The UP Manila community is encouraged to join the activities for the 123rd PCSA with the 10-year theme: “Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant Heroes”, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and its attached agencies, will be conducting the simultaneous 2023 PCSA Plant-Run nationwide on 17 September 2023 (Sunday).
The Civil Service Commission National Capital Region (CSC NCR) and CSC Regional Office No. IV (CSC RO No. IV) have joined forces for this event and the said activity will be held at Brgy. Cuyambay, Tanay Rizal Province.
In a meeting between CSC RO IV and NCR, it was agreed upon that the “run” component will no longer push through due to the risks involved. Therefore, the committee decided to continue the planting activity only at the identified plant site/s. Participants must be physically fit, agile and willing to walk or trek from the parking area to the plant site which is about 3km back and forth. Thus, participants are advised to wear appropriate hiking attire.
Distance from Quezon City going to the Plant site at Brgy Cuyambay, Tanay, Rizal Province is 44km with the travel time (early morning) of approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours.
The participant’s planting kit will be given to the field office for distribution to the registered participants once available.
Proceeds from the 2023 PCSA Plant-Run is for the benefit of the Pamanang Lingkod Bayani (PLBi), a program that provides one-time financial assistance and scholarship opportunities in honor of government workers who died in the line of duty.
In this regard, we are respectfully inviting you to participate in this noteworthy endeavor.
Registration fee is Php 550 per participant and will be covered by UPM. The registration is until 7 September 2023. For more information, please call Mr. Jorel Manalo @ 88141227.
