Mayor runs with GK for the homeless
ILOILO City Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog will lead the estimated 5,000 participants to the Gawad Kalinga (GK) fun run starting 7 am at the SM City Car Park on Sunday.
In her letter to the mayor, GK Iloilo Mangroup head for events and communications Joana CQ Rabulan, said they aim to make a record in fun run history with thousands of participants including the academe and GK partners, volunteers, beneficiaries and other sectors of society.
Themed “Run and Make a Difference,” the activity intends to promote awareness of the GK movement in Iloilo as well as to continue generating funds to help build more communities for the poor in the city and province of Iloilo.
GK, a non-government organization committed to help alleviate poverty by building communities and homes, and restore human dignity, is one with the city government in improving the lives of Ilonggos.
Included in Iloilo’s 10 GK sites are the newly established GK PECO Village and Assumption Village in Brgy. San Isidro, Jaro of this city. (Lucy Montealto-Sinay)
