Before the school year begins--and the kids start to get busy with their homework and projects--it's high time to treat the whole family to a bonding experience under the bright summer sun.

It doesn't have to be an expensive day in a beach resort or a shopping marathon at the mall. It could be anything from a simple picnic to a fulfilling fun run.

This year, Lancaster New City is holding its third "Grand Family Weekend" on May 27, an annual gathering for families which promises a whole day of fun and bonding activities for the whole gang.

Dubbed "FUN & RUN," this three-kilometer run will feature an obstacle course where families can have fun while stretching their muscles with these activities:

• Tire Fun
Get ready to huddle your way through 300 colored tires.

•  Web of Fun
Pass through a web of elastic rubber strings.

• Dodge Fun
Dodge big balls of fun as they swing cross your path.

• Slide Fun
Slide and glide across a 100-meter inflatable slide.

• Maze of Fun
Don’t get lost and find your way on the other side of the maze.

•  Bridges of Fun
Cross one of the three bridges without falling off in the mud pool.

• Foam Fun
Enter the tunnel of foam and come out light and bubbly.

• Fun Attack
Fight your way across a league of zombies and fun mascots.

• Mt. Fun
For the grand finale, jump on and climb the inflatable Mt. Fun.

Aside from its promise of fun and family bonding, this year's "Grand Family Weekend" aims to help school children have a more exciting year by giving them new pairs of shoes. Proceeds of this event will benefit the pupils of Brgy. Tampucao in Lambunao and Brgy. Talongonan in Passi, Iloilo.

PRO-FRIENDS has been active in rebuilding the lives of families in the said communities.

What began as a pilot project to relocate 540 families who were victims of Typhoon Yolanda has expanded to benefit a total of 3,600 families in 4 communities in Passi City and Lambunao, Iloilo.

With the goal of providing an enabling environment for poor families to rise out of poverty, PRO-FRIENDS in partnership with the Local Government Unit provides land, land development and community infrastructure, and works with Gawad Kalinga to provide values formation, grassroots community empowerment and youth development.

For a P500 registration fee, you will get a race kit that contains a race shirt, race bib, hand towel, and finisher's medal. To register to this fun run and help school kids have a new pair of shoes, click here. You may also follow Lancaster New City's official Facebook page for more updates.
