Fun run highlights World Environment Day in Bicol

Legazpi City (16 June) -- A fun run event, which started and ended at the Peņaranda Park here on June 5, gathered hundreds of environmentalists and advocates alike to celebrate the World Environment Day and Philippine Environment Month celebrations in the Bicol region.

Regional Director Gilbert C. Gonzales of the Environmental Management Bureau Bicol underscored in his message "the solidarity manifested by stakeholders in joining our awareness campaign is a signal that environmental management programs are really in place and being carried out in different parts of the region, especially in Albay province.

He cited the various programs and advocacies spearheaded by the Provincial Government of Albay, through the leadership of Gov. Jose 'Joey" Salceda.

"As the theme states 'Your Planet Needs You-United to Combat Climate Change' let us then work together to conserve and manage our environment," he added.

Following the fun run was a short program attended by DENR Bicol Regional Executive Director Joselin Marcus Fragada, Mayor Noel E. Rosal, Fr. Roman Santos of Aquinas University Hospital and Executive Director Manuel Rangasa of the Centre for Initiatives and Research on Climate Adaptation.

Special prizes, certificates and freebies were awarded to the participants.

"The Bureau extends its gratitude to all the participants from various government agencies, NGOs, and other sectors alongside with cooperators from industries - the Energy Development Corporation; NPC-BacMan Geothermal Power Field; AP Renewables, Inc.; Filminera Resources, Inc.; Rapu-Rapu Mineral, Inc.; Goodfound Cement Corp.; SAFECO Environmental Services; and the provincial government of Albay," Gonzales concluded.
