More than 25,000 civil servants together with their family and friends joined R.A.C.E. to Serve Fun Run IV, Sept. 6 at the SM Mall of Asia grounds. The fun run, organized by the Civil Service Commission, opened the 114th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary (PCSA) with the theme “Tapat na Serbisyo Alay Ko Dahil Lingkod Bayani Ako.” Held September every year, the Civil Service Month commemorates the birth of the civil service in the Philippines, as well as celebrates the heroism of the country’s state workers.
