Eco-Dash: The Bottle School Run

Tie your shoelaces, baby, and run for a sustainable solution.

Eco Dash: The Bottle School Run

Because frankly, the world needs more heroes and who else but us can provide innovative solutions to our problems.

This year, Eco-Dash is committing to raise funds for the first bottle school in the Visayas. The beneficiary of the bottle school would be The School of the Seas, a school that teaches the experiential learning on taking care of the seas in Sta. Fe, Bantayan.

As you register at designated establishments/venues, please bring at least 2 plastic bottles (1.5 or 2 Liters). These bottles and your registration fee would go a very long way to answer the need for additional schools for our children. In case you have more than a caseload or even just a few of these bottles yet opt not to run for whatever reason, you may also ask a friend to bring these to the venue. That way, you can still participate.

Registration forms can be found here. The route map is also here.

The Ayala Center Cebu, one of the main sponsors, will be giving away raffle prizes for everyone:

  1. 20 tickets for the Pacquiao-Margarito Fight
  2. 2 digicams and timex watch for 10K runners
  3. 2 Ipod Shuffles for 5K runners
  4. 2 GCs from The Spa at Cebu for 3K runners

I can’t promise that I’ll be joining but I’m going to collect bottles in the mean time. 🙂
And oh, read more about The Bottle School Project:

INSIDER INFO: The celebrated social entrepreneur Mr. Illac Diaz will be running for the 10k event. Who knows you’d get to rub elbows with him there? 😉
