Votenet Philippines, in partnership with Lighthouse Bible Baptist Church, Onevote Movement and Athletes in Action will hold a 5K Fun Run, dubbed iRun for H.O.P.E.
This will be held on April 27, 2013 (Saturday), from 5am - 7am, at the CCP Complex.
The 5K Fun Run aims to raise awareness about the 5K Criteria for choosing candidates to vote for during elections:
- Karakter (Character as a Leader)
- Karanasan (Experience in Governance)
- Kakayanan (Ability to Govern)
- Konkretong Plataporma (Platform of Governance Programs)
- Koneksyon (Connections: dynastic, political, financial)
It also aims to raise volunteers for pollwatchers under the Onevote Movement. Onevote Movement is an accredited citizens' watch partner of the Commission of Elections (COMELEC).
A prayer gathering: Watch and Pray for HOPE, follows after the fun run. This will be held at 8:00-11:00 am at the Bulwagan ng Panginoon (Folk Arts Theater).
This event is part of Votenet Philippines' advocacy to encourage Christian churches to be active participants as Filipino citizens so that we may have an Honest, Orderly, Peaceful Elections; and as God's instruments for choosing elected leaders so that that country may achieve Good Governance.
For more information about the fun run, please call the PCEC Office: (+ 632) 913.1655 to 57, and ask for Jo Eguico.
