Wednesday, January 9, 2013
THE second year of the “Blue Run,” which aims to raise funds for various activities of the Don Bosco Alumni Association (DBAA) in Pampanga, is all set on January 26, 2013 at the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) parade grounds, according to an event organizer.
The “Blue Run Year 2: I struggle, I win,” which is a family-oriented fund raising activity, was organized by Don Bosco Pampanga Batch 1988 in cooperation with the DBAA–Pampanga Chapter, according to Event chairman and technical director Melvin Fausto.
Fausto said the activity coincides with the alumni homecoming and is also in preparation for the Don Bosco Pampanga Foundation Day celebrations from January 30 to February 1, 2013.
Fausto said the last year’s “Blue Run’s” proceeds benefitted indigent families living in nearby Mabalacat City.
“This event is an opportune time for all Don Bosco Pampanga students and alumni to get together for a cause-oriented, yet fun-filled activity,” Fausto said.
He said registration starts at 6 a.m. while the start gun will fire-off at 7 a.m. for the 2.5-kilometers (2.5K), 5K, and 10K categories.
Fausto said the registration for the Grand Alumni Homecoming will start at 4 p.m. followed by celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 5 p.m. and homecoming dinner by 6 p.m. (PR)
