Take green strides this Philippine Environment Month and get moving for the environment!

Put on your running shoes and start running for the environment.

Advocating for physical wellness and environmental conservation, the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc., through its One To Tree (RAFI OTT) Program, is proud to launch its first virtual run, “Run2Plant.” Co-presented by Pinoy Fitness and in partnership with Cebu Pacific, Saving Daigdig, and official media partner, Radio Mindanao Foundation, this exciting sports event will take place from June 1-30, 2023. By participating in the virtual run, participants can contribute to reforestation efforts and make a positive impact on the environment.

The Run2Plant Virtual Run offers participants an opportunity to make a tangible difference by contributing to reforestation and greening projects. Registered runners contribute to the native tree growing of RAFI OTT and support partner farmers in Borbon, Cebu. The run aims to plant 5,000 native trees in Cebu.

Providing flexibility and convenience, the virtual run enables participants to complete their run at their preferred time and location. Whether running solo or in a group, participants can choose to run from either 10K, 25K, or 50K, while embracing the spirit of unity and environmental consciousness.

“Just in time for the Philippine Environment Month, we are very thrilled to announce the return of Run2Plant. We invite everyone to strap on their running shoes and run for the environment. More than the physical benefits that running and exercise bring to our bodies, we also contribute to the overall well-being of our planet. This project is a manifestation of OTT’s overall goal which is to increase our forest cover and to alleviate the immense effects of climate change on our planet. By combining the joy of running with the impactful act of native tree planting, we actively contribute to the restoration of our environment,” shares Anthony Dignadice, RAFI OTT Program Director.

Apart from running with a purpose, participants gets a chance to win two domestic roundtrip tickets from Cebu Pacific and other exciting prizes. Upon completion of the running period, all participants will also receive an e-Certificate of Tree Growing, a finisher medal and a finisher shirt.
