The “Energizer LED Headlamps Run”, as i would like to call this race, is again being staged in Manila on May 4, 2013 to brighten the homes of our less fortunate countrymen who have no access to electricity. This will be the second Energizer Night Race to be held in Manila and will feature a 5 and 10-kilometer distance race .
Energizer Philippines, together with One Million Lights, a global nonprofit organization, have joined forces to improve the daily lives of children and adults by providing clean and healthy solar lighting pledges to provide clean, safe, affordable solar lighting to rural communities around the world, including the Phulippines through international distribution programs.
In the Philippines, the donations are made in the form of solar-powered LED lanterns and bulbs. These will enable children to study at night and adults to extend their workday, all while helping to improve household health and safety.
Energizer Philippines has already donated 23 million hours of solar light through its work with One Million Lights (11 million hours in 2011 and 12 million hours in 2012), and is pledging to donate an additional 13 million hours in honor of the 2013 Energizer Night Race series worldwide.
To spice up the run, organizers have also given runners the liberty of showing off their creativity by designing their singlets using neon-fabric paint pens. Runners with the Best Singlet Design and Best Message will get to take home prizes from Energizer.
Participants can also post their photos after the race on Energizer’s Facebook page and get a chance to win Best Before and After Photos, Best Action shot, and Best Light Art Photo.
