Don Bosco 60th Anniversary Fun Run

Here’s a unique race that will be held simultaneously in six areas throughout Luzon dubbed the “Don Bosco Run, Jump, Make Noise 6oth Anniversary Fun Run” on February 26, 2012 with a minimal registration fee of P350.00. The distances are 3k, 5k and a 10k. Interested? Read On:

The Don Bosco group of schools have been part of the landscape of Philippine education since the 1950’s.  Their very strong advocacy for the youth is what makes the school stand-out and stand still after 60 years.

In celebrating the Salesians presence in the Philippines and all the good they have seeded, there will be a simultaneous Fun Run in six (6) areas :

  1. Quirino Grandstand, Manila
  2. Nuvali, Laguna
  3. Clark, Pampanga
  4. San Jose, Nueva Ecija
  5. Naga City
  6. Legazpi City

Gunstart will also be simultaneous at 6:00AM on February 26, 2012. The Fun Run, dubbed from Don Bosco’s famous adage, “Run, Jump, Make Noise: Celebrating 60 Years of Don Bosco’s Presence in the Philippines” is a fundraising activity to create a trust fund for the eight (8) Don Bosco  Technical -Vocational  Education and Training (TVET)  centers.

The TVET centres are the main advocacy of the Don Bosco schools.  It trains and forms the marginalized youth into able, upstanding citizens and allows them to be in the workforce of the technically-skilled.  Their  employability rate is in the 90 percentile with car manufacturers,  technical offices, and more.  On top of free education for these out of school youths, Don Bosco also provides their basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, as well as hospital care when need be. Forming a boy into an upstanding adult is not easy, nor is it inexpensive.   But it is an advocacy worth pursuing for it is essentially an advocacy for life and in this case… of lives.

This our call: Join us in this Fun Run and help us complete their journey to be productive members of our society.

Registration Fee is only P350 and ALL proceeds go directly to the education of our youth.  Registration starts February 4, 2012.
