ABS-CBN Foundation is once again calling on participants to join the foot-race to raise awareness and funds for the rehabilitation of the rivers in the metro. September 30, 2012 will mark the fourth round of its annual advocacy marathon, Run for the Pasig River, in line with its ongoing environmental initiative Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP).
This year, Run for the Pasig River aims to gather enough finances and support to rehabilitate the waterways of Quezon City, San Juan, Mandaluyong and Makati.
There will be three major event categories for the advocacy run along Commonwealth Avenue. The first is the 15K Ride & Roll with a 4:00 a.m. gunstart. Next is the 15K Commonwealth Challenge Run with a 4:10 a.m. gunstart. Finally, there’s the 5K Morning Madness Run with a 6:00 a.m. gunstart. The starting and finish line will be the Quezon City Memorial Circle.
Registration for this year’s Run for the Pasig River will open on July 16, 2012 in SM North EDSA, 2nd Floor Cinema C Lobby; on July 20 in SM Megamall, Lower Ground Level, Building A; and SM Mall of Asia, Ground Floor Main Mall. Merchandise booths will also be set up in the registration areas. Proceeds of the merchandise will also go to river rehabilitation.
