Last December 2, 2018, the happiest and heart-filling fun run of the year came to reality – the Bayanirun 2018 at the Liwasang Ullalim, CCP Complex, Pasay City.
Bayanirun 2018 was a fund raising activity that gathered volunteer runners to support their own advocacies such as Environmental Conservation & Protection, Animal Rights, Human Rights, Child Support and Education and other socio-environmental advocacies.
The activity was organized by one of FEED Living Legacy partners, iVolunteer Philippines, a non-profit organization that is the Philippines’ first volunteer portal built BY volunteers FOR volunteers to spread the passion of volunteerism in the country.
Fostering Education and Environment for Development, Inc. (FEED) was thrilled to be invited to be one of the beneficiary organizations of this laudable cause. It was also a great venue to share FEED volunteering opportunities with the runners and other participants. FEED together with the Mondo Project team, set-up a booth and joined the run.
Families, friends, teams and individuals pledged and supported the activity. A total of 700 runners ran for the 10km, 5km and 3km distances. The event started with some welcome talks from iVolunteer, followed by an energizing Zumba dance to warm-up the runners. 10k runners started the earliest, followed by the 5k runners and on the last stage, the 3k runners.
The rain blessed the runners up to the finish line. What a fun and exciting activity it was for all! Representatives from different NGOs went to the stage to discuss their causes and invited the runners to visit their booths. An amazing remark from iVolunteer concluded the event – which finished clean, without litter, junk, plastics and bottles from the all the participants.
The Mondo Project team is glad to participate in such heart-warming and eye-opening activities. We are honored to see how the organizers put up this activity as well as how they share the energy and love of nature. Indeed, we are not alone in our cause for the environment. Heroes can be seen everywhere, doing huge things with even small contributions to our planet and peoples health.
