BLR personnel with Director Benjo Santos M. Benavidez participated in the 2016 Freedom Run held at the Liwasang Ullalim, CCP Complex in Pasay City on 10 April 2016. The Friedrich Naumann Foundation (FNF) and Pasay Youth Development Council organized the activity as a unique and accessible platform to gather like-minded people who are determined to improve governance in the Philippines.

Thousands of runners from government agencies, civil society groups and private citizens joined the activity.

The “I am free from Corruption: Diretso Lang!” was part of the FNF’s voters’ education campaign. The Freedom Run also showcased the Filipino culture of solidarity, especially in the fight against corruption.

FNF is a German political organization which was launched in the Philippines in 1986. For 30 years, it promoted Philippine-Germany relations, particularly in the areas of good governance, political reforms, human rights, rule of law, economic development and political dialogue.
