The local government of Marikina City headed by its Mayor, Mr. Del Guzman and the Rotary Club of Marikina are once again staging the Marikina Watershed DEL Run3 on April 13, 2014, 4:00 in the afternoon at the Marikina Sports Center.
During the official launch of the run last Monday at the Cafe Kapitan Restaurant in Marikina City, Mayor Del explained that the proceeds of the run will be used to raise funds for the undertaking of various tree planting activities covering an area of 10,000 hectares in consonance with the National Greening Program (NGP), and intensify law enforcement in the area.
Mayor Del also emphasized that the funds will also be used to develop a buffer zone and social fence against urban sprawl, and provide alternative livelihood to settlers and indigenous people in the area to wean them away from kaingin and charcoal–making, two activities largely blamed for tree loss inside the watershed.
Registration is now ongoing and will have a fix registration fee of P600.00 for either the 5k or 10k run.
