What: The Great Lean Run 2018

Where: AS Parking Lot, in front of Palma Hall, UP Diliman, Quezon City

When: November 24, 2018 4PM

On the fourth edition of The Great Lean Run, SAMASA Alumni set the event five months before the mid term elections. It was a time when the martial law years were being rewritten as the "golden age" in Philippine history. The youth were asked to respond to the call of the times, to set things straight, to make Filipinos aware that remembering the Marcos' atrocities was an expression of resistance to the return of oppression.

In Lean's words, "the struggle for freedom is the next best thing to actually being free," and none best to pass this on to the students from various universities in the capital than through the experiential TGLR where they ran side by side with their contemporaries and freedom fighters from years past.
