The caravan started at Capitol Park with nearly 50 vehicles. Took the Bacon District to Prieto Diaz with more than ten vehicles joining the convoy. Pink ribbons waved along the side of the road.

Arriving Gubat, about additional 40 vehicles joined the Pink Caravan. Pink ribbons also adorned the houses and roads.

Twenty minutes later, the Leni caravan reached Barcelona where hundreds of volunteers were waiting.

While the vehicles on the highway had decreased, the number of vehicles, jeeps and motorbikes from Bulusan had increased.

As the Caravan crossed Bulusan to Irosin provincial road, fresh batch of Irosin volunteers, hundreds of them, in various vehicles joined the caravan.

Crossing Maharlika Highway, five (5) trucks of women and vehicles joined the convoy despite the bad weather.

A few vehicles from Casiguran also drove back to Sorsogon City.
