“A Trek to Remember” is one of the more popular (and most awaited by members and volunteers) programs of K.I.D.S. Done at least once a year, we bring medical missions, schools supplies, books and rain gears to chosen remote highlands in the country. Our group composed of adventurous young professionals, young at heart, and climbing enthusiasts have one thing in common-a passion to share. Our rewards are newfound friendships, breathtaking scenery, and the high that you feel when you share.

The first trek brought us to Botok, Benguet with Naswak Elementary School as beneficiary. May of 2007, a group of 15 friends went to Barangay Cambulo, Banaue to visit Cambulo Elementary School for “A Trek to Remember II”.

“A Trek to Remember III” brought us to the rocky mountains of Kibungan, Benguet to visit two remote barangays; Sagpat & Lubo to distribute school supplies, clothes, books, jackets, rain boots, shoes, bags, and to conduct medical mission and distribute vitamins to around 500 children in the area. This third trek had 96 participants, most of whom just read or heard of the trek and/or were invited by friends.

Last October 23 – 25, A Trek to Remember IV served the Poblacion and eight (8) coastal and remote barangays of Baras in Catanduanes with more or less 1,100 children ages 0-17 as beneficiaries.

March of this year A Trek to Remember V brought medicines, doctors and dentists for the medical mission and gift-giving of school supplies in preparation for the opening of the school year with more or less 700 children of Tala-andig tribes of Miarayon in Bukidnon."

This October, we are inviting medical practitioners: doctors, nurses & dentists, our fellow KIDS members & volunteers, trekkers and friends to fly with us in Bohol to serve the Eskaya tribe and locals of neighboring communities: eight (8) barangays: Dusita, Magsaysay, Matin-ao, Danicop, Casilay, Abakhanan, Cahayag & Canta-ub of Sierra Bullones for the next, "A Trek To Remember VI".
