Mass was conducted by Fr. Augustine Kihoro who is the youth chaplain for Ruaraka deanery. His main teaching was coherence among the youths and bringing together of youths through sports.
Soon after Mass, the program spilled out into the main agenda which was sports. All participants converged in the field as supporters cheered their teams to victory.
The competition was at its peak with every team trying to show dominance in the various sports.
The climax was the 4 x 100 meters relay for both boys and girls. It was a race worth watching. This is because among all events it was the most cheered and was the ultimate track event. The day’s events came to an end at around 6.30 pm.
