McDonald’s Saipan has donated $3,000 to the Northern Marianas Athletics for the 13th consecutive time in support of the upcoming Public School System/McDonald’s All School Athletics Championship this weekend.

“It is a good example of what partnerships with the community could really achieve. We are happy for the event,” said McDonald’s Middle Road branch manager Joe Ayuyu Jr.

Ayuyu said McDonald’s is happy to support events that serve as a good opportunity for students.

“For the last 13 years, McDonald’s has been donating to the All Schools Track and Field and it is part of our strong commitment to kids and our community,” said Ayuyu.

“We have to thank the NMA for helping to organize this, as well as the volunteers, families, and the participants because everybody needs the support,” he added.

NMA president Ray Tebuteb said he is grateful and appreciative of McDonald’s continued support for the event. He said the money would fund the refreshments of volunteers of the track and field event.

“For us, this is very powerful because for these kinds of events, most of our people are volunteers, so the most we can do for our people is buy them drinks,” he said. “We would just really want to extend our profound appreciation and gratitude to McDonald’s for helping us.”

The Public School System/McDonald’s All School Athletics Championship is open to all of the schools in the CNMI—both public and private—and is open to students aged 7 to 18.

Since the renovation of the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium is still going on, the All School Athletic Championship will be held at the Hopwood Middle School field from May 11 to 13, this Thursday to Saturday.
