A nationwide run will be mounted on January 13, 2013 for the benefit thousands of Filipino school children, who have yet to have classrooms where they could effectively listen to their teachers and learn lessons.
“Run for 10” will be staged for the benefit of TEN Moves!, the social mobilization campaign of Bayanihang Pampaaralan that seeks to raise funds for the construction of 10,000 classrooms nationwide by encouraging individuals to donate Php 10.00 everyday for 10 months or a lump sum of Php 3,000.00.
In Metro Manila, Run for 10 will stat off at the Ayala Triangle Gardens, Makati City, with 2.5 km, 5 km and 10 km race distances. Simultaneous runs will also be held in at least 10 other key areas nationwide such as Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cbu, Dipolog, Dumaguete, Legazpi, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zamboanga and Zamboanga Sibugay.
Run for 10 expects to gather 2,500 Filipinos in Metro Manila alone who will lace up their running shoes and make their move for education. The Department of Education, a key partner in the TEN Moves! advocacy, welcomes the initiative.
