Filipinos Unite to Run for Education on 2012

Run, even for one day! Help, just for one day!

Calling again all runners and non-runners to take part of another fun run with a noble cause of helping 150 public schools over the country by providing computer laboratories and other educational needs of the students. Let's help alleviate poverty in our nation by educating our children. Be part of the solution! 

In fact, of all the running events I plugged in my blog, I never had the chance to participate even once. I think this is the time, January 22, 2012 to run and prove myself that I can run and at the same time, help the children in their quest of quality education. 
The event will take place in nine different locations, namely National Capital Region, Puerto Princesa City, Cebu City, Tacloban City, Bacolod City, Iloilo City, Davao City, Butuan City and Cagayan de Oro City with expected 200,000 runners to unite in one day for one goal.

Global Engagement Summit

What is GES? GES, founded in 2005, is completely student-founded, student-organized, and student-run by a team of 50-60 Northwestern undergraduate students. Through our annual Summit, yearlong programming, and staff curriculum, we build the capacity of the next generation of global change makers. Delegates and staff come together to understand the challenges of and opportunities for their engagement; to hone the skills and mindsets that will enable them to better plan, execute, and participate in change-based projects; and to connect with like-minded peers from around the world. GES is the only conference of its kind for students, as it not only provides them with the tangible skills and resources to move beyond good intentions towards action, but also equips them to think more critically about their efforts and ask the right questions when going out and making change in the world.

The Summit Every April, approximately 80 student delegates from universities across the globe come to North…

The Best Cebu Blogs Awards aims to recognize the existence and relevance of blogging in Cebu’s local blogging scene by pooling the finest online publishers in the Queen City of the South.   It also aspires to augment Cebu bloggers’ influence in the general cyber community worldwide. by Best Cebu Blogs Awards.

I didn't expect that I will win this year's Best Cebu Entertainment/Event Blog to the extent that I didn't come to the Awards Night, not because I'm not respecting the night but I do have an equally important night with CIT University Christmas Party. 
Not to forget, I would like to thank Mr. Mark "Tanom" Monta for founding and successfully organizing the Best Cebu Blogs Awards with the working committee and all the people who helped in the establishment of the awarding body. Kudos to the future years of bloggers who will be inspired to blog more and tell the world that Cebuanos do have the capability to share information in an innovative way!
