Freedom Run 2011 – November 27, 2011

freedom-run-2011-up-poster

Freedom is an endowment that Filipinos sometimes neglect. It is more often associated to independence, as in from colonizers in 1896 and from dictatorship in 1986. Now that the Philippines is sovereign with a democratic political system, is the country really free? What is true freedom?

On 27 November 2011, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Liberty (FNF), together with the National College for Public Administration and Governance, and APEX are organizing a Freedom Run that could rouse the public’s consciousness on the value of freedom that they enjoy today. Acknowledging that this kind of activity appeals to all ages and across all sectors, FNF endeavored in this project to engage more people and hopefully inspire positive action to address issues that restrain them from maximizing the benefits of freedom. For this year’s Freedom Run, runners shall dash to a finish line where they can say “i am free from corruption.” The date of the event is significant as it is also the birthday of Ninoy Aquino who exceedingly contributed to the country’s freedom from tyranny and the Filipinos’ self-actualization.

  15. @Avhic if u want you can buy my race kit kaso 3k lng lng sya. May importante lakad kci family so Kindly email me @kite10310@yahoo.com

  16. A great event, well organized, lovely people, and festive mood. A nice run with fresh air and a clean green environment. More running events should be organized in UP!!!!!!

  17. Overall – Super Awesome…

    ok na sana kung naging “organized” ung organizers sa releasing ng race kits. Dapat they made all kits available for release even before ng run. Nagkagulo tuloy sa claiming. Yung akin, courier nga, singlet lang ang laman. wala man lang kahit ano, kahit ung race bib wala. Kundi pa tinawagan ang head office, hindi madadala yung singlet. Good thing din na pinadala nila kahit yung singlet. If ever, wala akong singlet during nung run itself.

    Please improve next time. RUN WAS SO GOOD, it’s just the organizers who failed to exert more effort for the runners..

  18. kelan at saan na po pwede claim yung kulang na singlet(4 pcs)?
    di po kasi na-control sa organizers booth ang release ng kits.
    yung iba kinukuha ang di kanila even may name ng ibang participants.
