Masaya talaga siya lalo na ‘pag kasama mo yung mga kaibigan mo,” said Alexandra G. Gargar, participant from Saint Columban’s College.

“Ayos lang naman po, enjoy naman siya kasi may bayad na 150 pesos and ‘yun is magagamit daw para sa mga out-of-school youth at pakana ‘yun ng SK Federation ng Lingayenfor Linggo ng Kabataan tapos ginawa rin ‘to para ma-maintain ng mga estudyante ‘yung pagiging physically fit.” – Mordecai Paragas, SHS student and runner from Pangasinan National High School.
