A fun run to different mountains of Laguna that started from Makiling Botanical Garden inside the University of the Philippines in Los Banos down to different municipalities and city such as Los Banos, Bay, Calauan, San Pablo and Alaminos.

Students waited for the group together with Mayor Joe Padrid of Bay, Mayor Felisa Berris of Calauan, Councilor Evangeline Mendoza of Barangay Imok and San Pablo City administrator Loreto Amante. Father Reyes discussed the advantages of clean living, awareness about what’s happening with the environment such as Climate Change and on how one could help in his own little way. He discussed also the benefits of education to young students from Baranggay Maitim, Liceo De Bay and Liceo De Calauan.
