Capiz Residents Ready for Million Volunteer Run 2 PDF Print E-mail
Capiz Philippine Red Cross Chapter Administrator Nelia Cartujano said that all the local governments in Capiz including some national government agencies, schools, private groups and media had pledged to join the run set on February 10.

The simultaneous nationwide Million Volunteer Run 2 will kick off at 6 a.m. from the City public plaza to the People’s Park in Baybay, Roxas City.

As of February 6, they have already registered more than 2,000 volunteers who will run during the event, Cartujano said, adding that more are still pledging their participation in said activity.

She said that runners should be wearing red shirt on that day to show that those from Capiz are concerned and support volunteerism. The red color is meant to create a “sea of red.”

Cartujano pointed out that part of the proceeds will be used for the organization and training of 143 volunteers in every barangay in the entire province.

The 143 volunteer group is composed of 43 members with one leader and is primarily organized and trained as responders for humanitarian works such as in medical and disaster risk reduction and response, she said.

“The positive response of Capiz residents to this event inspires the PRC and the volunteers to continue their humanitarian work,” Cartujano said. (JCM/JBG-PIA6, Capiz)
