On 27 May 2018, runners will be able to raise awareness about Parkinson’s Disease which is a disorder in the neurodegenerative system leading to a continuous deterioration of our bodily movements because of a loss in the brain cells that produces dopamine. A dopamine is a chemical that is released by neurons or nerve cells that sends signals to other nerve cells.

Registration for this awareness run will be at the entrance gate of the Laperal Building in Session Road, Baguio City.

Three categories will be included and the fees will be as follows:

  • 5K – Php 300.00
  • 10K – Php 500.00
  • 21K – Php 700.00

This is a really affordable run that will benefit all of us since we will be helping ourselves and others in raising knowledge about Parkinson’s Disease.

Registration will be inclusive of a McDonald’s breakfast, race bib, shirt, and finisher’s medals for 10K and 21K participants. Top 3 runners will be given special medals for all categories.

Gun starts will be 4:30 AM for 21K, 4:45 AM for 10K, and 5:00 AM for 5K categories.

You may contact the race director at (047) 442-6040 for additional information regarding the said event.
