World Youth Day Run

The World Youth Day Run

Back in 1995, my grandfather, sister, an ex-boyfriend and I camped in the grounds of Rizal Park to participate in the World Youth Day celebration and to try and catch a glimpse of Pope John Paul II. Close to 5 million people attended the event. I remember singing the official song of the event “Tell The World of His Love”. It was such a memorable experience. This including my grandfather’s traffic harrowing driving after the event made it unforgettable 🙂

World Youth Day 1995

To celebrate the beautification of Pope John Paul II and in support of the Archdiocese of Manila’s preparatory activities for the upcoming World Youth Day gathering in Madrid, Spain on August 2011, The World Youth Day Fun Run was organized. The aim of this event is to raise funds to send finance the trip of our youth delegates to the WYD celebration this year.
