DAGUPAN CITY – At least 7,000 Dagupeños, including school children and high school students from the different schools in the city, joined the historical platinum unity fun run dubbed as Batik Ulopan along the De Venecia Expressway Extension in the early morning of June 9.
From the foot of the Pantal Bridge at Barangay Pantal, the runners raced up to the CSI The City Mall helipad where everybody were given free Pocari Sweat to quenched their thirst.
Batik Ulopan is just one of the several activities prepared by the 70th Agew na Dagupan Committee chaired by Schools Division Superintendent Froserfina J. Bravo with Mayor Belen T. Fernandez as Executive Chairman.
Students from different universities and colleges including government employees, different government and non-government agencies joined the fun run.
