To encourage members of the field of law to engage in healthy habits like running as an outlet from their busy lifestyles, the USJ-R School of Law Alumni Association organized its first ever fun run on January 27.
The health and wellness activity included three categories: 3km, 6km, and 12km which was held at the Cebu Business Park. The route was along Mindanao, Luzon, and Cardinal Rosales avenues and then making a turn to Samar and Leyte loops.
The first three to finish the 12km run for both female and male categories received cash prizes. These were P3,000.00 for the champion, P2,000.00 for the 1st Runner-up, and P1,000.00 for 2nd Runner-up.
Eric Chipsiror finished first with a recorded time of 38 minutes and 54.210 seconds for the male category. With the recorded time of 49 minutes and 10.760 seconds, Melody Perez won first on 12-km female category run.

The activity was done in partnership with the Oriental Port and Allied Services Corporation (OPASCOR) and Diadem Trucking.
According to the Hedilisa Gallardo, secretary of the School of Law, the money garnered from the event will be used by the Alumni Association to fund the Bar Ops.
Bar Ops is a group of volunteers who assist Josenian bar examinees during their four-week examination in Metro Manila. They provide moral and logistical support during the nerve-wracking journey of taking the exam before becoming a full-fledged lawyer.
