LAKAD PDX presents an opportunity to take first steps into supporting the health and wellness of the Filipino people, they hope to create a pathway for your motions to transform into a continuous movement.

All proceeds from this race will go to the Filipino Bayanihan Center, a migrant service center that aims to connect community members to essential resources, while building capacity to engage with the issues we face as a community towards change and the Foundation for Philippine Progress, an organization dedicated to empower and engage communities in programs and projects for the Philippines to secure quality health, education, and basic human rights for every Filipino.
