Philippines Red Cross Million Volunteer Run 2013 in Catanduanes

Sixteen hours estimated time via shuttle bus/ boat or one hour and fifteen minutes via airplane to reach the town of Virac, Catanduanes – my hometown.  Have you heard it? Or you’ve ever visited? Catanduanes is one of the hundred islands in the Philippines, it locates eastern part of the country, directly facing the Pacific Ocean. Still part of the Bicol Region.

Barring from different beautiful mountains, beaches and this island are  reaching in different historical places, the one that I remember is the Bato Church. When it comes to activities, one of the best is the street dancing or “Padadyaw” (if I’m not mistaken”) during Catandungan Festival. I have lots of wonderful memories and experiences of my childhood days in my hometown. Apart from the pride of this town, Catanduanes Island is popular in weather news, most of the storm entered in the country passing in this island.

Almost eight years ago when I was there and now as part of the running  community I am glad and happy to share that no matter how far this island they also reached by the community to spread and campaign for the healthy lifestyle. Led by Red Cross, after a year of success with their team on previous Red Cross Million Volunteer Run last year where thousand of runners unleashed and supported the advocacy run in Manila, now Red Cross Catanduanes Chapter is ready to precede changes through running with a sporting theme this year “Run For Humanity”.

Philippine Red Cross is completing its extensive network of one million volunteers in order to deliver our services effectively and successfully through the “Million Volunteer Run”.
