As a health practitioner, a nurse by profession, It’s been my advocacy to promote good health not only to my patients but also to my friends and family. The use of tobacco continues to be a major cause of health problems worldwide. There is currently an estimated 1.3 billion smokers in the world, with 4.9 million people dying because of tobacco use in a year. If this trend continues, the number of deaths will increase to 10 million by the year 2020, 70% of which will be coming from countries like the Philippines.
“Warning: Cigarette Smoking Is Dangerous To Your Health”
That is why this coming February 26,2012, I will be running!… Running to support the 2nd “Kick the Habit Campaign: Run & Love a Healthy Lifestyle” which advocates ANTI-SMOKING. It will be held at ULTRA, Pasig City. 5a.m.
Proceeds of this event will go to HOP-E Foundation, a foundation based in the Philippines whose mandate and goal is to overcome poverty thru 4 elements- Education, Empowerment, Employment and Events. HOP-E is now giving free education for the children and parents in the mountains of Rizal and is also helping to augment the livelihood of the people by giving them work through the HOP-E farm.
