In JCI’s Facebook page, the benefit run aims to generate resources for the replanting of mangrove areas in Davao Oriental that were destroyed by typhoon Pablo in 2012 and to provide assistance in the rehabilitation of the coastal barangays that were affected by the Zamboanga incident in September last year.
Proceeds of the event will be used for the establishment of nurseries for mangrove seeding to be a source of livelihood among areas in Barangay Baculin in Baganga, Davao Oriental and Barangay Mampang, Zamboanga City.
The event is also part of MinDA's flagship program called MindaNOW! Nurturing Our Waters Program.
The top three finishers will receive medals from the event organizers.
