NatGeo Stages Simultaneous Earth Day Run in Five Cities Across Asia


 EDR Blog FinalFive cities. One common goal.

National Geographic Channel brings you a one-of-a-kind running event that spans across five cities in Asia namely Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taichung and Manila all in one day. The event dubbed as the Earth Day Run is now on its seventh year and pledges to support various environmental advocacies spearheaded by the World Wide Fund for Nature. In Manila, the event will be staged at the McKinley West on April 17, 2016.

Runners’ participation has tremendously helped fund various projects here in the Philippines alone. With the funds coming from these races, National Geographic Channel was able to plant 36,000 fruit-bearing trees in the Abuan watershed, Isabela, in the Sierra Madres region. The farmers living in the vicinity of the watershed were allowed to harvest the fruits from these trees. In 2014, Earth Day Run’s proceeds funded the training of fishermen affected by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) on how to make and use fiberglass boats. In 2015, NGC was able to provide portable solar-powered lighting kits to the Tawbuid Mangyan tribesfolk in Mindoro, giving them and Forest Rangers’ camps safe and sustainable light sources off the grid.

Once again, we are calling everyone to register for the Earth Day Run. Let’s help our communities. Let’s help save the Earth. It’s the only ONE we have.
