1st DWCU-PTA Fun Run
Met Overwhelming Success!
Urdaneta City. Last Friday, September 10, 2010 the Parents-Teachers’ Association led by Prosecutor Silvestre Redentor A. Ridao the President successfully organized the First DWCU-PTA Fun Run for a cause for the continuation of their project which is the H.E. Room for the Elementary Department. The activity was the parents’ and alumni’s part as the culmination of this year’s Intramurals and the Foundation Day of the SVD. The Fun Run was overwhelmingly participated by different “running organizations” of the City of Urdaneta, Binalonan and other neighboring towns aside from the DWCU Parents, Teachers, Students, Alumni Association, Barangay Officials of Bayaoas, City Government Officials, friends and benefactors of the DWCU.
The registration of participants started at 5:30 in the morning at the St. Augustine’s Building lobby while everybody were already ready at 6:00 a.m. to start the fun, after some synchronized stretching and warming up a short introduction was delivered followed by a prayer for God’s blessings and guidance. And there…the first shot was fired in the air where the guests started for the 5K category marshalled by the DELTACOM Urduja Base. After 20 minutes another shot was fired and the Parents-Teachers-Students category was roaring with thunderous fun and laughter…surprisingly others were really running for the 3K. Those who were not in the two categories were left behind for them to consume the 1.5K distance around the DWCU oval with the prep, kinder and elementary pupils with their advisers.
When all the events and categories were done the awarding program followed soon infront of the Elementary Building with Mrs. Marisa P. Tababa the PTA Auditor as the emcee. Mrs. Mylene R. Dela Paz the PTA PRO led the assembly to a Thanksgiving Prayer while Mrs. Elizabeth Domingo the Principal of the Elementary Department delivered the opening remarks. The awarding of the winners with medals and trophies followed (kindly see the list of winners below). Dr. Wilson Lagmay the main proponent on the mechanics and organization of the FUN RUN addressed the assembly with his inspirational talk followed by the message of gratitude of Fr. Noel Ferrer, SVD and Fr. Doms Ramos, SVD. Prosecutor Redentor A. Ridao assisted the treasurer Mrs. Alma Mendoza as they turn-over the proceeds of the Fun Run. Engr. Rammy Parayno the PTA Vice President did the Closing Remarks thanking everyone for their full support to the project of the PTA.
