Knowledge Channel’s KaRUNungan 2010, November 28

Knowledge Channel Foundation, Inc. (KCFI) launches KaRUNungan 2010, which aims to help generate awareness and support for the continued resource and learning gaps in the Philippine education system. The funds it will raise through this campaign will be used to produce instructional shows in English, Science and Math, using “virtual” teachers on air. KCFI wishes to help the majority of elementary and high school students, who are still unable to attain adequate mastery of their lessons.

Through KaRUNungan 2010 and various running events, KCFI enjoins the growing Filipino community of runners to champion the cause of Philippine education, and give Filipino students their second wind that will help them reach the finish line. As KaRUNungan 2010’s theme says, “Every Learner, A Finisher.”


KaRUNungan 2010 Manila will be held on November 28 at the Meralco Compound in Ortigas. A total of 5,000 runners are expected to join the event.

Runners taking part in the ING New York City Marathon 2010 can go the extra mile by dedicating their run to helping marginalized public school students. They can do this by asking friends and supporters to donate $1 for every kilometer they reach on November 7.
