Hurray for Your Prompt Response to Padyak Para sa Bicol!

Your donations have traveled a long way and were passed from one hand to another, but they finally reached Bicol!

All smiles! Bicolano athletes and volunteers unload the donations in the presence of Prof. Lily Malasa of Bicol University

Special thanks go to Ms. Ani de Leon and her family for coordinating the event between the Bicolano athletes and Gota de Leche, The Next Step Tri group, and countless other generous souls who never wavered in their support for this meaningful endeavor.

Beaming with accomplishment: Ms Lauren Justine Plaza, Next Step Tri, and Bicolano athletes managed to raise a total of PhP137,642 and bring various other donations to Bicol!

Even with the challenges of unpredictable weather and transportation, the donations went hand-to-hand on a purely voluntary basis. It took some time, but Prof. Lily Malasa of Bicol University and her volunteers were happy to receive them on behalf of those who need help.

Thanks to your kind hearts and hands for volunteering, donating, packing, cheering, padyak-ing, organizing, driving, etc., the Padyak Para sa Bicol fundraising event raised nearly 138,000 pesos to help our kababayans in Bicol who were affected by Typhoon Rolly!

Dios Mabalos!
