Ten Moves! Run For 10

Are you a TEN Mover?  Well I am!  To be one, you should be one with us in promoting TEN Moves.   Also, make sure to have a spare  P10 coin (hehe)!

To give you an idea, TEN Moves! is the fundraising campaign of Bayanihang Pampaaralan, a private sector initiative to help address the classroom shortage in public schools all over the Philippines.  While the government's budget for the building of classrooms is increasing, the resources are still not enough to fully address the classroom backlog and  provide Filipino students nationwide with adequate learning facilities that will lead to improved education outcomes.
The entire nation is encouraged to donate at least P10, hoping to build up to P 300 a month (that's P10 per day of every month).    The campaign said  to raise enough resources to build 10,000 classrooms in public schools all over the Philippines.

With all these in mind, a campaign was made in light of this.   Dubbed as  TEN Movers! Run for 10, which is set to  take place on January 13, 2013  at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City, and will be organized simultaneously in 10 other provinces in the Philippines, namely Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Dipolog, Dumaguete, Legazpi, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zamboanga, and Zamboanga Sibugay.

Registration will open on December 20, 2012.   Fees are: P200 (2.5km), P400 (5km), and P500 (10km). Watch out for further announcements on the registration details! The more you run, the more classrooms you build!
Run for 10 is considered a platform to ramp up the support and donations for The Entire Nation (TEN) Moves! It is a high-visibility activity that enables various sectors of society to come together and literally “move” for TEN Moves!
Run for 10 also gives life to the concept of the entire nation moving for one common cause – the goal of building 10,000 classrooms throughout the Philippines – as it conducts simultaneous runs in key cities nationwide.
Here is how to register:
Interested participants can register at the T-Shirt Project branches located at Glorietta, Trinoma, and Market! Market!. Registration starts on December 20, 2012. The registration fee is P200 for 2.5k, P400 for 5k, and P500 for 10k.
