Adamson University’s Softball Team are showing that they are champions both on and off the diamond.
Last weekend, the Lady Falcons were left stranded in the dormitories of the school and so they decided to band together and pack goods that were to be distributed in various parts of Manila.
This is their way of supporting the Vincentian priests’ Charity Over Virus, Indifference and Despair (COVID) and Facemasks Cover Your Face Not Your Hearts program.
The Lady Falcons were supposed to begin their bid for a 10th straight UAAP softball crown on February 17. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the enhanced community quarantine afterward, the tournament was suspended.
“For our part, even small things can help families that are in need here in Metro Manila, especially during this time when we need each other like never before,” said Adamson head coach Ana Santiago.
“We are very happy to be a part of this program, and we will continue to do this in the best possible way. We have players who have not returned to their province because the travel expense is too costly, and others, who have reached out to the quarantined community,” shared Santiago.
“So we will take this time to help and pray for the people.”
As of March 23, 2020, 462 people had tested positive for COVID-19 in the Philippines.
