ABOUT THE RUN
This year 2010 marks the celebration of the International Year of Biodiversity (IYB) with the theme “Biodiversity is life. Biodiversity is our life.” The Year aims to raise public awareness of the importance of biodiversity and the consequences of its loss to human survival. The Philippine Government, in support to the IYB celebration, has proclaimed 2010 through Proclamation No. 2003 as the National Year of Biodiversity where everyone is enjoined to initiate activities to support the celebration.
In support of the celebration, ACB is organizing the Biodiversity Run 2010 with the theme “Run for Biodiversity, Biodiversity is Life, Run for Life”. The race is scheduled on 4 September 2010, 6:00 a.m. at the Forestry Campus, UP Los Banos, College, Laguna.
The Biodiversity Run 2010 is an advocacy race aimed at promoting the rich biodiversity of Mt. Makiling Forest and nearby ecosystems. The race promotes road running as an affordable avenue to physical fitness, mental well-being, ecological awareness, and enhancement of local tourism.
Proceeds from this event will go to the ASEAN Biodiversity Fund (ABF), an endowment fund developed and established to support the implementation of biodiversity-related programs in the ASEAN region. Contributions to the ABF are open to governments, the private sector, organizations, foundations, and individuals.
