The country’s differently-abled athletes found a new ally in time for their campaign in the 2018 Asian Para Games this October in Pelambang, Indonesia.
The Caesar Wongchuking-led Mighty Sports Apparels and Accessories, Inc. has donated P150,000 to the Philippine Paralympic Committee (PPC), formerly Philippine Sports Association for the Differently Abled (PHILSPADA).
The cash donation came from Mighty Sports’ championship winnings in the 2018 Republika Cup held in Bulacan last April.
A simple turnover ceremony was held at the PPC headquarters in Pasig recently with Executive Director Mr. Dennis Esta and para-athletes Edwin Villanueva, Roland Sabido and Rufo Tablang in attendance.
Local athletic apparel manufacturer Mighty Sports was represented by Caesar Angelo Wongchuking, Dr. Edwin John L. Sy and Gen. MelitoMabilin (ret.).
“This donation will be a big help for our para-athletes in their upcoming participation in Indonesia,” said Esta.
