MANILA, Philippines - Around 3,000 runners supporting the presidential bid of Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard-bearer Gilberto “Gibo” Teodoro Jr. participated in a fun run at The Fort in Taguig City yesterday.
“I am humbled by the number of volunteers present here today,” Teodoro said, as he ran alongside the volunteers clad in Teodoro’s signature color, green. The run is dubbed “Go Green, Takbo Para sa Pagbabago.”
Joining Teodoro in the early morning run, which has three-kilometer and five-kilometer categories, is his wife, Rep. Tarlac 1st District Rep. Nikki Prieto-Teodoro, and Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita.
Ermita’s presence doused speculations on the supposed falling out of the Lakas-Kampi-CMD elders and leaders.
“This signals the snowballing of support. Rest assured that we will repay the trust of the people,” Teodoro said, adding that the outpouring of support “shows that efforts of disseminating information about our platform of governance are bearing fruit.” – Jaime Laude
