The LGU through the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) and the City Treasurer's Office (CTO); and the Bugto Association spearheaded the Alay Lakad 2010. The annual walk-for-a-cause was held at 4:00 am today (October 3, 2010). Participants walked from three "take-off" points namely Calbayog, Oquendo and Tinambacan. They converged at the Calbayog City Airport where a mass was held and it was followed by a short program.
This year, the participants contributed 50 to 100 pesos for the fund which is intended for the training programs for the out-of-school youth of Calbayog.
Thie walk was participated in by the City Officials, LGU employees, NGOs, private establishments and public and private schools.
Here are some pictures I got from the CTIO.
