Pasil youth org raises fund for 3 cancer and 3 dialysis patients

Pasil, Kalinga – The Youth Volunteers Organization in the Municipality of Pasil led by Municipal Coordinator Chan Keight Patongao raised funds from the “Fun Run for a Cause” held on December 19, 2021, to help six chosen beneficiaries suffering from severe illness.

The activity was initially scheduled on December 18 but was moved the next day due to the inclement weather. The fun run followed the route from Cagaluan - Acacia Gym - Putao Waiting Shed - Pingaw - Bangyan - DENR - Lutot - Bockiao - Cagaluan Acacia Gym.

Municipal Secretary Aiza Patongao, in an interview, disclosed that 53 individuals attended the event which required a P150 registration fee. Other interested people who were not able to make it to the activity still made the payment as their way of extending assistance to the beneficiaries.

According to Patongao, as of today, December 27, 2021, the group holds a total of P23,820, which will be equally divided among the six recipients.

The beneficiaries of the fun run

The three dialysis patients to benefit from the proceeds are Maribeth M. Bakidan of Ableg, Bambie Dona-al of Cagaluan, and Norberto Maraño of Balinciagao Norte. Additionally, the three cancer patients are Wyndale Gaddawan of Balinciagao Norte, Mike B. Miguel of Pugong, and Rowena D. Walis of Dangtalan.

“Bale P3,970 per beneficiary. Ibibigay po namin later sa mga nandito sa Pasil na malapit,” the municipal secretary of the organization said.

The group handed over the amount to Bakidan from Barangay Ableg this December 27 while the assistance for Gaddawan was received by his immediate family.

"Diay dadduma ket to follow ta adda Tabuk diay duwa, Bulo diay maysa, ken Dangtalan diay maysa," added Patongao.

The organization, through its Facebook post, expressed gratitude to the individuals who supported and contributed to the success of the event, including Mayor Alfredo “Chao-ig” Malannag Jr. for sponsoring their snacks and tarpaulins, Bureau of Fire Protection-Pasil for their assistance, and barangay local government unit of Cagaluan for allowing their venue, among others.
