Kiram ipasisilip programa
Nananatili ang Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) na mapasigla ang programa sa sports na pambabae sa kapuluan ng bansa gaya nang mga pinatupad na proyekto sa Women in Sports program sa nakaraaang anim na taon.
Kaugnay sa pagdiriwang ng PSC-Women in Sports, itatampok ng PSC web series ‘Rise Up! Shape Up!’ sa episode nito ngayong Hulyo 1 ang mga pambihirang nagawa at nakamit para sa kultura ng sports at talento ng kababaihan.
“People often think that sports are mainly for men. But recent sports successes are a testament that women have the strength and determination to win in sports and life. We are happy that through our programs we get to encourage women to appreciate sports and even take it up professionally,” pahayag Huwebes ni PSC-WIS oversight Commissioner Celia Kiram.
“It is fulfilling to be able to contribute to women and sports development, especially at the grassroots level because we want equitable opportunities for women in sports. We envision a stronger presence of women in whatever sporting field there is, locally and internationally. We at the PSC-Women in Sports also want to see more and more girls and women enjoying a healthier lifestyle through fitness and sports,” hirit pa ng opisyal.
Inihalintulad ni Comm. Kiram ang Women’s Martial Arts Festival na dinaluhan ng mahigit 15,000. Ang special webisode ay ipapalabas sa ganap na alas-7 ng gabi bukas (Sabado) at may rundown sa isinagawa rin ng ahensiya na Zumbarangay Pilipinas, K-Isport, at Gintong Gawad Awards.
“We are firm in our commitment to promote sports to achieving holistic wellness–from physical, mental, and emotional. And we dared to deliver on this commitment through Rise Up! Shape Up! giving our online audience access to information on physical fitness and sports appreciation,” panapos na sey ng nag-iisang babaeng commissioner. (Lito Oredo)
