A hundred students ran naked across the campus of the University of the Philippines as it celebrated its centennial on Wednesday.
Members of the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity held its "Oblation Run" to coincide with the 100th year anniversary of the nation's top university, which is based in Manila.
The annual event is said to have been inspired by the university's iconic symbol, the Oblation, a bronze sculpture of a nude man, with arms outstretched and face looking up to the sky.
The run, usually held as an initiation rite to the fraternity during December, involves male members running complete naked, apart from masks to hide their faces.
Wednesday's event was watched by hundreds of students and faculty, not only from the UP but from other universities as well.
Local media reported that as in previous years, the runners gave red roses to female students who watched the event.

That is a tradition of the university. Oblation in the university logo symbolize a resilience in life. So, the student council organized this kind of event and approved by the university administration.
This is what I see in the Spiritual realms, Why they parade and WALK ABOUT NAKED..???? Theirs a battle going on in the Spiritual realm between GOOD AND BAD and it manifested in our physical world .. This Men walking about NAKED may not know it but they are being used by the DEVIL to make a statement AGAINTS Almighty God... This is An act of MOCKERY and DEFIANCE to the Holy WORD of GOD ALMIGHTY...they are mocking this VERY VERSE in the scripture ****REVELATION ****16:15*******
BEHOLD , I am coming like a thief BLESSED is the one who stays awake and KEEPS his CLOTHES , so that he will not WALK ABOUT NAKED and men will not see his SHAME .".
This is a reminder to all that we are living in season of Jesus soon Return, STAY SPIRITUALLY AWAKE Keeping our dress of RIGHTEOUSNESS ON, SO that when HE COMES BACK you WON'T be found NAKED ... BLESSED ARE THOSE who HAVE SPIRITUAL EYES to SEE ...
Both of you are stupid homophobic, immature and small brain headed uncultured whine, full of idiocy, these words are not enough to describe you all. Grace, do you even know what this event really meant? this is not about showing their naked body nor exposing their privates..
jaspher lacson tingnan mo naman mukha mo sa FB. Parang bilao na kinapitan ng tagiyawat, anlakilaki na labi, halatang tsupaero. Kung makapanghusga ka sa oblation run, di mo nman alam ibig nila iparating. Gagong baklang bobo ka.
This video by the CBC (Canada’s equivalent of PBS) explains a lot about Free-Range Kids!
What is “Free-Range Kids”? You have been dubbed “America’s Worst Mom” by the media. How did you earn this title? Were you a Free Range kid? How can you tell if a kid IS “Free-Range”? What prompted you to found the Free Range Kids movement? What is a helicopter parent? Why were our parents different from today’s parents? Your new book has a section titled “The A-Z review of everything you might be worried about” in which you debunk many parental fears. Did you come across any particularly outrageous parental concerns? You’ve offered readers a number of “Free Range Commandments,” one of which is “Fail!” But we don’t want our kids to fail…do we?
You are raising your kids in New York City, is it harder to be a Free Range parent in the city? You have experienced the media from all angles, as a newspaper columnist, a news consumer and most recently as the sensational subject of a media storm. Has your view of the media changed as a result of this? What should we do to liberate our kids without going crazy with worry? What is “Free-Range Kids”? Free-Range Kids is a commonsense approach to parenting in these overprotective times. You have been dubbed “America’s Worst Mom” by the media. How did you earn this title? In 2008, I let my then-9-year-old ride the subway by himself. He’d been asking us — my husband and me — to please take him someplace and let him find his way home by himself. So my husband and I discussed this. Our boy knows how to read a map, he speaks the language and we’re New Yorkers. We’re on the subway all the time.That’s how it came to be that one sunny Sunday, after lunch at McDonald’s, I took him to Bloomingdales — and left him in the handbag department.I didn’t leave him unprepared, of course! I gave him a map, a MetroCard, quarters for the phone and $20 for emergencies. Bloomingdale’s sits on top of a subway station on our local line, and it’s always crowded with shoppers. I believed he’d be safe. I believed he could figure out his way. And if he needed to ask someone for directions — which it turns out he did — I even believed the person would not think, “Gee, I was about to go home with my nice, new Bloomingdale’s shirt. But now I think I’ll abduct this adorable child instead.”
