(Italiano) Rainbow over Cebu and Davao, Philippines - Run4unity 2012 Some eight hundred young people hailing from various schools, churches, parishes and organizations of different cities, provinces and islands, actively took part in the magnificent Run4unity event organized and animated by the young ones and the youth of the Focolare Movement in Central and South Philippines. The entire day of 12 May 2012 was dedicated in Cebu City while May 10 was slatedfor Davao City. These were indeed splendid days filled with much enthusiasm, joy and vigor! It was such a visible fruit of the unity built together by the Teens for Unity, Youth for a United World and the adults in the movement. The project “Coloring our Cities with Love” was openly launched as a challenge to be lived together and was presented through creative dances and choreography, songs, personal and collective experiences of the gen, workshops and games. As Chiara Lubich have said that we need to do our calculations in coloring our city, plans of concrete actions were drawn up in the workshop with the help of the mathematical signs in response to the challenges thrown by the gen: the six (6) yeses. Everyone is already looking forward to concretize their plans together with us.

(Italiano) We Gen 3 boys and girls of Davao City (southern Philippines), anticipated the Run4Unity last May 10, 2012, at Davao Central National High School. Of the 300 participants from different organizations, parishes and schools, majority came from Davao City with delegations from nearby cities and provinces. We prepared an afternoon program linking the Run4Unity activity to the Let's Color our City project. The program started with the “Ciao” dance warmly welcoming all the youth in the gym. A Gen 3 boy and a Gen 3 girl shared their experiences of loving their classmates, going beyond the difficulties and creating a new and wholesome relationship with them. Furthermore, the songs played, sang and danced by the Gen 3, communicated to everyone the joy of living in unity and the revolution of love that is slowly building a united world. For this activity, we also had the joy of working with the Gen 3 and Teens for Unity of Tagum City, Nabunturan and Mati City. They joined in the animation of the event giving also their concrete contribution in the dances, games and a mime. There was a fruitful discussion as a focolarino shared with all the young people present how to concretely “color” our cities. Taking cues from the mathematical signs, proposals of concrete action helped the participants in also committing themselves in saying “Yes” to Responsibility, Solidarity, Creation, Peace, Life and Family and a Culture of Giving, in their homes, schools and communities. During the games, the participants were able to “connect” with one another. Everybody enjoyed playing with the other youth and realized the importance of unity in achieving a goal. Despite some challenging moments in the program, we were able to overcome them by loving till the end, "being another Jesus for others.” In the end, there was a great joy in our hearts. This was surely a fruit of the love generously given by each one. So, we are infinitely grateful to Jesus in our midst for making everything possible and for giving us a chance to share His life and His love to many young people.
