READLANI Sportsfest 2017
Last April 26-28, Rehoboth participated in the 20th annual READLANI Sportsfest at the Pampanga State Agricultural University in Magalang, Pampanga. The theme this year was, “Batang READLANI: Hindi lang pang kinabukasan, maging pang palakasan.” READLANI is the Regional Association of DSWD Licensed NGOs and Institutions in Region 3, of which Rehoboth has been a member since 2003.
The 3 day event started out with an opening remarks, with speakers from the university, local and regional government offices. That was followed by the Mr. & Ms. READLANI pageant, cheer dance competition, declaration of games, and releasing of balloons to signify the start of the games in the afternoon. Rehoboth’s Mr. and Ms. READLANI contestants dressed in tennis-wear and in the cheer dance competition, Rehoboth gave a stunning performance dressed as Jokers and Harley Quinns. Ball games, board games, track and field events, and larong lahi games continued simultaneously for the next 2 days. The showcase of talent and cultural dance competition took place in the evenings.
At the awarding ceremony on the last day, Rehoboth took home the 2nd place trophies for juniors volleyball, seniors volleyball, seniors basketball, and the cheer dance competition, as well as several medals in track and field, board games, and larong lahi events. Our girls took home the trophy for OVERALL CHAMPIONS in the Girls’ Division.
CONGRATULATIONS to all for a job well done in all your games!
