The Day the World Ran for Education
Once again, Kuya (big brother in tagalog) Daniel Razon proved that any good deed will not yield bad results.
Kahit Isang Araw Lang Unity Run (Just One Day Unity Run) which was held on January 22, 2012 aims to provide computer laboratories to selected public schools in the Philippines. The unity run was organized in seven different points in the Philippines: 2 in Luzon, 3 in Visayas, and 2 in Mindanao. Not only that, despite the time zone differences, Unity Run was also held in different parts of the world. There are runners in Europe, Asia, South America, and North America. This is a sign that everyone all over the world are ready to support the noble cause for our poor yet deserving students.
With God’s help, the event was successful. Not only in the number of registrations gathered but also it has earned enough for the DepEd’s (Department of Education) Adopt-a-School project. Runners also include our police force and different sectors of the Philippine Army, which only shows that they value education. Students from different levels and schools (both public and private) also participated. Check this link to see other runners all over the world.
Just for one day, The Philippines and other countries ran for the benefit of Filipino students. Just for one day, Daniel Razon’s advocacy has given everyone all over the world a chance to support the education sector. Just for one day, everybody from different government and private sectors was united for the improvement of public schools. Just for one day, the whole world ran for education!
All of this, with God’s help, Just for one day!
