Having been able to gather almost 400 Pinoys in the past year, Takbong May Yabang successfully reached its goal of promoting national pride not only to its participants but to the Filipino public in general. It was a big hit among its attendees, who, regardless of age, took the challenge not only of crossing the finish line but also of shouting out how proud they are of being Filipinos.
This year, the University of the Philippines Association of Business Administration Majors (UP ABAM) Yabang Pinoy Team and PLDT Touch Card brings the event back with a twist, taking it to a whole new level from Takbong May Yabang to Takbong Mas May Yabang. We Pinoys welcomed the year with the crucial trials that it brought from the automation of the elections to the selection of a new set of government officials and so on. These events have undeniably shown how much we as a people, especially the youth, are determined to fight for the CHANGE that the country needs. This then puts our nation to a critical stage of maturity. Taking these into consideration, the UP ABAM Yabang Pinoy Team revamps Takbong May Yabang with much more energy and relevance allowing each Pinoy runner to both take their national pride to the next level and cross the finish line running for what they believe in – yan ang tunay na Pinoy! Each participant will be empowered to finish the race with his/her own cause—reconfirming one’s commitment to our mother land.
Takbong Mas May Yabang is a gathering of shouting proud Pinoys. With an estimated attendance of at least 400, the event will commence at five o’ clock in the morning on July 25, 2010 at the Academic Oval situated at the University of the Philippines campus grounds – a jogging hotspot and a perfect haven to celebrate Pinoy Pride and Culture. It is the main objective of the event that participating Pinoys take greater pride and dignity in their nationality and more importantly be able to voice out and fight for their own causes. Supported by a state-of-the-art timing device from Runrio, Takbong Mas May Yabang aims to once again ignite the belief of the Filipinos—either by blood or by heart—in being a Filipino and in fellow Filipinos, and to reaffirm one’s commitment to our beloved Philippines.
