MANILA, Philippines — FundLife, a leading non-government organization established and located in Tacloban and dedicated to promoting purposeful play and equitable education for marginalized and vulnerable children, proudly announces the launch of “Move Luzon.”

In partnership with the Bike Scouts project, Move Luzon is an ambitious, community-led running and physical movement initiative aimed at advocating for every child’s right to education and safe spaces.

The launch of Move Luzon will see FundLife founder, Marko Kasic, attempt to run from the top of Luzon to Metro in Manila, covering 600 kilometers in two weeks, the equivalent of 14 marathons in 14 consecutive days. Throughout the journey, he will engage with running and non-running communities and informal local groups to promote safe-spaces, education and localized development solutions.

Move Luzon is more than just a
physical challenge; it is also a movement to showcase the beauty and potential of communities in Luzon; along the way discovering the diverse landscapes, vibrant culture, and amazing potential that exists in every single community and child.

As the project traverses the length of Luzon, it will not only highlight the country’s scenic wonders but also champion a cause close to the hearts of many: a future where every child has access to safe spaces and equitable opportunity to reach their full potential.

The Move Luzon “Run with Purpose” will begin on July 8 in Patapat Viaduct, Pagudpud and culminate in Metro Manila on July 21, covering a total moving distance of more than 600 km.
