Incoming: PRO Earth Run

Posted by on 9. April 2014

“Earth Day is celebrated every April 22 of the year and the festivities begin with PRO Earth Run.  Let’s Protect, Respect and Oversee the care of Mother Nature and increase that awareness by running for this cause.”

PRO Earth Run

Every year we celebrate Earth Day to raise awareness on the importance of the environment.  We are awed by its beauty.  We have cleaner air with a greener society.  We get our sustenance through the environment. Yet, we are all witnesses on the how it has deteriorated through the years.  It’s time that we put premium on Mother Earth. Let us Protect, Respect and Oversee the care of the Earth as it is our one and only home.  There will be a series of activities lined up for this year’s celebration and among them is PRO Earth Rum with a distance for everybody. There’s 1.5K for kids, 3 and 5K for newbie runners and 10K for the experienced one.  Let’s join this cause and enjoy the distance for the love of our home.

The celebration is headed by Earth Day Network Philippines (EDNP).  EDNP is a network organization of different sectors of society campaigning for environmental citizenship. It also invites everyone to celebrate Earth Day every April 22.  EDNP is the local counterpart of the Earth Day Network International based in Washington, USA. It is the network organization that coordinates the celebration of Earth Day and is composed of government agencies, local government units, businesses, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, religious groups and individuals for environmental citizenship through meaningful cooperation.

 Time to do our share for our environment and join this run.

More than 5000 pro-Earth run for environment protection

10K Pro Earth Runners warming up before gun start.

More than 5,000 running enthusiasts heeded the call of Earth Day Network Philippines to protect, respect, and oversee the sensible and sustainable care of Mother Earth as they sprinted around Bonifacio Global City for the “Pro‐Earth Run” Saturday morning.

Earth Day Network Philippines President Bert Guevarra said the fun run is a kick‐off activity for the 2014 Earth Day Celebration on April 22, 2014.

“We want to promote earth day everyday, everywhere for everyone. We must have a conscious effort to take good care of our environment everyday,” Guevarra said.

The Earth Day Network Philippines, a non‐profit, non‐stock corporation, leads more than two thousand (2,000) entities from different sectors of the Philippines that work towards environmental protection and conservation.

The pro‐earth runners inched and raced one another to the finish line of the 10‐km, 5‐ km, and 3‐km categories. There was also a 1.5‐km run for children dubbed “Run with Doraemon.”

The Earth Day Network ambassador Doraemon, with his friends Nobita and Shizuka, also graced the event and entertained the runners before sending them off the starting track.

The pro‐earth run was presented by LifeOil, 100% pure Malunggay extract, and United Parcel Services or UPS.

Carlo Lugtu, executive vice president of Manila Nature’s Link Corporation, the maker of LifeOil, shared that “LifeOil energizes people with active lifestyle, including runners, by replenishing the energy they lose during physically demanding activities. ”

“Malunggay oil extract, aside from increasing energy, also strengthens the immune system, manages sugar level, and has Vitamin D,” Lugtu added.

Among those who joined the fun run were celebrities from GMA Artist Center. They said they participated in the event not only because they want to stay fit but also because the run was for a good cause.

Starstruck alumnus Steve Silva tweeted “WE DID IT! #5k #ProEarthRun kickoff event for the worldwide celebration of Earth Day on April 22”

Staged by Huper International, the Pro‐Earth Run was also sponsored by the Philippine Charity Sweeptakes Office, First Gen, Energy Development Corporation, Globe, Holcim, Animation International – Philippines, Informatics, Merrell, Lumsense, The Body Shop Peppermint Leg Spray, St. Luke’s Medical Center, Timex, Gardenia, Greenlite Banner, Gold’s Gym, Integrated Waste Management, Inc., Empire East, Union Bank, and Haribon Foundation.
