RE: WORLD YOUTH DAY FUN RUN (May1, 2011)
Greetings of peace!
The Archdiocesan Commission on Youth (ACY) and the Archdiocese Manila Biblical Apostolate are staging a sports event dubbed as World Youth Day Fun Run. It will be on May 1, 2011 coinciding the beatification of Pope John Paul II, starting from Quirino Grandstand and will end at the CCP Complex Ground. This event is a fund-raising project to send twenty (20) youth delegates from all the Vicariates of the Archdiocese for the World Youth Day Celebration in Madrid, Spain come August of this year. A ten thousand- runner turn out will enable us to finance various youth programs this year as the whole Philippine Church celebrates the Year of the Youth. Registration fees are as follows: P400.00 for the 3K, P500.00 for the 5K and P600 for the 10K.
In lieu of this we are fervently soliciting for your support by becoming registration venues and by providing a space in your parish church for the promotional advertisement. An incentives of ten percent of the total amount coming from the registration fees goes to the funds of your parish youth ministry.
We will be most happy to entertain any queries regarding this event. You may get in touch with us through our office nos. 523 2814 or 404 3673.
Thank you very much for your unwavering support for our young. May God bless all our efforts in bringing them in to a deeper and socially-relevant faith.
In Christ’s with Mary,
REV. FR. RAMON JADE L. LICUANAN
