BRP In Partnership with the U.S. Consulate organized a city-wide race and an ecological fair on May 18th.
More than 1,900 runners, from kids to adults and even elderly, attended to the event.
The first race of the day, the 10K, started at 8:00 a.m in Las Misiones Mall's Parking lot and after half an hour the first runner made it to the finish line. On this race more than 800 runners participated.
We also had a recreational race of 3K, starting in the same place but with a different course. More than 400 adults, kids and even dogs ran showing their love for nature.
In this event, that was all about the care of the environment, we had an ecological fair full with surprises by our special guests such as Juárez limpio, La Rodadora, Fundación Pedro Zaragoza, clínica medica internacional, AXXA seguros, Ecorecicle and Medicos de la frontera.
After the Green committee, conformed by the American Consulate, BRP, Juárez Limpio, Colegio de la Frontera Norte and the Fundación Comunitaria de la Frontera Norte, thoroughly reviewed all the ecological projects, the final three winners were announced during the Green Race Award Ceremony by Fernando Ayala, BRP's Human Resources Director, and the General Consul Ian Brownlee.
One of the winners was Gloria Dolores Payan whose project consists on implementing an irrigation system for the 340 trees they have in one of the parks of their neighborhood. Her project was sponsored for $6, 300 mexican pesos.
Another sponsored project is for Gustavo Ruiz from the group

And finally Carolina Rosas Heimpel whose project consists in reforest different parts of the city and give workshops of urban gardening for the community. This project was sponsored for $15,500 mexican pesos.
All this amazing projects focuses on having a Greener city and to increase the sustainability of our environment. We expect this projects to bear fruit in the following months. We wish them the best of luck during the process.
This event was full of activities, not only for grown ups, in fact we think that kids are a key factor to start making a change in the way we treat our planet and for that to happen we need to inculcate them a bond with nature.
To accomplish that, we took common games and gave them an
One example of that is our version of
Snakes & ladders
in which ladders represented positive actions like planting a tree and snakes represented negative actions like throwing garbage. Another
game we had was
In this game you had to turn cards with ecological advices, like change regular light bulbs for Energy efficient light bulbs, and make the most number of pairs. And finally the
also with images related to recycling, the environment and sustainability.
Around 400 kids came to play with us and participated in the other activities from our guests, one example is La Rodadora, who helped us with a game to teach kids the correct way to separate garbage in containers
