“Run for lumads” is a fund raising event for our Lumad brothers and sisters as we celebrate Indigenous Peoples month this October. This event is initiated by the Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio Foundation. Inc., also to commemorate the martyrdom of Fr. Pops, an Italian missionary who journeyed with the rural poor and lumads of Mindanao for 33 years before he was killed on October 17, 2011. The Foundation continues and expands his services in education, health, agricultural production and protection of the environment, and in building multicultural communities where people enjoy mutual respect, justice, peace and solidarity.
The Foundation is currently in partnership with grassroots lumad organizations in seeking the development of their people by providing services in education, health, and agriculture. Our service areas are lumad and poor farming communities all over Mindanao and most them are in the hinterlands, in areas that are hardly reached by social services. The proceeds of this event will be used to provide more services for these communities.
