As we put the struggles of 2020 behind us, we are hopeful and offer a Prayer of Solidarity from our island’s most recognizable spiritual leaders of the Evangelical, Methodist, Seventh-Day Adventist, Episcopal, Lutheran, and Catholic followers. Let us all come together in unity to remember our brothers and sisters that we have lost to COVID-19, the loved ones they left behind, and those who continue to struggle. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our way of life but our Guamanian’s will continue to stay cautious of keeping themselves, family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors safe.

EVENT MEDIA RELEASE

The Guam Educational Telecommunication Corporation, also known as PBS Guam hosts the PBS Guam 671 Virtual Challenge. In an effort to engage our island residents in better physical and mental health, PBS Guam, KGTF, Channel 12 will be hosting the PBS Guam 671 Virtual Challenge throughout the month of November 2020. As Guam’s only non-profit, public television station, the goal of the challenge is to raise money to continue the mission and operation in providing quality educational and informative television programs for all ages.

The 671 Virtual Challenge is the first of its kind for PBS Guam. At this point of our “new normal” a pre-pandemic 5K Challenge cannot be held. The 671 Virtual Challenge would allow for participants to accumulate either 10, 20, or 50 miles between November 1 and November 30, 2020. Miles can be recorded through the use of any mobile distance tracking application while running, walking, or wheeling. PBS Guam highly encourages participants to practice social distancing measures and to adhere to all current executive orders put in place by Governor Lourdes A. Leon Guerrero to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Interested individuals can register by visiting the PBSGuam.org website. Payments will be made online via PayPal. Off-island participants are welcomed to participate. Prizes and participation gifts will be given to each registered participant when he/she reaches and submits their distance goal of choice. PBS Guam can send these items to finalists via the U.S. Postal Service, at an extra fee. Distance goals must be submitted to run4pbs@pbsguam.org before 5 p.m., December 7, 2020. Prizes will be distributed at a centralized location to be announced or shipped worldwide via USPS for $10.00. In addition to seeking on or off island participants for the challenge, PBS Guam is also asking the business community of Guam to become a supporter of PBS Guam by sponsoring the virtual event. For more information on the event and pricing contact Christine Flores-Dela Cruz, Acting Development Director at (671) 787-1377.

Ina Carillo, PBS Guam General Manager states “While our mission of providing quality educational programing for our community is what we always strive for, hosting the PBS 671 Virtual Run will be beneficial to both our station and community at large. We hope to encourage or spark better physical and mental health for all while supporting our mission at the same time”. “I challenge our local community to participate. Let’s all register and strive to run, walk or wheel – 10, 20 or 50 miles in November”, she also stated.
