PALO, Leyte- The Philippine National Office Regional Office No. 8 will host the first ever PRO8 Evening Fun Run this year.
Chief Superintendent Dionardo Carlos, police regional director, said that the event will take place on October 27 and will start at 8 pm.
The fun run will begin at the PRO8 Grandstand inside the regional headquarters to be participated by running enthusiasts from the police organization and other stakeholders in the region.
“This is in line with the celebration of the Worldwide Halloween Festivity celebrated every end of October in preparation for the commemoration of All Saints and All Souls Day on November 1 and 2,” Carlos said.
As the PNP envisions for the evolution of Police units and its police officers into a community and service-oriented organization, particularly in gearing up harmonious community interactions, the fun run was conceptualized with the intent of promoting camaraderie between the police and community while at the same time, enjoy the Halloween festivities.
The event is open for all interested runners from PNP and other stakeholders.
There are two categories, the 3-km and 5-km run with a registration fee of P350 and P450 respectively, inclusive of race bib, singlet and the winning prize respectively.
As part of the mission of PRO-8, the proceeds that will be raised on this event will be given to the less fortunate families in the community.
“It will surely be an exciting event. We will not just enjoy the run as we will be happy extending our hands to the lowly,” Chief Supt. Carlos said.
