BASKETBALL stars teamed up for a fellow legend as Alvin Patrimonio, Allan Caidic, Benjie Paras, and Ronnie Magsanoc joined other PBA greats in promoting the 'SKYWALKERUN: A Run for Samboy Lim' set for July 17 at the Blue Bay Walk in Pasay City.
A portion of the proceeds will help shoulder the medication of Lim, who has been paralyzed after collapsing from cardiac arrest during an exhibition game in November 2014. The San Miguel and Philippine team legend has been out of the hospital since 2015 but remains bed-ridden at his home and in need of constant medical supervision.
The event, organized by former actor-comedian Bearwin Meily’s RUNtarantantan, has three categories: 9K, 5K and 3K with finishers getting medals with the Skywalker’s likeness.
Participants will also wear a basketball jersey-styled singlet with Lim’s trademark No.9 that he wore in his playing days, notably with the San Miguel Beermen where he was an integral part of the 1989 PBA Grand Slam-winning squad.
