Alay Lakad sets walk for youth
The Alay Lakad Para sa Kabataan will celebrate its 41st anniversary with a walkathon for out-of-school youth on Sept. 1 at the Quirino Grandstand, Rizal Park, Manila.
This year’s theme is “Lakad Bayan Para sa Kapayapaan.” According to Alay Lakad president Frank Evaristo, the walk aims to spread awareness to the entire nation on the plight of out-of-school youth and at the same time help this disadvantaged sector of society obtain a better life.
Alay Lakad sa Kabataan was created by Presidential Proclamation No. 168 and is the signature fund-raising project of Alay Lakad Foundation Inc. This year’s lead organization is Rotary International District 3810 with Rotary District Gov. Karen Tamayo as over all chair of the National Coordinating Committee for Walk 2013. Lions International is vice chair, together with JCI Philippines and Kiwanis International.
To date, Alay Lakad has assisted more than 60,000 out-of-school youth with scholarship grants, educational assistance and livelihood opportunities.
Donations will be accepted on or before the walk at the Quirino Grandstand.
