The Biodiversity Run 2010 happening on September 4, 2010 is an advocacy race aimed at promoting the rich biodiversity of Mt. Makiling Forest and nearby ecosystems. The race promotes road running as an affordable avenue to physical fitness, mental well-being, ecological awareness, and enhancement of local tourism.
Proceeds from this event will go to the ASEAN Biodiversity Fund (ABF), an endowment fund developed and established to support the implementation of biodiversity-related programs in the ASEAN region. Contributions to the ABF are open to governments, the private sector, organizations, foundations, and individuals.
Participants to this activity will help to raise funds for biodiversity programs and will serve as your participation in the global celebration of the International Year of Biodiversity. It will also be your response to the national proclamation of the Philippine Government, enjoining everyone to initiate and involve in activities to support the celebration.
