QUEZON CITY, Sept. 1 — The 118th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary (CSC) will kickoff with the R.A.C.E. to Serve Fun Run on September 2, 2018 at the Quirino Grandstand, Manila.
Now on its 8th year, the Civil Service Commission is spearheading the fun run along with partners from the government and the media. Around 15,000 runners are expected to join and compete for the 3K, 5K, and 10K categories.
The fun run aims to foster goodwill and camaraderie among government workers and to promote good health and wellness practices.
Proceeds from the fun run goes to the Pamanang Lingkod Bayani program of the CSC. The PLBi provides one-time financial assistance and scholarship opportunities for the loved one left behind by government workers who died in the line of duty. To date, 118 beneficiaries have been awarded under the PLBi program. PLBi recipients include uniformed and civilian personnel who perished in rescue efforts during super typhoon Yolanda in 2013.
