7-Eleven Run 2019 awards runners from Manila, Cebu, and Davao

The country’s go-to convenience chain, 7-Eleven, officially marked its seventh year of promoting health among its consumers through a fun-filled sports and wellness activity, the 7-Eleven Run.

7-Eleven Run 2019 brought together professional and recreational runners from different parts of the country into a nationwide gathering, where they showcased their love for the sport while spending time with friends and family. The event took place in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao last February 3, 2019.

This is the second year that the company held the 7-Eleven Run simultaneously throughout the country. In 2018, over 25,000 participants joined the event as they vied for a podium finish.

Races were held at Filinvest City, Alabang, Cebu Business Park, and SM Davao. The race in Manila and Cebu both had 10 different categories that catered to all types of runners: 500M, 3K, 5K, 5K Buddy, 10K, 10K Buddy, 16K, 21K, 32K, and 42K. On the other hand, the race in Davao, had only 9 categories, excluding 500M.

The overall top 3 Filipino winners from the 42K, 32K, and 21K categories will be participating at the Phuket International Marathon in Thailand from June 7 to 10, 2019.

“The 7-Eleven Run series is regarded as one of the most anticipated marathons in the country today,” Jose Victor Paterno, President and CEO of Philippine Seven Corporation said. “This year, we’ve made it more interesting by adding more categories to better fit the demand of every type of enthusiast—from the recreational runner to the professional athlete. We believe that by doing a sporting event like the 7-Eleven Run, we can contribute to the growth and development of Filipino sportsmen who are well on their way to bring pride to our country.”

No Learner Left Behind

As part of its advocacy of harnessing technology for education, PLDT wireless unit Smart Communication (Smart) officially launched today its pool of mobile applications that promote literacy in the mother tongue.

Dubbed as Digital Education For All: No Learner Left Behind, the event showcased five literacy apps developed by Smart in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), local stakeholders, collegesand universities. These are the Bahay Kubo Tagalog app, Kaalam Cebuano app, Taallam and Tahderiyyah Arabic apps, and Matigsalug app for the Matigsalug tribe of Davao and Bukidnon.

“Smart believes mobile technology is uniquely positioned to help facilitate learning opportunities, which is why we have tailored initiatives to help address the needs of our partner learning communities,” said Ramon R. Isberto, PLDT-Smart Public Affairs Group Head.
Alphabet and number games, folk stories The Kaalam (Cebuano term for ‘knowledge’) app features folklore stories such as Ang Diwata sa Konta
and Ang Kwentas ni Ingkco Candido that were all retold by residents of Argao town in Cebu province. The application was developed in partnership with DepEd Cebu City and Cebu Province, local government of Argao, Cebu Technological University – Argao Campus, and University of Cebu-Banilad.

The Ta’allam (Arabic term for ‘to learn’) was developed specifically for Filipino Muslims by content an multimedia partners such as DepEd General Santos and Sarangani, local government unit of Sarangani, Mercy Foundation, Young Moro Professionals, and ACLC College Gensan. Aside from reading and counting exercises, the app features Islamic prayers such as Dua, Surah, Salah, Wudhu.

The first literacy app for the Bangsamoro children, the Tahderiyyah (Arabic term for ‘Kindergarten’) app focuses more on stories with Islamic values and expressions on top of Arabic alphabet and number games. Its developing team consists of reps from the Bangsamoro Development Agency, FEU Institute of Technology, and Teach Peace Build Peace Movement.

Inspired by the iconic house that has become a symbol of Filipino culture and tradition, the Bahay Kubo interactive mobile application teaches Tagalog alphabet and numbers and will soon feature fun games and stories. The product is a collective effort between Smart and Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Council, an attached agency of the Department of Education.

Representing indigenous peoples  lack of localized educational materials is more evident in indigenous peoples (IP) communities, where
available learning materials are not contextualized. This is the reason why Smart developed Matigsalug, the first tribal app of its kind that showcases songs, dances, and chants from the Matigsalug tribe of Davao and Bukidnon.

With the app, users can learn how to properly pronounce Matigsalug letters and numbers and write them through app-tracing games. It was created in partnership with Matigsalug tribe of Sitio Contract, Datu Salumay, Marilog District in Davao, Pamulaan Center of IP Education, ACLC College Davao and Gensan, and Skeptron Business Solutions.

Aside from these five, Smart intends to launch more literacy apps in 2019. Among those in the pipeline include Sanut Ilokano for Ilokano-speaking regions, Gnare Blaan and Tagakaulo for children of Sarangani, and the Singsing Kapampangan app.

Digital portable classrooms are the targeted primary beneficiaries of the literacy apps are students, teachers, and parents of learning
communities under Smart’s School-in-a-Bag, a portable digital classroom designed to facilitate learning in basic education. The applications are delivered through the said digital portable classrooms that contain a teacher’s laptop, student tablets, a projector, DVD player, and pocket Wifi.

The devices are preloaded with educational content, while schools with no sufficient electricity also receive solar panels. School-in-a-Bag beneficiaries also receive Dynamic Learning Program modules, teacher training courses, and regular monitoring and evaluation from Smart.
No learner left behind “Our mission is to develop mother tongue based apps as interactive tools that can help support learning
strategies, as well as help preserve and promote local culture and heritage for the present and future generation,” Isberto explained.

Smart emphasized how strong partnerships with community stakeholders are essential in developing ;earn Smart programs. “From partnerships with government and non-government offices, local government units, companies, academe, advocacy groups, and media, we all need to work together to
help build a nation where no learner is left behind,” said Darwin F. Flores, Smart Community Partnerships Head.

The mother tongue based apps are available for download on Google Pay. Interested parties who wish to learn more about Smart’s educational programs can visit the Smart Communities Facebook page or email [email protected]
