Cyclists pedal for dialysis patients
by Riemon Balan-eg

Forty-four cyclists pedaled the 31.9-kilometer distance from the Sabangan municipal hall to Kalimbatawa, Bauko, Mountain Province during the first PSI G. Bulalit COP Cup on Jan. 27.

Race director and Sabangan Municipal Police Station Chief Gilbert Bulalit said the proceeds of the bike for-a-cause are for dialysis patients Clarita Basilio, Rosita Cenon, and Donald Doco.

“We have been contributing for the dialysis of Mr. Doco, who is the husband of one of our non-uniformed personnel. Then I came to this bike for-a-cause idea and when I told my colleagues about it, they expressed their support,” Bulalit said.

They were able to raise P44,500, which were turned over to the beneficiaries after the race.

“Thank you so much to Sabangan MPS and to all the bikers who participated in this cause. I have my dialysis four times a week and it is a burden for us financially. This amount is surely a big relief,” Doco said after receiving the fund.

Winners for the adult male category are Renniel Cabanes taking first place, Leni Luck Chaluyen in second place, and Zuriel Docallas in third place.

As the only female who participated in the event, Aira Toyoken was automatically announced as champion for the adult female category.

Jeremiah Aswigue was the champion in the junior category while James Aboy and Bryckr Bangang took home the second and third places, respectively.

Special awards were given to Venyz Podes as the youngest biker and Darwin Fagsao as the oldest biker.

Bulalit thanked the Mountain Province Athletic Team and Universe Bicycle Store for sponsoring the event. He also commended Philippine Red Cross Mountain Province for serving as medics.

“This was our first time to organize such an event and it turned out successfully. We are thinking of doing it again but we have to plan yet. We hope we can invite more bikers to ride with us so that we can also include more beneficiaries,” he said.
