PHILCYCLING deputy secretary-general for Mindanao Salvador "Jun" Paholio, Jr. on Friday thanked the City Government of Davao, through the Sports Development Division of the City Mayor's Office, for supporting his events every year.
Paholio said, "Despite the many concerns of our city officials, they are still able to extend help for sports organizers like us."
He said they formed the Davao City Sports Consumer Cooperative, which is spearheading the Takbo para sa Atleta on Oct. 27, to complement the city's sports programs.
"It is our intention to also support the programs of the city under Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and city sports office OIC William "Butch" Ramirez and work together with other sports groups for the benefit of the city's athletes," he said in a phone conversation with Sun.Star Davao.
He added that if all stakeholders help and pool their resources together, less-fortunate athletes from the public schools will also be given the opportunity to compete in prestigious national tournaments.
Paholio added, "We are open for collaborations in supporting our athletes." (MLSA)
