PBA Legends inspire Kids in Brgy Malaubang, Ozamis

Former PBA players Benjie Paras, Ronie Magsanoc and Alvin Patrimonio visited Barangay Malaubang in Ozamis City last July 12, for the Alaxan FR Court of Inspiration.

Court of Inspiration is basically a campaign by building basketball courts all over the Philippines.

The former PBA champions gave basketball tips and drills to as well words of inspiration to the local children.

Patrimonio shared his experience when he started playing basketball and his rise to stardom that surely gave the kids the inspiration to achieve their dreams of becoming basketball stars themselves.

During the interview. I asked Magsanoc a question that Patrimonio also answered, “Bakit ka passionate sa pag participate mo sa Court of Inspiration?”

I myself a soccer coach to kids, but knowing this type of program exists in Philippine basketball is truly an inspiration, a good diversion from negative influences.

These kids will grow up to be a positive influence and also be an inspiration in the future.

Anong masasabi mo? 🙂
