New World Record For The Philippines

A Unity Run, Run for Education sets a new World Record with 209,000 participants last Sunday January 22,2012 at MOA (Mall of Asia) Philippines.

I am proud to be a part of this history, whether the Guinness will recognize this or not. What matters most is the purpose of this event. The Unity Run is a project of UNTV CEO Mr. Daniel Razon in cooperation with the DepEd (Department of Education) Head Mr. Armin Luistro. The purpose of this project is to provide public schools better facilities and advance technology such as computer rooms and free college education. The target project

is to build a 150 air- conditioned computer rooms complete with facilities for public schools in Metro Manila and other provinces all over the country.


The event was a real


success participated by more than 200,000 runners, in Metro Manila alone. The Unity Run is simultaneous all over the world. Cebu, Bacolod, Tacloban, Davao, Butuan, and Puerto Princesa join the event with thousand runners that make the over-all total of participants to more than 300,000.Out of the country supporters also join the event, such as Canada, New York, Papua New Guinea, South America, Cairns Australia, Singapore, Hongkong , Europe and more. This event is a start for more projects to come, with the real essence of humanity.
