    Victorious, energetic and full of happiness.

     

    That was how the PINK RUN turned out last October 20, 2013 at the Rotary Grounds in Tagum City, as organized by the Local Government of Tagum headed by City Mayor Allan L. Rellon together with the Living Hope Cancer Survivors Club.

     

    The Pink Davao Fun Run is dubbed as Reaching Lives with Hope and was held for the benefit of breast cancer survivors and to raise funds for their advocacy efforts on the dreaded disease.

     

    The participants enjoyed the experience running in the major thoroughfares in the city in 10K, 5K and 3K categories since they said this is one way to support and help the advocacy.

     

    It was last October 5, 2013 when Pink Davao activities kicked off Gaisano Mall of Tagum which was personally attended by Mayor Rellon who threw his full support to the activities of their organization.

     

    During the event, a breast clinic was also conducted with the Tagum City Health Office and the Rotary Club of Tagum Golden LACES where a consultation, breast examination and papsmear were given for free.

     

    The president of Living Hope Cancer Survivor’s Club, Melina C. Avila, shared said she was very delighted upon seeing the grounds with energetic participants and thankful for the support of the LGU for the successful event. Gleiza Delgado of CIO Tagum
