MANILA, Philippines – Adamson University's softball team redefined what it means to be a champion and found other ways to inspire the UAAP season during the break in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The reigning nine-time champions were stranded in the school dormitories, but they used their free time to help others through COVID (Charity Over Virus Indifference and Despair) and the Facemasks Cover Your Face Not Your Hearts program.
"For our part, even the small things can be of great help to the needy families here in Metro Manila, especially at times when we are most in need," said decorated Adamson head coach Ana Santiago, whose squad has teamed up to packaging goods for donations.
"We are very happy to be part of the program and we will continue to do everything we can to help."
The increased community quarantine imposed on Luzon last week prevented the players from returning to their respective provinces, but this situation did not prevent them from bothering to lend a hand.
"We have players who have been unable to return to their provinces because commuting has become very expensive, while others have been unable to because of the quarantine in the community," said Santiago.
"That is why we use this time to help and pray for our country."
