In their mission to demonstrate that college sports still has a role to play in nation-building amidst the outbreak of the coronavirus disease, the De La Salle University Men’s and Women’s Football Teams delivered the proceeds of their second virtual event to a non-profit organization that takes care of children.
Members of the team traveled to the CRIBS Foundation Inc’s child welfare center in Antipolo City last February 12, 2021, to deliver infant milk, chocolate milk and vitamins for the institute’s residents. The goods were yielded from the proceeds of the Football & Fun For A Cause Part Two online workout session last January 16, 2021.
“Since there are no ongoing football tournaments, we have our training with a purpose by paying it forward and helping as much as we can. And by this, all players agree that we should do these series of events and hope others will do the same,” said coach Alvin Ocampo.
The travelling party to the said recipient included Ocampo, Office of Sports Development representative Gyn de Vera, men’s skipper Mauro Acot, women’s team captains Bea Delos Reyes and Shai del Campo, Tara Shelton and teammate Xylen Kharell.
This was the second charitable project of DLSU Football after the program mustered donations that amounted to P10,000, which was given to the City of Manila last October 26, 2020.
