This event is the brainchild of Team New Barili.
The school exists to provide solutions to the health problems of the people and community in Western Mindanao.
To ensure sustainability in quality health services provided by the barangay health station while at the same time promoting physical activity as a vital part for the fight and prevention of hypertension, the Team NB came up with the Heart Run- A Benefit Run.
It also became the perfect platform to launch in the municipality our Dunk-A-Bottle Campaign - a fun way to reuse, reduce and recycle!
And lastly, it was the perfect crowd to introduce the locally-sourced cassava products made by the women of the rural improvement club of barangay New Barili. Healthy snacks all around!
