Surigao City—Surigaonons run enthusiastically during the Red Tie Run 2012 held December 1, this city.

Runners were happy to participate actively in the Surigao Runner’s Club (SRC) awareness run for HIV/AIDS to prudently respond on the said international concern. It was a rainy day but they stood still to accomplish the rational run.

“I’m happy, this is my first time to participate a run for a cause, I was once a runner back then but it was more on sports contest, and now I will run for purpose,” said Sheila V. Paredes, a 5k run participant.

Archie Ballado of NEMCO, also a 5k run participant, while running said, “I like this activity, it made me feel complete from a cause for a social concern to a personal satisfaction. I’m running therefore I’m applying the purpose of my lower extremities.”

“With my beautiful wife in this run for a cause, I super love,” Kaelf Dave P. Noguerra said in a hyperbaton speech. The couple participated the 5k run.

Teresa T. Septimo wasn’t able to join the activity but she said in Facebook, “I know that it was for the HIV-AIDS campaign. I think there should be more worthwhile activities such as that to further educate the people, especially Suriganons, about this silent killer thing. It’s no longer a taboo because there are reported confirmed cases in Surigao. We don’t want to be a small town and yet known and involved with big not so good issues such as this.”

“How I wish I have more time to be more involved with worthwhile activities and time related issues in Surigao,” she added.

SRC President Atty. Ingemar P. Macarine said, “I’m very happy that we have started and finished the Red Tie Run 2012, awareness for HIV/AIDS, successfully.”

“I hope that the next time we run for a cause those Suriganons who have joined now will still be joining, and for those who have not yet participated will be actively participating,” he added.

Pres. Macarine expressed thanks to all who have helped them -- the Surigao Runner’s Club, in realizing the run for a cause. “I hope you will continue in supporting us for the next rational runs. Congratulations to all the winners and I hope that you will still win our next runs for a cause.”
