UPLB Loyalty Day Run is back!

The UP Vanguard, Inc. – Los Baños Chapter will be holding the UPLB Loyalty Day Run for the second time. This coming October 12, everyone, especially the Los Baños community, is invited to join in the commemoration of UPLB’s 101st Loyalty Day!

UPLB Loyalty Day is celebrated every October 10 in commemoration of the spirit of volunteerism in the hearts of the UPLB community. The history of Loyalty Day goes way back 1918 where more than half of the UPLB students and faculty enlisted to fight with the Allies in World War I. They didn’t get to fight since an agreement was signed which ended the war, but their bravery is an inspiration that lives on until today.

2018 marked the centennial anniversary of the Loyalty Day. It was in this year that the UP Vanguard, Inc. decided to hold the first ever Loyalty Day Run. More than 900 students, employees, and athletes joined the fun run called Takbo Para sa Katapatan. This year, get ready and gear up because Loyalty Day Run is back! We hope to see you on October 12, 2019 at the UPLB Grandstand and celebrate UPLB’s 101st Loyalty Day with us!
