On June 10, Nissan Guam hosted its 10th annual 7.5K/2K Flag Run, raising a total of $18,000 for Mañelu, Catholic Social Services, and Guam Girl Scouts, according to General Manager Philippe Gerling.

“For the past 10 years, we’ve had the privilege to work with some wonderful partners and sponsors to help raise nearly $160,000 for the children and families of Guam,” said Gerling. “We are proud to work alongside Mañelu (formerly Big Brothers Big Sisters Guam), Catholic Social Services and Guam Girl Scouts, to assist with fundraising and awareness for their phenomenal organizations.”
