CEBU Pacific (CEB), the country’s largest national flag carrier, is opening a world of adventure all over the Philippines with the first ever Cebu Pacific Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge.
Five teams composed of 15 dynamic college students with an insatiable thirst for adventure and a knack for budget travel have been chosen to explore six destinations in the country from August 29 to September 2.
Armed with P30,000 per team, the teams’ primary objective is to accomplish the most number of fun activities in Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Clark, Davao, Iloilo and Manila with the least amount of money spent. The winning team will get 12 Cebu Pacific tickets to any domestic or international destination, three hotel accommodation packages, and three Canon S100 cameras.
Teams can also get additional prizes such as hotel gift certificates and broadband kits when they complete surprise challenges, highlighting CEB’s destinations.
Among the five teams competing in the backpacker challenge is Team BA, composed of Christian de Leon, Karla Toledo, and Rafael Ronquillo representing the University of Sto. Tomas. Roaring with energy, these Growling Tigers are all set for the ultimate backpacking trip.
From the mountains to the sea, Team Big Explorers composed of Benj Tuason and Iris Patricia Ang of De La Salle University, and Godfrey Medina of the Philippine State College of Aeronautics, are big on outdoor challenges. These friends have known each other for eight years and say that their unanimous thirst for adventure is what keeps them together.
Team Bukidnon consists of Central Mindanao University students Jade Maglasang, Christian Fallera, and Queen Eduave. These mountaineering enthusiasts have a passion for extreme adventure.
Free-spirited Cebuanas Nina Alcoseba and Regil Cadavos of University of the Philippines-Cebu, and Samantha Solidum of University of San Carlos are Team KeLoFe. The only all-girl team in the competition, they are confident that they are tough enough to beat the others.
