“We are conducting this year’s fund raising activity dubbed as Walk for a cause – 52 @52 to help the Bontoc Green Police and the garbage collectors as a way to recognize their “instrumental” role in minimizing garbage problems in this capital town and to help save a child who is fighting for dear life – Ezekiel Kolnog, a 12 year-old, grade 8 student who was recently diagnosed of stage 5 renal failure who is undergoing daily dialysis,” Dr. Chakas said.
The President’s Social Action Program (PSAP) started in 2014 which eventually became an annual fund raiser which coincides with the birthday of the College President.
