Lighting Up One Life after Another: Energizer Night Race 2013

Many would think that the Energizer Night Race is just another trend… running + night + lights = fun! But let’s get down to what the race is truly about: it is about spreading “PositivEnergy”; it’s about making people realize how important energy is and how it should be conserved; and it’s about creating a chance for our less privileged countrymen to experience “light” not as a luxury but as a right and privilege.

Not many understand this fact of life but somehow through the Energizer Night Race happening all over the world, somehow a portion of people now has a “brighter” image of what this cause is all about. And it does not hurt to learn, while having fun in the process.

That’s why Energizer Philippines makes every single of its race more interesting and enjoyable for the participants. In fact, at the recently concluded night race last May 4, 2013 at the Bonifacio Global City, aside from giving away prizes for the top finishers, they also had a side contest through the singlet design contest where the participants with the most creative and best “quote” also goes home with special prizes.

Aside from the usual route as well, they also created the dark tunnel, where the creative singlets will glow impressively in the dark. This is a favorite among the runners… some even disregarded their time by stopping and taking a photo of themselves. This goes to show that the run is not really about who gets the fastest time, it is really about having fun and doing something significant for the benefit of the society.

Of course, PRC INC was there as well, not missing the moment to support such noble cause. And although I wasn’t able to run, being there and seeing the beauty and nobility of the race is good enough for me. It gives me hope that people can really help one another, in the most creative ways possible.
