OCAI Run – A Rare Race in Ortigas Center

The Ortigas Center Association, Inc. (OCAI) has decided to partner with the Rotary Club of Ortigas Center (RCOC) to hold the Run for the benefit of the various humanitarian projects of RCOC.  OCAI and RCOC have in turn joined hands with Balance Lifestyle Fitness Club of Discovery Suites to promote the South Pole Expedition 2010, the very first expedition to be undertaken by a Filipino extreme outdoor sportsman and quintessential climate change advocate, Coach Bobby del Castillo. The expedition to the 1,170 kilometer trek through the sub-zero icelands of the South Pole, where the much-feared climate change has had the most drastic effects, not only aims to show the world the adverse effects of climate change, it also hopes to bring as many prayers and pledges with him for peace, environmental awareness, and environmental involvement.

With Rudy Biscocho as the run’s race director, all the people behind the event are aiming to accomplish the goals of the Rotary Club of Ortigas Center and Balance Lifestyle Fitness, and thus for the first time, this 27th of June, 2010, at 5:00 in the morning, more than four thousand (4,000) runners will run along the streets of Ortigas Center and surrounding areas, for the 3k, 5k, and 10k distances of the first ever OCAI RUN. While on the night before the running event, June 26, 2010, there will be a kick-off benefit concert at the Discovery Suite’s Frontage, where the admission is free.

All the proceeds of the OCAI Run and the benefit concert will go to the humanitarian projects of the Rotary Club of Ortigas Center and the South Pole Expedition 2010.
