Earth Run Ibiza 2010

January 26th, 2010

After such a successful Earthrun event in April 2009, ‘Follow your heart productions’ and ‘Greenheart Ibiza’ will join again to make the 2010 event much bigger and much more spectacular, reaching even more of the local and international population with our ‘one world’ environmental message, bringing people together to build green communities and a sustainable future.

The whole event is intended to be great fun for everybody on the island and there will be live music and dancing exhibitions from a fabulous selection of local artists, there will be healthy organic food, massages, a raffle with numerous donated prizes, lots of great entertainment and special activities for children of all ages. “We look to the next generation as our hope for the future. It will be through education and involvement that our children will have the tools and understanding to help build a better world for us all,” says Chris Dews, coordinator for Greenheart in Ibiza.

In a practical way the run will also help by raising money for various green initiatives in the coming year, including environmental education, improving programmes for recycling, beach and forest cleaning, as wll as generally improving our personal impact on the environment.

There will be a special pre-event presentation in the Paseo de las fuentes in San Antonio all day on Thursday April 22nd, giving out information and signing up participants for the great Earthrun event on Sunday the 25th of April.

Participants are asked to get friends, family and neighbours to sponsor them so that every step of the run will help make a more healthy planet. You can get updated or register for participation in the Earth Run and download sponsorship forms from www.earthrun.es from Feb onwards.

This is a global event taking place across the globe in over 10 locations and set to increase..
