Cebu Parklane International Hotel will hold the 8th edition of its yearly running event Hunat Sugbu on June 24, 2018.

Hunat Sugbu, otherwise known as Dagan Para ni Maning, is a commemorative run organized by the hotel in honor of its late president, Mr. Manuel G. Ting.

First organized in May 15, 2011, the run serves as a tribute to Mr. Ting and one of the company’s major corporate social responsibility projects at the same time. Proceeds of the run will be donated to a medical mission in partnership with Jesu Christi.

Hunat Sugbu 8 will start and end at The Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu. It will have four distance categories: 3k, 6k, 12k, 21k. Joel Baring serves as race director.

Cebu Parklane International Hotel gives more meaning to a traditional Christmas celebration by lighting a beautiful tree made purely out of recycled materials and starting a fundraising campaign for kids with leukemia.

The celebration of Christmas is about giving life and hope, and the hotel aims to do both this festive season, said Parklane general manager Cenelyn Manguilimotan.

“For past five years, Parklane has embarked on a campaign to go green. We have used water bottles and other trash we’ve collected to make beautiful things,” she added.

Parklane lights up a towering tree made out of Coca-Cola tin cans last November 14, also as a way of showcasing its partnership with the beverage company.

Coca-Cola will donate a chemotherapy vial for sick children helped by the Cancer Warriors Foundation for every trinket sold through the hotel’s “I can go green, I can save lives, I can because of a can” Christmas 2017 campaign.

Manguilimotan said kids with leukemia have the highest chances of surviving the cancer.

Vice Gov. Agnes Magpale was among the hotel’s tree-lighting guests. The hotel served a delicious spread of its unique take on favorite Cebuano food, including pungko-pungko and street food fare like fishball and squidball, during the well-attended event.
