The Los Baños Group (LBG), Incorporated will hold a “Takbo ng Bayan para sa Kabataan” on May 18, 4 am at the UP Los Baños Baker Hall.
According to Randolph Tolentino, the activity head and one of the prime movers of the LBG Inc., the fun run aimed to gather funds for high school scholarships. Tolentino explained that LBG Inc. members have observed that several elementary students are not able to pursue high school because of financial constraints. The organization will be coordinating with the Los Baños National High School and Los Baños Community National High School in identifying deserving students for the scholarship.

The organization was registered at the Securities and Exchange Commission in January 2013 and is a recognized civil society organization as well as a member of the Municipal Development Board.
