On the Use of Singlet and Costume

Except in the 3K category, you may opt to run in your most comfortable running outfit.  However, if you want to run in costume in your chosen race category, that will surely add fun. 

Wearing the issued race singlet is not mandatory.  However, those who will not be in costume are encouraged to wear them to help race marshals identify non-legitimate runners.  Anything other than the normal running outfit will be considered a costume.  A headdress or mask is already a costume.

Isang Litrong Liwanag (1 Liter of Light)
Spreading Sustainable Lighting Across the Philippines and the World

Isang Litrong Liwanag started out as a small project by MyShelter Foundation’s Executive Director Illac Diaz in a pilot community at San Pedro, Laguna. 

The project has turned viral not only in the country but also in the world as well; it simply follows a simple formula:

used plastic bottles + water + bleach + Filipino ingenuity = 1 Liter of Light

The solar bottle bulb applies the concept of appropriate technologies – the use of simple tools, labor-saving machines and easily replicable technologies to address the basic needs of the communities. By using readily available materials and the natural source of light – the sun, the people in the community are empowered to use a cheap and long-term alternative to electric light,” shared Mr. Diaz.

MyShelter Foundation is a non-stock, non-profit, non-government organization, established in 2005 by its founder and executive director Illac Diaz with the mission to lead social change in the Philippines through social enterprise, alternative construction and appropriate technologies as innovative solutions to the country’s problems.

The foundation aims to create affordable and replicable technologies to empower grassroots entrepreneurs to generate wealth and sustainable solutions to poverty. Through its capacity building programs and entrepreneurial blueprints, it focuses on the unconventional thinking of looking for applicable solutions that unleash the capacity of the less privileged to create income while improving their own communities.

To date, MyShelter, with the help and support of its partners, sponsors and volunteers has pioneered groundbreaking projects such as Pier One Seafarer’s Dormitory, the Design Against the Elements, DAtE ( competition, the Bottle School Project and Isang Litrong Liwanag.
