The Pacific Century Fellows–Marianas Chapter held its PCF 5K “Back On Our Feet” Run/Walk last Saturday, Oct. 3, with a great turnout from the community. A total of 320 participants took to the course, in what proved to be a very successful fundraising event to support the Tan Siu Lin Foundation’s Project Ayudu campaign to raise $150,000 for recovery efforts from the sale of T-shirts.
One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the 5K will go directly to CNMI Advocacy for Recovery Efforts to help repair and rebuild homes damaged by Typhoon Soudelor.
“We appreciate the support of community members and organizations in our endeavors to rebuild homes damaged or destroyed by Soudelor. Thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, Fellows, and last and by no means least, our 320 participants without whom this event would not happen. Our 5K fundraiser was a tremendous success!” said Jerry Tan, president of Tan Holdings.
Major sponsors for the event are TSL Foundation and Delta Air Lines. Other sponsors include Brabu Pharmacy, Cutz & Colours Salon, Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan, Kanoa Resort Saipan, Let’s Go! Tour Company, Mariana Resort & Spa, Matson, McDonald’s, the NMI Cycling Federation, Pacific Islands Club, Pacific Trading, PHI Pharmacy, Saipan Tribune, Saipan World Resort, Taro Sue Store, Triple J Truckload Store, and Reps.
