House Deputy House Speaker for Mindanao Beng Climaco has expressed full support to the holding of the Bottle Fun Run, an advocacy intended to help a halfway house lying in center, as she appealed for mass participation in the event.

Cong. Climaco’s office is one of the sponsors of the event together with the Ateneo de Zamboanga University Medical School, Zamboanga Runners Club and Zamsur Funds for Little Kids.

The event is set for tomorrow, Saturday, January 22  at 6am at the Enriquez Sports Complex. The run will feature a 5-km race.

The Bottle Fun Run advocacy hopes to construct the lying in center at Lakewood, Zamboanga del Sur for the benefit of mothers and women.

“As deputy speaker for Mindanao, I am alarmed with the number of mortality rates amongst pregnant women in Zamboanga del Sur. This run hopes to aid them in building a lying-in center made of PET bottles, which is less expensive  and stronger than the concrete structure,” Climaco explained.

The I Can Make a Difference organization spearheads this event. It is a group that formulates eco-friendly programs tailor fit to problems of underdeveloped and rural areas.

The lady solon hopes that more people will have a healthy lifestyle while helping achieve goals of communities. — Marvin Segura
