Running for a cause is an advocacy that everyone should support and join and then spread the word and encourage others to do so. In this way, we can stay fit together, gain more friends and receive interesting freebies and mementos while helping someone or a group or an organization at the same time. Isn’t this great?
Another Run for a Cause is up on April 18, 2010 at the SM Mall of Asia and this is brought to us by the National Geographic Channel. This time, the National Geographic Channel, being the organizer of this run to save earth, have chosen DAtE or the Design Against the Elements Competition to be the recipients of the proceeds because of the DAtE’s innovative solution to build a community that can withstand adversities and calamity brought about by climate change. The Earth Day Run 2010 is not just any ordinary run for a cause program that will simply give the proceeds to a group of people who will, in turn, bring relief goods, for instance, to the victims of these calamities or catastrophes.
NGC (National Geographic Channel) have chosen DAtE to be the beneficiary because everybody wants a long term solution to the mishaps that climate change brings. DAtE Competition is intending to challenge contestants design a sustainable housing community here in the country that can endure the damage that typhoons, like Typhoon Ondoy and Peping, have and can cause us, which is amplified by the distressing consequence of climate change.
