ILOILO CITY, January 4 (PIA) -- The Department of Education 6 is encouraging students, parents and teachers from public and private schools to join the fun run that will be conducted simultaneously in eight locations nationwide, on January 22 to support the government’s Education for All (EFA) program.

Finishers in the two events will be entitled to a raffle ticket for a chance to win an electric bike (1st prize), 2 laptops for 2 winners (2nd prize) and 3 cell phones for three winners (3rd prize).

Deriada said awards will be given also to groups or schools with the biggest participation.
