QCIM Night Run

By Runningatom
It's the Diamond Jubilee celebration of Quezon City. With its "Future Perfect" theme, the Quezon City government is finally holding its yearly QCIM after a year of hiatus. This time, they're taking this exciting race on a different level by holding it as a night run that will showcase the sights and sounds of Quezon and Commonwealth Avenues.
Present during the event launch were Quezon City Administrator Mr. Aldrin Cuña, AIDS Society of the Philippines' Executive Director Ms. Ma. Cecilia Añonuevo, Quezon City PIA-DENR Rgional Director Ms. Riza Baldoria, Runner-blogger turned QC 1st District Councilor Ms. Doray Delarmente, and TriAthlete/QC 4th District Councilor Vincent Belmonte. The program was hosted by no other than the celebrity Jeffrey Santos (Judy Ann Santos' brother).
