Esteban donates PHI team allowance, incentive for frontliners

Maxine Esteban of Ateneo added her entire 2019 salary from the Philippine Sports Commission to close out her "A Small Thing Goes A Long Way" fundraising drive for medical frontliners and vulnerable communities last Sunday. Wanting to reach exactly P500,000, the 19-year-old national team fencer decided to add her allowance and, as well as, her incentive for winning a bronze medal in the Team Foil event during the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. "First off, I want to thank all our donors, without whom this project would not have been possible," expressed Esteban. "We were able to raise around 360,000 pesos from our donors but my sisters and I wanted to reach 500,000 so I decided to share my blessings as well." The money raised went to purchasing packs of rice and personal protective equipment. The Esteban sisters distributed 150 packs of five-kilogram rice for UERM, 400 packs of five-kilogram rice for UST Hospital, 150 packs to National Children's Hospital, 2,400 packs of two-kilogram rice and 150 packs of 25-kilogram rice to the San Juan City Hall, and 1,000 pieces of face shields to Cardinal Santos, UERM, MMC, and NCH. Besides this, they also sent out 92 bottles of alcohol and 50 Uratex COVID-19 pillows to numerous hospitals as well. But it does not stop there for Esteban and her sisters. Currently, they are working on 10 paintings that they will sell or auction off to raise more funds for the frontliners. "Because we heard that there are many of our brothers and sisters that are still in need. We wanted to think of more ways to help them, that is why me and my sisters have another project on-going which is to sell our paintings," shared the UAAP Season 81 Women's Fencing Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player. "We plan to put up 10 of our paintings. Me and my sister have been painting a lot during the quarantine period. We have been watching the tutorials of Jay Lee, an artist who uses aluminum foil and cotton buds for his work." Esteban, a sophomore taking up Management Engineering, also made the most of her time during the on-going enhanced community quarantine. Instead of being idle, Esteban enrolled in multiple online classes by Wharton and Yale University, finishing short courses in Entrepreneurship, Viral Marketing, Introduction to Marketing, Customer Analytics, Introduction to Marketing, Financial Markets, and Introduction to Negotiation.      .....»»

Student-athletes helping out in pandemic emulate UAAP values

UAAP officials lauded the student-athletes of member schools for their initiative to actively extend help to those in need during this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Since the start of the community quarantine, athletes in their own capacity organized and joined fundraising drives, distributed personal protective equipment and other essentials to medical and security frontliners, handed out relief goods to affected communities and even served as frontliners. “Allow us to emphasize lang na wala kaming inutusan sa mga ‘yan. Nagugulat na lang kami na it's very voluntary,” said UAAP Executive Director Atty. Rebo Saguisag on Tuesday during the online session of the Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum. “These are student-athletes na nag-aaral, naglalaro but at the end of the day when the nation calls for it in a broader spectrum of life they were able to respond,” added Saguisag, who was joined by Season 83 President Em Fernandez of Ateneo in the in the session presented by San Miguel Corporation, the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), Amelie Hotel Manila, Braska Restaurant, Go For Gold PH and powered by Smart. Basketball stars including Ricci Rivero of University of the Philippines, Mike and Matt Nieto and Thirdy Ravena of Ateneo, Rhenz Abando and CJ Cansino of University of Sto. Tomas, Encho Serrano and Justine Baltazar of De La Salle University and women’s cager Jack Animam of National University were among those who participated in fundraising drives and donated relief goods to vulnerable communities. Animam’s teammate Ria Nabalan served as a frontliner as a Philippine Navy personnel.   Active volleyball players joined former UAAP volleyball stars in various jersey auctions and fund-raisers while other student-athletes from different sports disciplines, including fencer Maxine Esteban of Ateneo did their part to help.        “We have a lot of student-athletes who have been helping in their own capacity. We have athletes from the tennis community, athletes from the volleyball community and athletes from the fencing community who have been helping everyone. Even internally, we have athletes in the dorm who have been helping out with the relief efforts of Ateneo,” said Fernandez talking about Ateneo athletes’ efforts.   “Just to cite, the athletes of Adamson who are still in the dorm of Adamson are helping out the communities outside,” he added. Despite being affected by the pandemic themselves especially with the cancellation of Season 82 and the possibility of pushing back the opening of Season 83 to early next year, the officials gave praise to the student-athletes for their actions amid this trying time.    “It’s reflective of the values taught by each member institution and I guess the value of the UAAP wants to share. We’re all in this together,” said Saguisag.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Marano on beast mode in delivering relief goods to affected volleyball game personnel

Aby Marano once again unleashed her beast mode. Not on court, of course, because we’re still under community quarantine and volleyball action is still far from its resumption with the current situation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This time, the national team skipper strapped on her seatbelt and went on a three-day relief run in cities within Metro Manila and nearby provinces to deliver relief goods for volleyball match-day personnel affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The F2 Logistics star brought the food packs, groceries and essentials bought from the funds collected in the fundraising event organized by the Volleyball Community Gives Back PH to the homes of volleyball personnel whose source of income was halted after the cancellation of volleyball leagues including the NCAA, UAAP, the Philippine Superliga and the Premier Volleyball League. Marano posted a video of her delivering the goods on her YouTube Channel. She drove to Sta. Maria and Bocaue in Bulacan, Cavite and around Metro Manila, bringing help to technical officials, referees and court assistants.   The VCGBPH over the weekend held a fund-raising event where volleyball stars showcased their off-court talents online in the SERVE AS ONE Variety Show. The organization has been very active in its relief efforts since the outbreak of the contagion as they donated personal protective equipment (PPEs), face masks, alcohol, disinfectants and goods to frontliners as well as extended help to families in vulnerable communities.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
