Gawad Kalinga 5K Walk - 4/18

3/16/2009 12:01:00 AM
I'm on the road right now. In DC until the week's end and then Texas the week after that. I'm hoping that when I return, it'll be warmer out. And one thing that comes with all that warm weather - charity walks. I've got friends doing all sorts of walks this year: MS, Breast Cancer, Alzheimer's ... so far. Here's a new one that's worth checking out: The Gawad Kalinga 5K Walk.

Gawad Kalinga (GK) translated in English means to “to give care”, and it is an alternative solution to the blatant problem of poverty not just in the Philippines but in the world. GK’s vision for the Philippines is a slum-free, squatter-free nation through a simple strategy of providing land for the landless, homes for the homeless, food for the hungry and as a result providing dignity and peace for every Filipino.

The walk will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2009 from 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM.
