The youth of the St. John Bosco Parish got a once in a lifetime chance to train with ONE Championship athletes through a community initiative spearheaded by Caltex Havoline.
Caltex Havoline brand ambassador Mark Striegl along with ONE Championship title holders Brandon Vera and Eduard Folayang trained with the children of the parish with the aim to empower them through physical fitness activities and inspire them to face life’s toughest challenges with endurance and genuine strength.
“In Chevron, we value people. The passion that drives us towards excellence is the same passion that inspires us to commit to giving the best to our partners, customers, and communities. The St. John Bosco Parish youth are particularly close to our hearts. For many years, we have helped them make a sustainable living through livelihood projects such as the Pugad Pandesal: Manna From Heaven, the Coffee & Saints Café, and the Caltex Mobile Mechanics. Just as Caltex Havoline puts the fight back in your engine, we want to empower the youth to fight for their dreams,” said Joseph N Bronfman, Area Business Manager, Philippines & Vietnam, Chevron Philippines Inc.
Though the athletes are in the thick of training for the upcoming ONE: Age of Domination on December 2 at the Mall of Asia Arena, they took time off to bond with the kids of St. John Bosco Parish and teach them a few of their moves in the cage.
As Striegl introduced the exercises, he also encouraged the youth to fight hard for their dreams.
“These kids have faced very difficult situations at a young age. Not having access to education is one of the most challenging obstacles, but they continually overcome it. I readily agreed to join this activity because I wanted to help empower them,” said Striegl.
Don Bosco PUGAD (Parish Urchins Gathered at Don Bosco) Center serves the underprivileged youth who are incapable of supporting their own education. Chevron and the parish are long-time partners, previously organizing livelihood projects and training programs together to equip them in making a sustainable living.
After the training exercises, the three fighters spent some time designing tambourines with the youth of PUGAD Center, which will be auctioned at ONE: Age of Domination event on December 2, 2016. Proceeds of which will be given to the center.
