The Multiple Intelligence International School Fun Run

Multiple Intelligence International School, an advocate for sustainable schools and the multiple intelligence framework implemented in the United States and other countries, is hosting a run-by-any-means fun run on March 8, 2 p.m., at the University of the Philippines Diliman Academic Oval.

Part of the “Green MOVEment #4GreenPH” campaign, the fun run or fun walk is inviting mommies and daddies with their kids, grandparents, even those in wheelchairs; and anybody with a heart for the environment to be part of the awareness activity. 

“The activity aims to encourage everyone to make a stand to ensure a green future for today's kids,” says Joy Abaquin, founding directress at MIIS. Kids can wear costumes made of recycled or upcycled materials. The best “green” costume gets a reward at the end of the race. 

Cash prizes, medals, and certificates will be given away to the fastest, youngest, oldest runners and the family with the most number of participants. Participants can choose either the 3K or the 5K category. Both are open to parents, kids, and running enthusiasts of all ages. 

Other activities include a performance by MIIS students using indigenous instruments. The school, in cooperation with Smart Communications, will also be recognizing the 2015 Multiple Intelligence awardees. These are personalities who have changed the lives of Filipinos through their particular intelligence in the area of sustainable development. 

The Green MOVEment will benefit the Cambantoc Reforestation Project, a six-year-old MIIS endeavor that helps in the replanting and maintenance of trees in the Laguna watershed, promote environmental literacy in public schools, and fund the school community’s Green School Movement projects. 

“Advocating for a sustainable future for our children is a shared responsibility of all parents. We invite everyone to lead the way by joining the fun run or fun walk,” enjoins Abaquin.
