The Media Tour

After the inaugural ceremony, members of the media were able to tour around the new site. We were able to see the different stages of the programs and understand the importance of each stages. It was very interesting to know RAFI's program in a nutshell.

One of RAFI-CAK's main concern/priority is safety. In all the challenges, RAFI makes sure that safety is to be considered first before the actual challenge is performed. RAFI is very strict in implementing their safety guidelines. A medical check-up is required before the participant can be admitted to the program. Through its health and safety policies and procedures, participants can freely participate in the challenges knowing that their safety is taken seriously.
