Community Seminar

Yesterday afternoon, UP RCY conducted a Community Seminar at Isla Pulang Bato, Barangay Silangan. A talk on Disaster Preparedness handled by the Quezon City Red Cross Chapter was given. In addition, a brief First Aid Seminar was shared by UP RCY members Pat Delas Alas and Arlon Fernandez.

20 pairs of slippers were given out as part of Share-a-Shinelas.

Children's activities were also held to entertain the kids. It included story-telling and games. The members were very much delighted to share stories and play with the kids.

Thank you to the Isla Pulang Bato Community for accommodating us. Kudos to the UP RCY team. Join us on May 9th for our Medical Mission.

Blood Rush: Aftershock

This October, prepare yourself for...

The UP Red Cross Youth's Blood Rush: Aftershock dares you to survive the night this October 26, 2014 at the UP Diliman Academic Oval, 6PM.

A 9.8 magnitude has just hit and the city is at chaos. The main goal is to reach the safe zone but you have to run through a course full of injured victims as well as damaged property. And as with all disasters, time is not on your side.

You can choose the easy way out (3 km) or the hard way (5 km).

Do you have what it takes to survive the Aftershock? Grab your friends for a thrilling night fun run!

You can register online either as an:
Individual -
or a Group (there are discounts if you come in groups of 5 or 8!) -

or at the UP Red Cross Youth tambayan at Vinzons Hall, UP Diliman starting September 30, 2014.

All proceeds will go to the Dugong Bayani Blood Network of the UP Red Cross Youth, which advocates safe and free blood donation through its network of voluntary blood donors contacted through SMS and social media platforms then assisted in the correspondence with the recipient – the success of this event will make way for a larger network and for more opportunities to reach new heights in terms of blood advocacy.
