Gaisano Country Mall 20th Anniversary Run this October 13, 2013

How fast time flies! Gaisano Country Mall is already on its 20th year. I will never forget Gaisano Country Mall because as a former student in USC Talamban Campus and a former Talamban resident, it is where I used to go to relax and buy groceries and Christmas gifts. And now the said mall is celebrating the milestone by organizing a run in cooperation with the C.U.R.E.
