Maximo B. Dalog Sr. Foundation, together with the Kataguan Dialysis Patients Organization in partnership with Tawid Multisports Group (Organizers of Tawid Mountain Marathon, Mountain Province Ultra, and Mount Amuyao Climbathon), Bontoc Multi-sports and CMV Outdoor (8a Performance and Amihan) and the Philippine Red Cross Mountain Province Chapter proudly presents the “Kataguan Run, Bike, and Caravan for Life” scheduled on June 19,2021.
This activity aims to help the Kataguan Dialysis Patients Organization to generate funds for its members in their weekly dialysis treatment. As of today, KDPOI is composed of 133 dialysis patients from Mountain Province who are undergoing lifetime dialysis treatment in the different dialysis centers nationwide.
The birth of the Kataguan Caravan Drive for Life in 2015 in partnership with the Office of the Congressman paved way to the different “for a cause” activities of the KDPOI. It has become an annual activity that is regulary slated in April. Even after the passing away of the late Congressman Maximo B. Dalog in 2017, the Kataguan Caravan Drive for Life has been a continuing legacy that is being supported and initiated by his children through the Maximo B. Dalog Foundation Incorporated.
Today, the present situation is taking its toll to the members of the KDPOI not only because of the weekly treatment but also because of the pandemic.
Members and watchers of the KDPOI are hard up physically, financially and emotionally. Hence, the need to work around the pandemic and continue the annual fundraising activity to help our brothers and sisters to innovate and raise awareness on Chronic Kidney Disease and its prevention.
