This year’s Earth Day Run (EDR) is expected to draw 20,000 runners to fill in slots for 5K, 10K, 21K, and 42K (Manila Leg). Powered by National Geographic Channel (NGC), EDR has helped in promoting sustainable living and environmental advocacy using its annual running event as platform to significantly contribute to various environmental causes.
Your support will help raise funds for (1) portable solar powered lighting kits to the Tawbuid Mangyan tribesfolk in Mindoro and forest rangers’ camps which are not connected to power grids, a project of NGC’s environmental partner World Wildlife Fund for Nature and (2) the preservation of our Tamaraws. The kits will eliminate the use of highly flammable kerosene to light up their homes and give them access to a safe energy source that will open opportunities to community development and advancement.

NGC, together with its partners, aims to raise awareness on the benefits of sustainable energy while ensuring that the events at EDR 2015 will involve fun celebrations and shows of skills.
