Volunteerism in building shelters for super typhoon Yolanda victims.
Don’t think that we just gather to run a long mileage or more than 42K. But we can gather also as one through a volunteerism, cause after a wrath of a super typhoon, their is Cebu Ultrarunners Club(CUC) who is ready to risk everything just to save others.
November 30, 2013 | 8PM – Orvin / Uphillrunnr Dfive texted me that they are heading now to Minglanilla to load the items from Minglanilla National Science High School(MNSHS). These items are donated from the PTA of MNSHS(plywoods, hammers, nails, axe, pliers, bara de kabra, tarpualines, lamparilya and medicines). At 11PM we are done, we park the truck at my place(home) cause we have enough space and it is safe also.
December 1, 2013 | 3AM – “CUC South Members Assembled at Minglanilla” We wait in front of St. Cecilias School. The first Carpenter Runners arrived are from Carcar City, Archie Alvarado and Gian Paulo G. Cavan. Sir Tony Galon and Dominic Panimdim arrived also. We are good to go now, and we are heading to fetch Mam Lulu Valiente and company.
4AM – After we fetch Mam Lulu(with lots of bundles of joy for US and for the Norte) , we go to Total Gas Station Mandaue (G6 Hideout), where Joseph Delima and company is waiting. And the last volunteer to get is Engr. Frederick Angalot.
Little by little presence of mr.Sun can be felt. There we can view the damage of ST Yolanda brought to Norte. From worst to most worst, habang pa Norte na kami or to the tip North of Cebu more trees fallen, houses with no roofs and headless coconut trees.
We arrived 8AM at the Tambongon Elementary School in San Remegio Cebu, we immediately pull-out our things to the truck and prepare for a breakfast.
We are very blessed cause we are very welcome in there place. They prepare us food for our breakfast.
After we eat we prepare na to digest those foods.
This is now the finish product! Chadan! Dominic Panimdim to the rescue.
