Around 500 staff from Luzon operations gathered together to celebrate oneness and unity as a family during the Luzon Regional Staff Spiritual Retreat and Sports Fest at Facundo Farms and Resort, Magalang, Pampanga last October 14-15, 2017.

All staff geared up for the regional sports fest the following day. Seven areas raised their banners and altogether trooped to Magalang Sports Complex to officially commence the series of tournaments.
