46 volunteers participated. 32 of which trekked from Baogo to Upper Langob, 11 rode the jeepney and 3 on the service vehicle provided for the event. The gift boxes were divided up amongst the 2 vehicles.
Assembly for the trekkers was at Gaisano Talamban at 9:00 AM. By 10:30, after a little GTKY (Getting To Know You) and prayer, 28 trekkers proceeded to Baogo via Motorcycle. The remaining 4 trekkers caught up with the rest at the mini-falls after lunch and at the store.
At 11:00 AM, the trek started after the warm-up and assignment of group leaders. There were 5 mini-groups led by Kring, Elijah, Edulleen, Dianne & Joshua.
At 1:00 PM, while the trekkers were having lunch at the mini-falls, the jeepney with the riders left the assembly area at JY Market.
At 1:30 PM, the trekkers arrived at the Basketball Court. 30 minutes later, the riders arrived. The program proper started after the registration of kids.
At 2 PM, the jeepney arrived with the gifts and the riders. Registration of the kids followed. The program proper started with a prayer led by Ray Llesol followed by a quick GTKY exercise for the trekkers & kids led by Analyn Sarte.
To foster camaraderie & friendship between the kids & trekkers, the group was divided into 4 teams. They were tasked to name their team and present a group cheer. After almost 30 minutes of practice, the 4 teams were ready.
They presented in the following order: Mocking Jay, Face Stylers, Team Onyok and Team Pura. The judges were Diane’s group. Team Pura emerged as the best among the 4 competing teams. After the competition, distribution of gifts followed.
The kids were given a bag with school supplies and a loot bag with goodies. 62 bags with school supplies were given. 40 adults received a gift basket.
The program ended with the closing remarks by Mr. Herbert Villarante, after the awarding of the cheering competition winner and the 2 most active kids.
THE TREK RESUMED
The outreach ended at 5:00 PM just in time for the Fiesta Novena. 6 of the participants went home aboard the company ride with the remaining gifts. The others went on to visit Sirao Peak while the others stayed at the foot to camp for the night. The remaining items were scheduled to be distributed to the children of the utilities staff and security guards of NCR.
