The PATIKAR-RUN organized by Halina’t Ating Sagipin ang Inang Kalikasan (HASIK), an environmental non-stock and non-profit organization in San Jose, Batangas, hopes to awaken and send alarm signals to the whole Province of Batangas about the extent of pollution caused by the dumping of solid and live-stock wastes into the rivers that flows to Calumpang River down to Batangas Bay. The disaster 1926 where Calumpang River overflowed killing numerous people and wreaking havoc to economic life might happen again. In 2012, at the height of typhoon “Ofel”, Calumpang River overflowed prompting the evacuation of some residents.
Proceeds of this run for a cause will be part of the initial funds for the rehabilitation and development of the Malaking Tubig, the river from which the town derived its name “San Jose de Malaquing Tubig”.
PATIKAR is a Batangas term for high speed dash to pursue or evade a threat or target. That is why the event is called PATIKAR-RUN.
