Kalibo to hold first "Larolympics"

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (19 June) -- The Municipality of Kalibo, in cooperation with the Anak TV Foundation will be holding the very first Larolympics on June 20-21 at the Magsaysay Park here.

According to Kalibo Mayor Raymar A. Rebaldo, the Larolympics will be featuring "our children who will participate in the Chikiting Division (Age 7-10) and Bagets Division (Age 11-14) in games like Patintero (in Aklan known as Ins, played by boys and girls); Piko (Step Not, played by girls); and Tumbang Prso (Tumba Patis, played by boys).

The Larolympics will be covered by national media and be given importance by celebrities that will be brought by Anak TV Foundation Officers.

"Kalibo is hosting the "Larolympics" as a pilot area, the municipality being a forerunner of child-friendly programs and projects," said Mayor Rabaldo.

Mayor Rebaldo added that Kalibo, in partnership with the Anak TV Foundation, fully supports Larolympics as based on recent data, the new generation is now hooked on television and computers and spend most of the time just sitting with no physical and interactive activities that will help them grow into healthy, nationalistic, and socially active citizens of the future.

In the same opportunity, Kalibo will also host for the second time the Anak TV seal screening in the municipality's thrust to help recognize and promote deserving television programs that are wholesome and family-oriented,. The Anak TV Screening will be held June 20 at the Municipal Social Hall at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Mag Cruz Hatol of Anak TV Foundation. (PIA) [top]
