I am pleased and honored to invite you to attend the “RUN FOR LIFE” of the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan on July 16, 2011, the twenty first yearly commemoration of the Central Luzon earthquake that devastated Dagupan immensely. By the grace of God and the resiliency of the Pangasinenses, we have risen even stronger from the rubbles of that natural calamity.
The ceremonies will start with a celebration of the Mass at 3:30 pm at the Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist in Dagupan City. The actual fun run will kick off at 5:00 pm and will go towards the De Venecia Highway. There will be different groups for various runners—one-kilometer; three-kilometer and five-kilometer groups. It will be a leisurely run and walk for the gift of life that God gives all of us, a tribute to the resiliency and heroism of Pangasinenses.
I hope you can join the Mass and at least be present at the kick off of the night run. It will be big boost for the participants to have you. Let us celebrate what is great and good with Pangasinan.
I am looking forward to your presence. Thank you even now.
