JPCS Amazing Race: Survivor Challenge (Summer Edition)

The summer season has been one of the most-awaited periods of every student. Not only can you get a break from all the load of projects and exams and homeworks, but it is also the time we get to relax and have fun.

This summer, the Junior Philippine Computer Society (JPCS) Mapua University Chapter is about to experience the most memorable summer yet.

JPCS-MU holds an annual Amazing Race challenge inspired from a TV show of the same name where members and applicants get to build a stronger camaraderie while having a great time with each other as everyone unwind from books and school works. This year, we have chosen a theme that greatly complements the season of heat and fun—a beach-cove adventure of exciting challenges, Survivor Challenge 2018.

            Amazing Race: Survivor Challenge 2018 will be held on March 24-25, 2018 at Among Pulo Cove Morong, Bataan, exclusive to approximately 90 participants. It features beach surrounded by cove of greens that complements the summer heat with cool breeze and homey feel.
