ABOUT THE FUN RUN
Christ the King High School Batch 1993 or Urugpod Siyamtulo Inc. will once again spearhead a 3k and 5k fun run on October 19, 2013 (Saturday). The event started last year as a fund raising activity for the Save Calbayog Rivers Foundation.
Because of the sponsors' generosity and the enormous support of the community, Run for the Rivers raised Php 50,000.00 for the foundation’s river clean up drives, awareness campaigns and other programs.
This year’s fun run, “Dalagan Para Sa Kabataan,” is for the benefit of the SOS Children’s Village Calbayog. Elementary and high school students from both public and private schools are expected to join as the event coincides with the Children’s Month Celebration every October. In addition, Urugpod Siyamtulo, Inc is also encouraging the participation and support of the government, private companies, the academe, civic and non-government organization and other sectors of the community to be one with its purpose. And with the fun run’s increasing popularity, participants from neighboring municipalities are also expected to join.
For three hundred pesos (Php 300.00), a participant/runner can avail of a race pack which includes a race shirt, race bib, and giveaways. A runner can opt to run for 3k or 5k, but the registration fee will be the same. Participants have to register and sign the waiver. Participants below 18 years old should also have the signature of a parent or guardian. While children, including those below six years old, are encouraged to participate, parents are responsible for accompanying them during the fun run.
The routes for the 3k and 5k are to be finalized yet.
The fun run will start at the Calbayog City Hall Grounds at 4 pm and will end at the Christ the King College Assumption Province Gymnatorium with a short program and after party.
