PIA Press Release

Aklan ready for Alay Lakad with "Hataw"

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (29 October) -- It's all systems go for another novel way of observing Alay Lakad in Aklan - a dawn walk capped by a "Hataw" of participating groups at the Kalibo Pastrana Park here November 6.

Last year, instead of a dawn walk for the cause of Out-Of-School youth, the province instead held "Alay Linis" to clear Kalibo of garbage and other debris left by the heavy and deep flood brought by Typhoon Frank that hit Aklan June 21 last year.

The province of Aklan jointly holds Alay Lakad every year with the municipality of Kalibo with Aklan Governor Carlito S. Marquez as Provincial Honorary Chairman and Kalibo Mayor Raymar A. Rebaldo as Municipal Honorary Chairman.

This year's Alay Lakad Over-All Chairman is Nestor Bartolome, President, Rotary Club of Metro Kalibo.

As Over-All Chairman for this year, the Rotary Club of Kalibo, in agreement with the Alay Lakad Provincial Executive Committee, will be giving away prizes for winners in the following categories: 1) Biggest Participating Group Student Category; 2) Biggest Participating Group - Professional Category; 3) Best in Hataw Attire (Group 1, 2 and 3) and 4) Biggest Donation AL 2009 (donations given immediately after the Walk).

Members of the Alay Lakad Executive Committee suggested the incorporation of "Hataw", an aerobics exercise, to promote a healthy lifestyle among participating groups.

The Department of Education (DepEd) will be taking charge of the "Hataw" by providing music and dance leaders on stage at the Pastrana Park.

This year's Alay Lakad theme is "Lakad Kabataan, Ituloy ang Kaunlaran".

According to the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) here, Alay Lakad Secretariat, part of the funds of the past 2 Alay Lakad activities aided eight college students to graduate from their chosen courses and sent 65 Aklanon youths to the 5-day Regional Youth Encampment in San Jose, Antique.

Being a fund-raising activity to help Aklan's youth, donations will be collected from the participants - for heads of office - P200; Asst. Head of Office/Division Chief - P100; Rank and File, P25 and Civic Organizations, P1,500. (PIA) [top]
