Red Cross Philippines-Bulacan Chapter and Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office will also collaborate in the marathon to ensure the safety of the runners.
Meanwhile, Fernando said that fun run will not only benefit one’s health but also the environment.
“Napaka-gandang ideya ng fun run na ito dahil hindi lamang ang kalusugan natin ang mabebenepisyuhan kundi mapapangalagaan din natin ang ating kapaligiran lalo na ang mga coastal area sa pamamagitan ng pagpapakalat ng mga kaalaman tungkol dito,” the governor said.
