Nat Geo EDR eyes 15,000 runners
Eco warriors will converge for the ninth straight year to celebrate International Earth Day and vie for honors in the Earth Day Run 2018 on April 22 at SM Mall of Asia grounds in Pasay City.
This year’s edition will train the spotlight on the global issue of water shortage and will help fund rain storage tanks in remote Mindoro communities.
Nat Geo EDR has been attracting thousands across Asia, all pledging to help save the planet. In the Philippines, National Geographic is eyeing 15,000 runners in the 3K, 5K, 10K and 21K categories.
In the past, Nat Geo supported organizations and communities such as the World Wide Fund for Nature, Tawbuid Mangyan Tribe in Mindoro and the Abuan Watershed in Sierra Madre.
