The Amazing Raise: A Bike-for-a-cause from Luzon to Mindanao
On June 16, 2012, two Lasallians will use their bicycles to pedal their way across the Philippines to raise funds for scholarship (One La Salle Student Scholarship Endowment Fund) and campaign for the environment (De La Salle Philippine’s Lasallian Institute for the Environment - Project Carbon Neutral -PCN).
In time for the One La Salle Centennial Celebration, this project is an opportunity and a challenge to connect all 17 La Salle schools by bike, covering more than 1,500km from the northern most school in Bagac, Bataan (Jaime Hilario Integrated School-La Salle) in Luzon, to the southern most in Surigao Del Sur, Mindanao (De La Salle John Bosco College).
The project aims to raise PHP1.5M thru pledges and sponsorships as every 100 meters of this journey corresponds a PHP100 donation. 100% of the funds will be used for scholarships and various PCN environmental related campaigns like tree planting and carbon footprint reduction awareness.
Riding bicycles across the Philippine’s three major islands is a statement - to inspire change, unity, and awareness. Green is not just a color, it’s an active lifestyle.
