Alaska is a very diverse state, and that’s what makes it unique along with the beautiful mountains, lake, rivers and trails to enjoy all year long summer or winter.

Filipino - American Community of Matsu Kabayan Inc. is hosting its 1st Annual World Day 5K Run & Kids 1-Mile Run. Experience the one-of-a-kind run with a twist! Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Palmer Public Library, we are inviting any nationalities living in the Mat-Su and neighboring areas to come and join us in celebrating diversity.

 Dress for success! We encourage participants to show different nationalities, culture or traditions within Alaska. We want to celebrate our diverse state. You can even come as you are or wear any traditional dress/costume or show the color of your country of origin or any country you want to represent.
