How far can you go to light up someone else’s life? For the expected 2015 runners of Energizer Night Race Manila, all it takes is a step further on the road.

On June 27, 2015, witness how the road of Filinvest City, Alabang beams up as 3,000 runners dash their way to help the children of Bantay Bata 163.
“It’s time to give that spark of hope to the children assisted by Bantay Bata,” said Claire Guevarra, senior brand manager of Energizer. “Ever since our first Energizer Night Race, it’s always about giving back, running for a cause and sharing the positive energy”, added Guevarra.
The Energizer Night Race 2015 is the first open run which challenges the participants to run as many three-kilometer loop as they can in 120 minutes. Every three-kilometer run will equate to P100, 000 and will be donated to Bantay Bata as part of its operation and medical treatment funds.

According to Vincent Lizo, Energizer Philippine’s business director, a one-of-a-kind running event such as the Energizer Night Race bears truth that no competition is needed if we want to help improve the lives of children.

“Many fun runs have their own target beneficiaries, and it is interesting to note that the Filipinos are one with their fellow men in their fight against diseases, poverty, and the onslaught of ill-fated calamities,” Lizo said. “But we designed the Energizer Night Race to solely focus on the essence of helping”, added Lizo.”

A runner’s every 3k loop will be monitored through radio frequency identification (RFID). Kilometer markers in the race route will also be available to serve as the runners’ references. Moreover, a manually operated Energizer battery meter will light up every time a runner finishes a three-kilometer run. This battery meter will compile all the three-kilometer runs every runner makes until it reaches a one million benchmark. This will be put on view through an LED display onstage, and in the start and finish arc.

MJ Tiquia, Energizer brand activations manager, said that the company wants to offer its loyal followers a different experience each year so they can enjoy with their family and friends.

“We would like this year’s run to be a venue of fun and excitement for everyone who will join, so we’re focusing on their enjoyment this time more than anything else,” Tiquia shared. “Beyond the beneficiaries, we will focus on our goal to provide that “fun” for the runners so we can radiate the positivenergy to everyone” said Tiquia.

“With the race kit priced at 700 pesos, which includes race singlet, race bib, Energizer headlight, Energizer cap, Schick razor and access to pre and post race activities, we are inviting everyone to come and join us in this event. This is a good venue to bond with families and friends through a healthy activity like running, at the same time helping a common cause which is to raise P 1,000,000.00 for the children of Bantay Bata 163” added Tiquia.
For those who missed the registrations, you can still show your support by being there at the event venue and witness the Energizer Night Run and the Racers as they run for the benefit of the Bantay Bata Children.
As Energizer never fails to power up our gadgets, toys small and big battery powered stuff at home they even have time to give back and care for others specially this time, for BANTAY BATA Children. Looking forward to more Energizer Night Race in the years to come.

THE BIGGER FIGHT: Violence Against Women

DDB Group Philippines, PCW shine the spotlight on the ‘bigger fight’ in society:

violence against women

MANILA (April 30, 2015) – As the world awaits the “Fight of the Century” between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr., advocates of anti-violence against women wish to bring to light the “bigger fight” that is happening almost every day in Filipino homes – that of domestic violence.

DDB Group Philippines has collaborated with the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) to shine the spotlight on violence against women to open everyone’s eyes on fights that have not been getting  the kind of attention that they should be getting.

The much-anticipated square-off between two of the greatest fighters of this generation is deemed as the best time to create awareness and gather support for the different kinds of violence being committed by males versus women. Not to mention that Pacquiao’s nemesis, Mayweather, has a record of committing this kind of offenses.

DDB Group Philippines and its subsidiary Tribal Worldwide, have come up with a campaign that will ride on the May 3 super fight to help the Philippine Commission on Women to create awareness on the often neglected plight of women under their abusive fathers, husbands, male relatives or boyfriends.

In a series of posters shared online and on-ground, in bus ads and newspapers, and strategically placed side-by-side with Pacquiao vs. Mayweather promotional materials, DDB Group Philippines brings this issue out of the shadows and gets people talking, so they can prevent domestic violence from happening.

DDB Group Philippines Chairman Gil G. Chua said, “As a group, we at DDB Philippines always try to do our share in making the world a better place and supporting the fight against domestic violence is just one of our ways to achieve this. We live by our founder Bill Bernbach’s words that ‘All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society. We can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level.”

For her part, PCW Executive Director Emmeline Verzosa said, “Violence against women cuts across all race, religion, age, social demographics and sexuality. It threatens the security of half of humanity and is rooted in men’s desire for ultimate power and control over women. We must put a stop to it.”

Statistics shown that one in five women ages 15-49 have or are continuing to suffer from domestic violence and intimate relationship violence since age 15.  In 2010, cases of VAW reported to the Philippine National Police (PNP) rose to 59 percent, with the majority of the victims knowing their attackers.
