$50k+ Raised at Lakad for Bayanihan

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Lakad for Bayanihan on September 10th, and to those who supported from afar! It was such an incredible day with 500+ attendees, amazing performers, and raffle prizes, and with your support, we were able to raise over $50,000 for livelihood- and health-related projects and initiatives in the Philippines that would provide the ever-needed relief and rehabilitation to vulnerable communities impacted by extreme poverty and disasters; and to support the expansion of the Filipino Bayanihan Center’s programs and services into launching the first Filipino Community Health Clinic in Portland, OR! Thank you to all of the organizers and volunteers that put this race and community festival together, thank you to our vendors who served delicious food and drink and sold unique handmade items and wellness products, and thank you to all of the organizations that came to share about their work. And most of all, a big THANKS to our community who continue to show up for us and our kababayans in need. We at the Foundation for Philippine Progress hold so much gratitude for everyone who had a hand in making this event a reality. It's with the strength and support of our community that we are able to carry forward our work. We couldn't do this without you! Maraming salamat from the bottom of our hearts
