrown off from the table as we saw all our appliances falling down one after another because of the strong earthquake. We managed to rush ourselves out of the house and into the road as the quake settled done. While the main quake can be lethal, it’s the aftershock that was critical which had us camping outside our house for months to ensure our safety. It was a humbling experience as everybody was on even footing and everybody was in need of help. Then there’s the long hard road to recovery and rebuilding.
That scene is recreated in Blood Rush – Aftershock which starts with an intensity 9.8 Earthquake hitting the campus and you have to reach the safe zone – but proceed with caution, as the course is filled with horrible incidents and as with all disasters, time is not on your side. Grab your friends and prepare for one exhilarating night on October 26, 2014 at the UP Diliman Academic Oval. You can choose between two paths – the easy way (3k) or the hard way (5k).
The 3k is at 450 php and the 5k is at 550 php. The race kit includes singlet, race bib, a flashlight to help you survive, waivers, the route map, and other exciting freebies. You can get a 50php discount if you have a UP ID, or if you register in groups of 5 and 8. You can register at the UP Red Cross Youth tambayan at Vinzons Hall, UP Diliman, or online at http://tinyurl.com/AftershockReg or http://tinyurl.com/AftershockRegGroup
Survivors will get a chance to win exciting prizes from our sponsors such as Birkenstock, Hawk Bags, and Eastwood Cinemas as well as cash prizes.
There will also be a photo booth, food concessionaires and merchandise booth and a short program after the run to tell you more about our cause! All proceeds will go to the Dugong Bayani Blood Network – a system of blood donors that advocates Blood Donation Awareness and Blood Advocacy
