Bataan – Run for Light – April 10, 2011


After the success of the Bottle School Run, MyShelter Foundation continues to pursue its mission to create a system of sustainability and replicability through its capability-building and employment generating projects.

My Shelter foundation will soon be launching a new project on Feb, 23, 2011 (details will be disclosed after the launching). In line with this, we are organizing a benefit run dubbed, “Bataan Run for Light: A hundred today, thousands tomorrow.” This would be a pioneering project of My Shelter Foundation headed by Mr. Illac Diaz. The run will be included as one of the highlights in the celebration of Bataan Day.
