I was on my way home and listening to my favorite FM station, Love Radio, when I heard a fun run that Manila Broadcasting Company is spearheading. The fun run supports a project that aims to help implement a sustainable approach to cleaning and protecting marine and coastal resources.  It was then when I remembered the race event that FFS mentioned several weeks ago.  If you love to run and at the same time supports the clean-up of Manila Bay then don't miss this fun run.

Manila Broadcasting Company partners with Smart Communications, M. Lhuillier, Enervon and Cobra Energy Drink in mounting MBC’s first-ever Manila Bay Clean-Up Fun Run, which will take place on July 17.

The event is open to all interested participants and will feature races in the 3K, 5K, 10K, and 21K divisions for both men and women. Trophies and cash prizes will be given to the top three winners in each race division. There will also be a special award for the biggest delegation or group that submits a minimum of twenty-five (25) paying entries

would there be a finisher's shirt or a medal?

Daves said...

there was no mention about a finisher's shirt or medal. i want to assume that in order to be able to give more for the rehabilitation of the pasig river, they may have deferred other costs

Daves said...
