7th Trek ‘N Treat

ROTA Philippines Incorporated
 in collaboration with ATTACK CDO – All Terrain Trekkers and Cross-Country Klub invites you to its 7th Trek n’ Treat on April 2, 2016 held at Mintugsok water falls.

Trek and Treat is a fund-raising project through trekking activities for kids who may need treatment through surgery and for medical bills that may arise after.

This fund raising event will be for the benefit of “Baby Gio Paolo” who is in dire need of financial assistance to complete the 4 million medical expenses for a liver transplant which will be done in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Kaoshung, Taiwan.

Baby Gio Paolo Peralta is suffering from Biliary Atresia as diagnosed by the attending physician Dr. Jesamine Sareno of Maria Reyna Xavier University Hospital. Biliary atresia is a rare disease of the liver and bile ducts that occurs in infants. To extend Baby Gio Paolo’s life, he needs a liver transplant. According to the parents, this is a rare case in the Philippines. At first, no doctors will accept Gio’s case since there is not much established liver transplant program in the country for pedia.

We will be collecting Php 100.00 as registration fee. Other than to register, we also encourage everyone to donate in any amount. You may also contact the parents of Baby Gio Paolo for your donations thru this number: 09063222122 – Ruby Peralta.
