The women’s basketball team of National University (NU) is the latest addition to the athletes who are taking part in the Milo Home Court campaign.
The Lady Bulldogs, who became the hottest women’s basketball team in the Philippines after winning six consecutive University Athletics Association of the Philippines championships, will be present in Milo’s online programs and social media activities to teach kids basic sports skills while at home.
“The rare combination of heart and skill that these ladies have shown on and off the court make them the perfect role models for kids and aspiring athletes. We are delighted to have the NU Lady Bulldogs be part of the Milo family,” said Lester Castillo, Nestle Philippines’ assistant vice president.
In response, former NU star Jack Animam said, ““We are happy to be part of a campaign where we can utilize our abilities to motivate young girls and boys to pick up a basketball and pursue their dreams.”
Joining Animam in the online activities are Monique Del Carmen and Camille Clarin.
“Through this program, we hope to teach kids to be determined and creative, which are essential attributes that make a true champion,” Clarin said.
The Milo Home Court has become an alternative for the said sports drink brand to still provide kids education in certain sports amid the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, which stalled the Milo Summer Sports Clinics for this year. PNA
