Run to stop T.B.
September 04, 2013
Zamboanga City-The Department of Health is celebrating the National Lung Month with the theme: "Tuldukanang TB. Ikalat ang tamang impormasyon hindi ang diskriminasyon".
In line with this celebration, the staff from the Employees' Compensation Commission, Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office 9, other agencies, and students from different educational institutions in the City gathered at Paseo de Mar Ground on August 18, 2013 at 4:30 A.M., to take part in the 3.4 km FUN BIKE/RUN/WALK. This is to give awareness to the public on the correct information to prevent and stop tuberculosis instead of discriminating persons afflicted by this curable disease.
Hundreds of participants warmed-up with a Zumba Dance stretching exercise before the start of the 3.4 km bike/run/walk. There were participants who joined with their bikes while the others ran and the rest mostly walked from Paseo de Mar grounds to the finish line at the City Coliseum, Brgy. Tetuan, this City. After the long run, everyone enjoined the Hataw Dance/Aerobics and raffle draw.
