55 Kaubans of Aboitiz Construction, Inc. joined the 2017 DYAB Kapamilya Run held on June 11. Categories included 3K, 6K, 12K and 21K. Most of the Kaubans joined the 6K run. Only 2 Kaubans, namely Atty. William Podot of Finance and Ramero Mabayag Jr. of Fabrication, finished the 21K category.
The event opened an opportunity for Aboitiz Construction to be better known to the public as Kaubans proudly wore their company shirt. It was also a way to contribute to charitable projects as the Kapamilya Run was a fund-raising initiative of ABS-CBN. Equally important was the opportunity for Kaubans to participate as one in a wellness activity.
Kauban Ace Gimena of Human Resources had this to say: “I am glad to be part of this year’s run. Not only was it a bonding moment for the Kaubans but it also felt good to be recognized as a company joining great causes like this.”
Ramero Mabayag Jr. who finished the 21K said it was his first time to join. To him, “joining was not for winning but rather gaining of a new experience”. He was also happy that Aboitiz Construction was promoted through the Kapamilya Run.
The Kapamilya Run is one of the longest footraces in Cebu. Runners come from private and public sectors and the community at large.
