The Bayanihan Walk, a four-kilometre fun walk, was successfully organized by the Philippine Embassy and the Philippine Bayanihan Society Singapore (PBSS) on Sunday, 21 May 2017, at the Labrador Park in Singapore. The walk-for-a-cause, which is already in its third edition, was held to support the charitable activities of PBSS and is intended as a platform to promote health and well-being and at the same time foster networking between members of the Filipino community and locals in Singapore. This year’s walk added some significance as it forms part of the activities that the Philippine Embassy is organizing and supporting on the occasion of ASEAN 50 and the Philippines’ chairmanship of ASEAN in Singapore. The half-day event was well-attended with more than 400 passes distributed to participants. The bayanihan spirit was manifested in the walk as preparations for the actual event were done by volunteers from the Filipino community in Singapore.
