Dear friends and supporters,
Exactly, 4 weeks from today, the team will represent the PDBF-Philippine paradragon delegation to the 14th IDBF World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand.
This is by far the ” olympics” of dragonboat racing in the world with over 80 countries participating.
This is considered a dream-come-true for our athletes who , for a fact has been sidelined , disenfranchised and deprived of the opportunity to enjoy and participate in sports due to the stigma attached their disabilities all their life a few years ago.
The paddlers shall be undergoing a 2-3 week in-house intensive training in preparation to the biggest race of their lives.
However, budget restraints has been a huge challenge for this plan. We believe that anything is possible if we step up as a community through our collective efforts.
We are aiming to raise at least PhP 54,600 (USD 1000) for the nutritional program during the course of the training.
We have also made a breakdown of expenses for those who are willing to provide IN-KIND DONATIONS.
Please do PM or comment below for inquiries and if you are interested to donate. We shall use this post to update everyone of the status of this fundraising drive.
Thank you so much!
God bless you all for your generosity.
OUR COMBINED DISABILITIES IS OUR GREATEST STRENGTH.
