We would like to invite you to the 4th GK1MB Bayani Challenge 2009: Only for the Brave, a 5-day test to prove our courage, endurance and love for country. This year’s GK1MB Bayani Challenge will be held in Zamboanga City and Sulu.

The GK1MB Bayani Challenge is not about adventure. It is challenging ourselves to go beyond our comfort zones so we can make a difference in the lives of others. This year, we hope to bring people of different faiths and backgrounds together from all over the world to make a statement that we are all brothers and sisters. Let us not be defined by our fears and apprehensions but rather let us focus on what we hope to achieve – a better Philippines, a future full of hope.

This year’s theme Only for the Brave is a question for everyone: “Are you brave enough to love?” and your presence will surely build the friendship that will pave the way for peace. Join us in this journey of building a nation and be part of history.

    More on GK News! GK had a Global Summit held at Boston last June 12-14 this year and it’s a big success. Also, I’ve read that there are other nationalities from India and Columbia that are opt to get trainings to bring GK communities into their country. GK is a very inspiring movement isn’t it? 🙂
