From Miles to Trees: How Run2Plant is Planting a Greener Future

The second year of Run2Plant: Para sa Greener Pinas, a virtual run initiative by Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI), a non-profit organization dedicated to upholding human dignity through community-based efforts to improve social, physical, and economic well-being in the Philippines, officially begins under the One To Tree (OTT) program.

Run2Plant, co-presented by Pinoy Fitness and Anytime Fitness, offers Filipinos a fresh approach to running that is not only accessible and pleasurable but also has a positive environmental impact. This June is Philippine Environment Month. RAFI promises to plant one to three trees with each registration, contingent on the run package selected by the participant.

Funds donated from the virtual race will go toward reforestation efforts in Batangas, with the goal of planting 6,000 native trees, expanding forest cover, and mitigating the severe consequences of climate change, all in the name of creating a "Greener Pinas."

700 people from all over the nation participated in the Run2Plant last year. With the help of the Bagacay Tree Growers Association, runners helped adopt 1,450 native trees in Borbon, Cebu, which has the capacity to store 9,900 kg of carbon annually.
