History Asia and Veterans Bank Presents Bataan Freedom Run this coming April 10, 2016. Last week at Kamuning Pandesal in GMA Quezon City. Philstar editor Wilson Flores discussed with Veterans Bank VP Miguel Villareal together with Jaques Ruby of AE networks and Jan Alacar of Without Limits Inc.
The mechanics and essence of Bataan Freedom Run 2016 in our History. On how it was celebrated around the world by world war veterans. I even saw that theirs a School in the US named after Bataan Death March. And lots of stories from foreign soldiers family who helped their family victims.
Some were really thankful to those Filipinos who those rice and food to the war captives. As they marched on the fall of historical Bataan. Which is called as the deadly marches. A lot of people died on that war history.
Most of the routes were actually where Pinoy and US soldiers endured and march to death. More than 70 years ago, In honor to thousands of those World Ward 2 veterans. They organized this 68.9kms marathon for serious marathoners. And organized mini 10k, 5k even 1k and 500m for those who likes to pay respect to our war heroes.
Cash prizes and medals are waiting for finishers. Proceeds of the memorial run will help fund the various veterans project like historical marker signs and monuments. The said run since Since 2014 is expected to be bigger through the participation of international running enthusiast.
So feel the history in respect to our war heroes the freedom we enjoy today. Join the historic heroic run.
