A portion of Roxas Boulevard and some streets in cities of Manila and Pasay will be closed to vehicular traffic on May 6 to give way for the Walk to Fight Poverty spearheaded by the Iglesia ni Cristo.

Jose Arturo Garcia, general manager of the Metro Manila Development Authority, said the closure of both lanes of Roxas Boulevard from Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue in Pasay City to P. Burgos Street in Manila would start on May 5 at 12 midnight up to May 6 at 10 p.m.

“The INC event is expected to be big since over a million people would join,” said Garcia.

The walkathon event will also utilize Quirino Grandstand, Luneta Park, vicinity of Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex, parts of Diosdado Macapagal Avenue, Gil Puyat Avenue, Taft Avenue and Road 10.

“We need the cooperation of the public. Stay away from Roxas Boulevard and some areas in Manila and Pasay if you do not have any business or anything important to do there,” said Garcia.
