Wazzup Pilipinas!

Can you finish 5K in 25.5 minutes? Run with us on May 18 and see if you can!

The Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mangaawit (OPM) - the leading and most respected organization of Filipino professional singers in the country, in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), is holding a campaign run dubbed as Mission: EO 255 for the stricter implementation of Executive Order 255.

This will be held on 18 May 2014 at the G-Strip in Greenhills, San Juan. The race will kick off at 5AM.

The event aims to raise awareness of and encourage the radio stations’ full adherence to the above-mentioned Executive Order, issued by former Pres. Corazon Aquino in 1987, requiring all radio stations with musical format programs to broadcast a minimum of four (4) original Pilipino musical compositions in every clock hour.

“OPM aims to ensure the growth of the local music industry; thus, it is very important that all radio stations implement EO 255,” said OPM President Ogie Alcasid.  Furthermore, “Not only are we launching the campaign to remind radio stations – and a big thank you to those who do implement EO 255 – but also to let the public know that they can expect a minimum of four OPM songs to be played per hour on all radio channels so as to make the implementation of EO 255 participative.”

The campaign run is also a unity run for the Filipino artists’ rights and welfare. Mission: EO 255 is a 5K race, women’s and men’s division.  OPM members, cultural workers, patrons, and advocates and supporters of OPM are expected to attend and participate. The race kit includes a race bib and tokens/freebies from sponsors. Prizes will be awarded to the finishers. Registration is PHP 650 and is open to the public.

To register, please contact the OPM Secretariat at (02) 631-1022/633-0640 (Ms. Belle) or the Team Ventures Secretariat at (02) 522-5953/400-9745 (Ms. Tricia Rana). Race tickets will also be made available for sale at a designated site (details to follow soonest). We hope you could help us support the stricter implementation of EO 255!
