The Fun Run aims to raise funds for the Pondong Pamanang Lingkod Bayani Program.  The program honors public servants who gave their lives while performing their duties, functions, and responsibilities.  It also provides one-time financial assistance and scholarship opportunities for the family members the public servants left behind.
