The finish line at the 2012 Manitoba Marathon

June 17, 2012 – Weeks of training is finally put to the test as UPAA-MB members and family participate in the 34th annual Manitoba Marathon. The annual Father’s Day event’s goal is to raise awareness and raise funds to assist people living with intellectual disability. It is also quickly becoming an annual UPAA-MB tradition, and lines up perfectly with this year’s T-Shirt design contest theme of “active and healthy living.”

The participants enjoyed perfect running weather and a mosquito-free route as they ran their respective events.

The following members (and family) participated in this year’s events:

Full Marathon

  • Norman Garcia
Half Marathon
  • Lourdes Casañares
  • Jullie Quijano
  • Peter Tan
10k Run
  • Kristine Acab-David

  • Jackie Flores
  • Joanna Ocampo-Flores
  • Anna Maniquiz

  • Bless Ramos
