This year, the annual walk challenges the running enthusiast to join the event in taking huge and faster steps in campaign WFP’s End Hunger project. Despite of the drizzles it doesn’t stopped advocates, runners and walkers from walking 1Km lane or 5Km race lane for runners; instead they enjoyed the cool climate during the event. To see how the event goes here is short video of me showing how the annual walk looks like here in the Philippines.

World Food Programme’s End Hunger: Walk the World – Isang Hakbang Pilipinas 2010 is a symbolical project of WFP to create awareness and stepping up towards ending child hunger around the world.
