The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) supported the Philippine Navy (PN) on its 119th Anniversary and was the major sponsor of the fun run dubbed “Run for the Navy 2.”
PCSO, together with PN and Support Your Navy Foundation (SYNF), succeeded in its goal in conducting the fun run at the PN Headquarters along Roxas Boulevard in Manila.
As part of its anniversary celebration, the “Run For The Navy, 2” is just one of the activities conducted by PN in various venues with an objective of reaching out to the public and the community it dutifully serves.
PCSO joined and supported the fun run which is also a fund raising event wherein the proceeds will be donated to the SYNF to uplift the material, physical, social, economic, morale and welfare of the Philippine Navy.
PCSO General Manager Alexander F. Balutan, and PCSO employees, together with hundreds of runners from all ages, including Sailors and Marines with their families, joined the 5 kilometer fun run. The fund raising activity was further graced by the presence of actor and Marine Reservist Master Sergeant Jose Sixto Raphael “Dingdong” Dantes 3rd.
The PN and SYNF expressed their gratitude to PCSO for its goodwill and continued support to the humanitarian and charitable endeavors of the Philippine Navy.
