Tan Holdings held the 9th Annual John Pangelinan (JP) Memorial Glow Run joined by 1,104 participants last February 9, 2017. JP Memorial Glow Run is an annual 5-kilometer fundraising run in memory of John Pangelinan, former Tan Holdings executive and publisher of Saipan Tribune. Proceeds went to the Commonwealth Cancer Association’s March Against Cancer.
This year’s run started at the Garapan Fishing Base in Gualo Rai to the 2.5 km turning point at Quartermaster Road and back to the Fishing Base. The runners this year have more than doubled compared to 2016 Glow Run’s 500 attendees, excluding the unregistered runners. Several groups of the community joined this event including soccer clubs, private and public school students.
