This official run of the Kadayawan Sa Dabaw Festival 2012 will be used as a vehicle to launch a massive awareness campaign on the state of Davao’s watershed.
It is organized to provide a venue for Davaoeños to actively participate in the campaign by joining the run and pledge their commitment to become ambassadors of protecting the environment especially our watershed. The run is also a campaign to help the environment by encouraging every runner to practice 3R (Recycle, Re-use, Reduce).
The Phoenix Kadayawan Run 2012 is for the benefit of the Talomo-Lipadas watershed, one of the two watersheds that serve as the main source of water supply in Davao City. As DCWD reveals, Davao City's groundwater is largely dependent on two watersheds, the 235-hectare Malagos watershed in Calinan and the 38,460-hectare Mt. Talomo-Lipadas watershed.
For every runner, one tree shall be planted to help protect and conserve the Talomo-Lipadas watershed. We can act and contribute in our own little way to the watershed area that ensures that Davao City continues to get safe and potable water. By just running on August 12 you have taken the first step because a tree will be planted in your behalf.
We can make a difference NOW.
