This is not a New Year's resolution.

On giving back #GLOBEProjectWonderful2014

Human beings are social beings. 

These are big words I Learned way back from high school. I know it would seem unlikely for a running enthusiast like me to mention it Because running is a physical activity that one can do alone. But are we really alone?

I have met so many people engaged in running and most of them run to stay fit while s ome just want to shed off extra pounds.  (Note that I made ​​a distinction Between staying fit and losing weight. You Should They know by now that ' re not one and the same.) 

I met one runner who started running after losing His dad to cardiac arrest. It was such a big blow (I'm sure) that it ticked off His hormones and he run everyday since then. Last time I heard he joined an ultramarathon race - 100 kilometers, I'm not kidding! 

I, on the other hand, run to stay fit. But I also join races, especially those that are for a good cause Such as my Alma Mater's recent family run, are priority aimed to raise scholarship funds for THEIR poor but deserving students. 

Though I can not choose to run alone, I prefer joining races. I do not just run for the heck of it but to also contribute to others.  The sense of community that it GIVES to runners is truly priceless. So every time I run - even if I am alone (in the technical sense) - I know in my heart that I am not truly alone.

With all the challenges that the country is facing - and do not you forget that the government is on its way to privatize 26 public hospitals - what we need are healthy Filipino people with big hearts for those who have been left behind by the so-called development. 

If I have the resources, I would like to organize a run. Proceeds, of course, would go to those who are in need. For the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda? For the mothers seeking shelter and Grace to be Born? For the children residing in poor urban communities? The list goes on and on.

If there's one thing you can give to the Philippines, what is that gift? Blog and get that wish granted.  Read the mechanics here. 

For now, the task completed.

  1. If I had the ability to help the Philippines by giving gift I would give them a Advanced Military equipment - The military served as the protection of a country, it protects not only the higher-ups people but also the overall citizen of the country. To prevent annihilation of our people and country of the possible war that could occur we couldn't afford to be possibly defenseless and just let the invaders take advantage of us without putting much a fight. And its also help and served our people at time of crisis.

    Comment on my blog too thanks!
