For the Umatuna Si Yu’os

The Academy of Our Lady of Guam (AOLG) will hold its 15th annual 5K “Fund” Run/Walk on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017.

Everyone is invited to participate in this worthwhile, very fun “fund” run which promises to be a memorable, exciting, and healthy public event.

Proceeds from this event are earmarked for scholarships and tuition assistance. Our local community along with the school’s students, alumnae, families, and friends are invited to help ring in the New Year, get fit, and help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Golden Jubilarian Class of 1967.

The Academy was established in 1949 and graduated its first class in 1953. Since then, more than 5,000 women have made Academy their second home as young women. Today, these graduates continue to be active in our community as well as leaders in our society both locally and globally “making a world of difference.”

Academy’s annual 5K will be dedicated to the graduating class celebrating their 50th class reunion, the Class of 1967. The event will open both on foot and in a trolley with many Academy alumnae present. “Show” time is 5:15 a.m. The event will begin with warm up at 5:30 a.m., followed by a “Moment of Silence” in memory of the alumnae who have gone before us, then the traditional “Passing of the Torch” from the Class of 1966 to the Class of 1967. Then, the race will begin promptly at 6 a.m.

The course will run through the streets of Hagatna’s historical trail with the starting point between the DNA building (Pacific Daily News) and the school on Archbishop Flores Street.

Certificates and medals will be awarded to top finishers in the “General Categories”. In addition, the alumnae class with the most attendance will be awarded the “Most Spirited Class” AOLG Alumnae Class.

Registration forms are available at the AOLG Business Office, the school’s website ( Royal Bics, and Healthy Q.

The entry fee is $10 per person prior to race day or $12 per person on the morning of the race. Registration on race day will take place beneath the school’s gym. Great door prizes will be drawn for those present and whose race numbers are called.

Parents, alumnae, and the entire community of Guam are encouraged to help out and join in the fun!
