Alongside Knight Rider, The V and Thudercats, the National Geographic Specials or Nat Geo is one of the TV programs that nurtured my young mind. And thanks to Nat Geo [and Indiana Jones! =)], it once influenced me to dream of becoming an archaeologist (the childhood fantasy) and pursue a college course that could help me become a video documentary writer and producer of stories about nature and culture (the dream job). That’s why I exerted all efforts to have a stint in broadcast communications and eventually I was able to work with news and magazine TV programs at the early part of my career.
Well, my career path is another story to tell but all I could say is that I already found my spot in the world and from where I am right now I think I could marry all my interests and enjoy its fusion! =)
So here it is, I’m blogging now about my favorite National Geographic Channel! =)
From the information I got, the National Geographic Channel is mounting the Earth Day Run 2010 on April 18, 2010, 5:00 a.m., at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City in an effort to inspire people to care about the planet and help save the environment. Earth Day Run 2010 will feature 3-kilometer (K), 5K, and 10K races. Entry fees are PhP500 (3K), PhP600 (5K), and PhP700 (10K), inclusive of a limited edition Earth Day Run technical shirt.
Online registration is available at www.natgeorun.com until April 4, 2010. Walk-in registration is also accepted at Nike outlet in Bonifacio High Street and Timex outlets in SM Mall of Asia and North EDSA until April 11, 2010.
Proceeds of Earth Day Run 2010 will support the Design Against the Elements (DAtE), a global architectural design contest that aims to provide a solution to the problems presented by climate change.
“The funds we’ll generate out of the event will help build affordable, sustainable, eco-friendly, and disaster-resistant model houses in Taguig City that can withstand environmental calamities like last year’s Ondoy flooding,” FOX International Channels Territory Director Jude Turcuato said.
So what else could I say but don't run away from your duty but run to save the planet, run in the Nat Geo Earth Day Run 2010!
