Naval Station Commanding Officer Joins Milo Marathon


THE personnel of the Naval Station in Davao City are not only active in events for environmental protection, but are also upbeat in joining sports events that are highly significant for physical conditioning.

This was proven by LCDR MANUEL L GIMENA PN, Commanding Officer, Naval Station Davao as he joined in the 10k fun run of the 33rd Regional Elimination for Davao Region and emerged in the top 15 last July 12, 2009.

Aside from the Naval Station Davao, the activity was also participated in by private companies, schools, government agencies, the EASTMINCOM, 10th Infantry Division Philippine Army and the Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao Command.

The regional race was part of the National Milo Marathon, the country's longest and biggest footrace. The fun run started at 5 a.m. at Rizal Park and has categories such as the 3k kiddies run, the 5k fun run, 10k run, and the 21k regional race.

Finishers in each of the categories were given cash prizes, while the top three male and female finishers in the 21k race got an all-expense trip to Manila to compete for the national finals. (NFEM-PAO)
