ABS-CBN Foundation managing director, Ms. Gina Lopez (3rd from left) held hands in union with rest of the organizers and sponsors of the "One Run, One Philippines" for the Run for the Pasig River presscon held at the official hotel partner, Torre Venezia Suites in Timog, Quezon City.

"This is your country, this is your city. We can only have the country and the city that we dream and hope for, if we actively aspire for it. And we manifest that aspiration in actual action. So if you want a country which is clean and beautiful, communities in love, peace and harmony, and our rivers that are clean and beautiful and not smelly, come and run on that day. Make a statement, wake up early and run with the rest of us and say we want the Pasig River clean. and if you do this, we will clean that river, " the ever charming, supportive, brave and active Ms. Gina Lopez said. 

In relation to that, on October 6, 2013, Sunday, marks the 5th year of her dedicated hard-work to clean up the Pasig River, via another advocacy run entitled "One Run, One Philippines" which will take place not only in one venue but in 5 cities simultaneously. The event will have different environmental beneficiaries: 
  • Quezon City (Kapit Bisig para sa Ilog Pasig’s Run for the Pasig River) – Rehabilitation of esteros of Manila and Quezon City
  • Cebu (RNG Kapamilya Run) – Coastal conservation in Daan Paz
  • Davao (RNG Kapamilya Run) – Ecotourism projects in Marilog Tourist Center
  • Bacolod (RNG Kapamilya Run) – Mangrove and livelihood projects in Punta Taytay, Sum-ag River rehabilitation, and ecotourism projects in Bacolod City Water District Campuestuhan Watershed
  • Los Angeles (TFC Global Kapamilya Run) – Ecotourism projects under the Green Initiative of Bantay Kalikasan

This advocacy run is still part of the ABS-CBN's 60th Anniversary Celebration in cooperation with Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP), Regional Network Group (RNG) and The Filipino Channel (TFC). Since this will be the fifth year of the "Run for the Pasig River" advocacy, safety, proper security measures and well regulation of traffic will be implemented; the Quezon City leg will be held at Quezon Memorial Circle (QMC) with 6:00 AM gunstart for both 3K and 5K categories. The starting line is located at the Technohub overpass. Participants will go straight along Commonwealth Ave. then head to QMC for the finish line. 

Lanes that will be used for the race will be closed at 2 AM on the event day, while the two outermost lanes on both sides of Commonwealth Ave. will remain open. The motorists are advised to take alternate routes if possible as heavy traffic is expected. 

On the other hand, the three provincial legs will start at 4:30 AM  with its 21K category followed by the 5K and 10K at 5:30 AM. Starting line of Cebu leg is at SM City Cebu; Davao leg is at Abreeza Mall, while Bacolod leg is at the Provincial Capital Lagoon, whereas the Los Angeles leg, will begin at 7:30 AM with its 1K Kiddie Run, 5K and 10K categories at Burbank, California. 

You see, all these happenings wouldn't be complete without the presence and support of the Kapamilya stars, right? In Quezon City, the run will be headed by Anne Curtis, Kim Chiu, Karylle and model-blogger Erwann Heusaff; Paulo Avelino and Jayson Abalos will be at the Cebu leg; Maja Salvador, Aaron Villaflor, Bryan Termulo will be in Davao City while Joem Bascon, Paul Jake Castillo, Bangs Garcia and Jake Cuenca will lead the Los Angeles leg. 

The funds raised by the four consecutive advocacy runs that started since 2009, had aided in the rehabilitation of a total of 16 esteros in Manila and Quezon City to this date, under the ABS-CBN Foundation's Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig and Pasig Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) with the help also of the supporters of the annual "Run for the Pasig River like the private donors and government agencies. Just wanna share you my article about the amazing results this campaign had made our metro, for further knowledge, hope you would care to visit this.

And this will only continue if we share one goal and one spirit. Together, we can all do it! So, for our children and for the next generations to come, let's all do this, let's support "One Run, One Philippines" for the rehabilitation of not only the Pasig River but for the lives of the people... for our lives.
