When In Manila, you can always rely on Boardwalk Business Ventures, Inc. to offer opportunities for our country to become a better place.
Last weekend, the ABS-CBN Foundation, Boardwalk, and other sponsors spearheaded an event dubbed as “A Run For The Pasig River.” This advocacy run aims to encourage Filipinos in taking their part to restore Pasig River’s former beauty and to keep it safe and clean. It also aims to spark awareness to Filipinos on what we can do to protect and give back to our environment. WhenInManila.com was invited to experience this spectacular event!
“A Run for Pasig River” was able to attain a world record by gathering 150,000 individuals all running for the same environmental goal, breaking last year’s record. Being able to witness history unfold before my eyes gave me more hope that our country can strive to be better if we all aim and focus on one positive goal. Seeing the smiles of the people running for the Pasig River,not hindered by the heat of the morning sun, and great number of individuals around them was definitely a sight to behold. It was a sight which can ignite the passion of every Filipino. All of these were made possible by the sponsors and Boardwalk’s Para Sa Kalikasan Campaign.
The run had categories for 3k, 5k, and 10k. Friends, families, colleagues, classmates, and even celebrities with the likes of Derek Ramsay, Jake Cuenca, and Matteo Guidicelli, all came with the intent of doing their part to help save Pasig River. Personally, I felt that I was already part of history just by running in this event. Not only was I able to uphold a healthy lifestyle, but I was also able to be part of a Guinness World Record, and Pasig river’s restoration. After the run, entertainment was provided by various celebrities and rock bands. Not to mention the freebies which are offered all around the activity area. This was truly a great way to culminate the wonderful event!
With this event, Boardwalk showed that their passion does not only lie in fashion and lifestyle but also in doing their part in making our country a better place for us and for future generations to come. During these tough times, we need institutions and events such as this one to fuel the Filipino passion towards our country and our environment. This is definitely something to look forward to When In Manila. Our gratitude to Boardwalk Business Ventures, Inc., for giving us an opportunity to be part of history.
Special thanks to Boardwalk’s Edward Watson for accommodating us during the event and for the official photos as well.
