Marikina is almost always on red alert when rainy season starts in the country. The city is prone to excessive flooding due to its proximity to the Marikina river and the highlands of Rizal which needs forest rehabilitation. This situation prompted the Marikina local government to promote environmental awareness to its citizens. The Takbo Para Sa Marikina Watershed, now on its 3rd year, is part of their effort to address the problem. The project will help rehabilitate the Marikina watershed through tree planting. This will improve the condition of Marikina during rainy season and provide jobs to Marikina residents.
Marikina Watershed Green Foundation is the beneficiary of Del Run 3: Takbo Para Sa Marikina Watershed.
