500K Runners vs Cybercrime Press Conference

Help Stop Cyber Crime

Cyber crime encompasses any criminal act dealing with computers and networks (called hacking). Additionally, cyber crime also includes traditional crimes conducted through the Internet. For example; hate crimes, telemarketing and Internet fraud, identity theft, and credit card account thefts are considered to be cyber crimes when the illegal activities are committed through the use of a computer and the Internet.

Cyber crime has been rampant and one of the fastest growing crime in the country and in the world simultaneous to the modernization and continued discoveries of the latest gadgets and communication in the internet.

1st Anti Cyber Crime Fun Run Committee

Last October 12, 2011 we at Team KTT (and Team CB) along with the other running groups, bloggers and the media were privileged to be invited to the Press Launch of 500K Runners vs Cyber Crime: 1st National Anti-Cyber Crime Fun Run at Dolce, Tomas Morato. This event is set to gunstart at the Quirino Grandstand at 4 in the afternoon.

At the press conference they launched the Singlet design and the race packet contents which includes a phone holder, belt bag and a shoe bag with the race bib and timing device. An open forum also took place where friends from the media and the invited runners asked questions about the race details and their cause.

This event aims to advocate awareness against cybercrimes. They wish to reach 500K runners to participate in this event we all love– FUN RUNNING. That is why they organized and invite all of us to participate to make this monumental event a success.
