The ICI Faculty and Staff joins Dagan Iligan 2011 last September 4 at the City Public Plaza. This event is made possible by the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP). The goals of the said activity are to raise funds for charitable institutions and promote the city fiesta. Iliganons crowd the plaza and group with their friends and colleagues as well as chat with them before the fun run starts. There are three categories in which a participant can register to, these ranges from Three Kilometer (3K), Five Kilometer (5K) to Ten Kilometer (10K) runs.
Led by the school’s Human Resource (HR) Officer and also the PMAP’s Secretary, Mrs. Lea Jan C. Aguilo, ICI participants step up and prepare themselves for the Three Kilometer (3K) run. At the sound of a “bang”, ICI faculty members and staff run with all their effort. Although, this activity is regarded as a competition, a lot of them don’t mind others who run faster and farther. What they are thinking is to simply stretch their muscles, warm themselves amidst the coldness of early morning and have fun.
After few minutes of breath-taking and exhausting running, participants gather around the plaza to have themselves some hot arozcaldo in which it’s perfect for the hungry stomach. A program is prepared for everyone’s entertainment and one of its highlights is the Hataw Dance. Accompanied by music, everyone including ICI’s participants dance to the three fastbeat songs in a row with great smiles and graceful steps in their performances.
Afterwards, a raffle draw is made as a continuation of the program. Random numbers are drawn and winners are given various prizes courtesy of PMAP. In addition to, every participant is given certificates of participation.
This proves how interactive the ICI family is when it comes to public events especially when it deals with acts of charity and goodwill.
