Life Fun Run for the Kids of Tuklasan, San Juan

37 Orphans from Tuklasan, San Juan
80 Volunteers from U!

Kids Marathon is one the biggest single organized event of U! Happy Events to date. Most of its volunteers came from previous youth partners. The day started early at around 830am for the Life Fun Run in La Salle Green Hills Track Oval Grounds. 57 Volunteers partnered with 30 Kids (7 were with slight fever) to make most of it a Trio Run. Alas! the whole run lasted only 10 minutes with the first 10 finishers receiving prizes. The event moved on through a convoy back to the kids center in Tuklasan. Jollibee food was served, various shows followed after. It started with a Puppet show from Ruther, followed by regular supporter Magic Man JB. Jollibee surprised everybody with 2 song numbers including the popular “Papaya Dance.” The most memorable one was the Kids presentation. They had a dance number and acting. A heart warming sharing followed from the Kids and the Volunteers. We distributed books from Phoenix Publishing, Inc. and school supplies from Julie’s Bakeshop. Special thanks as well to Krispy Kreme for the best doughnuts ever. Volunteers thank U!
