534 LoveBags and 2,800 Mingo Meals in honor of Mikel

Mikel Lovina’s family and friends comes through once again! The 22-km Mikel Lovina Jamborun held on February 3, 2019 commemorated the passing of Mikel Lovina, who was only 18 when he died in a car accident. Started as a family fun run in 2013, it’s become a yearly tradition and has now evolved into a fundraising event for charity. This is the second year that the Jamborun proceeds have been allocated for the people NVC serves.

The results are in! Runners and supporters raised a total of 534 LoveBags and 2,800 Mingo Meals for Filipino children in need. Watch this video posted by Mikel’s sister Ines, produced by Rafi Silero.

Children of the indigenous Ata Manobo people in the mountains of Capalong, Davao del Norte receive the blessings shared by Mikel’s loved ones. Mikel lives on!
