Academy holding 16th Annual 5K ‘Fund’ Run/Walk


For the Umatuna Si Yu’os 

The Academy of Our Lady of Guam High School (AOLG) will be holding its sixteenth annual 5K “Fund” Run/Walk on Jan. 20, 2018. Everyone is invited to participate in this worthwhile, very fun “fund” run, and what 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 1968.

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 1967 to the class of 1968, and finally culminating with the start of the race promptly at 6 a.m.

The course will run through the streets of Hagåtña’s historical trail with the starting point between PDN and the school on Archbishop Flores Street. “Show time” is 5:15 a.m. with “go time” at 6 a.m.

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 AOLG Business Office, AOLG Website –, Royal Bics, and Healthy Q. The entry fee is $10 per person prior to race day or $12 per person if you register the morning of the race.

Registration the morning of the race will be held under 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! Main sponsors for Academy’s 16th Annual 5K include KUAM CareForce, Royal Bics, Yamaha, Ada’s Trust & Investment, Bank of Guam, Mobil Oil Guam, Inc., Sylvan Learning Center, PSLS Solar Power Systems, Cars Plus, Sagua Mañagu, Healthy Q and MetroPacific Media.

Join the Academy family on Jan. 20 and enjoy the early morning with a brisk walk/run or ride the “trolley” along the streets of Hagåtña and celebrate with the Academy!
