THE moment of truth is here as Davao City, after almost two decades, hosts the Davao Region Athletic Association (Davraa) Meet again with the 2018 opening ceremonies set at 3 p.m. on Sunday at the University of Mindanao (UM) track oval in Matina.
This is going to be the first time that the city will welcome over 7,000 delegates of athletes, coaches and officials. Hosting an event of such magnitude is indeed challenging, albeit ambitious.
But organizers including the Department of Education (Deped)-Davao Region, DepEd-Davao City and the City Government of Davao are upbeat citing that last-minute concerns raised from billeting areas of delegates are being addressed immediately and security is being taken cared of through coordination with different law enforcement agencies.
On this note we laud the city government of Davao under the leadership Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio for accepting the challenge to host the Davraa Meet 2018. And we pray only the best for this hosting.
