Some of you may recall I visited and wrote about the Boljoon Church in Southern Cebu a while back, here. The church is wonderful but in need of serious restoration; I understand the townsfolk of Boljoon have really taken on that herculean task. Several efforts to raise funds and interest in the restoration project have been undertaken, but as with all monumental tasks, even more resources are needed. I realize this is a bit of a geographically specific public announcement, but just this quick post to let runners in Cebu know that there will be a Boljoon “Run to Restore” 3k, 5k and 10k run held in Boljoon, Cebu on November 7, 2010. With assembly time pre-dawn at 5a.m. I understand half of the race is UPHILL and passing several heritage sights, so this isn’t for the faint of heart. But definitely a worthy endeavor and I wish them much success (getting Marketman to run a kilometer with bad carotids would probably be considered a minor miracle).
