ILOILO CITY, Jan. 14 – This city government's health and beautification programs will benefit from a sports event that will form part of this year's Dinagyang Festival.

This was announced by Federico Rentoy of the ProSports, the organizer of the First Iloilo Dinagyang Invitational Motocircuit and Motocross Competition slated Jan. 15-16.

Rentoy said the proceeds will be utilized for the rabies and dengue awareness campaigns of the city and likewise in the beautification of the portion of the Trenas Boulevard.

The Rotary Club of Iloilo West, which is also one of the organizers, will also be given a share for its Kidney Transplant Operation Program. It is a Matching Grant Program where the Rotary International shelled out US$ 2,000 for the operation.

The motocross circuit slated on Saturday will cover beginner, novice, intermediate, open, scooter and special event 50-up.

The motocross on Sunday, on the other hand, has three categories, namely motard, enduro, and production.

Rentoy said that they look forward to an exciting event because this would be the first time that they are having this competition as one of the activities to add color to the Dinagyang Festival.

The two-day competition will be held at the Prime Estate in Barangay Nabitasan/Magsaysay, Lapaz. (PNA)
