PENAMPANG – The first stage of the Penampang Youth Day 6 (PYD6-2017), with the official theme ‘Do not be afraid’ and ‘I want to serve,’ was officially launched on 26 Apr 2017 at the Church of Assumption of Our Lady Sugud (CAOL) here. CAOL hosted the 5th edition of the camp two years ago.
The Mass, which was celebrated by Father Wiandigool Runsab, preceded the launching ceremony, which was to officially introduce the PYD6 committee members and to unveil the official logo. The logo was chosen from the logo contest, organised by the media team hmonths earlier.
The ceremony involved a symbolic hand-over of the banner containing the official logo between former host CAOL Sugud and the current host parish, St Michael Church Penampang.
Penampang Youth Day 6 will be held on 31 Aug – 3 Sept 2017 at St Michael Parish with an estimated involvement of 500 participants.
It is now entering a fundraising phase where the upcoming events are a 10-km PYD6 Run on June 17, a Selfie contest as well as a Short Film contest.
Runners of the 10-km Run will only have to pay RM75 and each will get a race pack containing a T-shirt, Bib number, finisher medal and a certificate. Interested runners can contact Wendy (016-8229179), or Howell (016-8482938) or Pamila (014-3575895).
