END HUNGER: WALK THE WORLD 2011 for a cause

hunger is a major problem worldwide. all your faculties will not work well with an empty stomach. lucky for us who don't experience extreme hunger, we have at least a little muffin, and even go for a costly frapp or coffee and have a chitchat with friends. with money to spend, our problem is to choose what to eat, what to drink, where to eat. but what about those whom we don't know? we don't realize that there are a lot of people who think if they have something to eat or if they can survive another day. researches have shown that there are 1 out 6 children go to school hungry resulting to poor performance in school. and levels have been increasing that most kids do not graduate from school. worse, they die in the middle of hunger. fighting hunger is one of the millennium development goals of the United Nations which include the Philippines. and as one with the world, the special unit of UN fighting against hunger, World Food Program, has initiated a campaign to address MDG #1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. this initiative is called Walk the World which goes for 6 years already worldwide. a simultaneous walk and run against hunger from 5AM of May 29, 2011 at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds in Pasay City invites all running enthusiasts who advocate the eradication of hunger and to help people improve their lives by eating healthy. there are three categories in which a person/group can join: 3K - Open Category, Php 250, with event shirt, starts at 6AM 5K - Men/Women's Categories, Php 500, with race kit, singlet and baller ID, starts at 545AM 10K- Group Category, Php 10,000, with race kit, singlet, baller ID, button pins and team plaque, starts at 530AM see last year's video of Walk the World featuring World Food Program Ambassador KC Concepcion who joined hundreds of people in the walk.

Proceeds will go to the feeding program in Mindanao where KC had immersed and firsthand witnessed the situation. the concentration in Mindanao is not an easy task that's why we have to help the World Food Program deliver to the needs of the people in that area. You can also do your part even if you cannot attend the Walk on May 29th.
