FZ contributes to Haiyan victims

30 Nov

ALL proceeds from the Fitness Zone’s monthly in-house event for November will go to victims of the recent super typhoon Haiyan that had devastated the Philippines.

Combining fitness exercise and charity drive, members of Fitness Zone (FZ) took part in the two-hours spinning marathon Wednesday evening.

Members of the club have donated not only in cash but also clothing, food, drinks, medical utilities, and housing needs for the victims

FZ opened its doors to members and to the public as a drop off location, and is closely working with LBC on this project.

Wu Chun, the owner of the Fitness Zone, said, “One of Fitness Zone’s visions is to make a difference to others’ lives and that boundaries do not stop once we step out of Fitness Zone. We are always concerned of what’s going on in the communities and will do our part to give a helping hand to those that are in need.”

The greatest satisfaction he said, “is the opportunity to influence others to do something good to the society and i am extremely proud of Fitness Zone members for their kind-hearted donations and support for the Haiyan victim. We received 126 cartons of clothing, food, water and household items. Our old friend, Lotus Light Charity, also donated tons of medical supplies such as bandages, medicine, nasal oxygen cannula for children, gauge swap and rehydrating salt”.

In a speech at the event, Embassy of Philippines Charge d’ Affaires and Minister Celeste Balatbat said, “Being a Fitness Zone member for four years, I have noticed that their contributions to the community are endless and on behalf of the Haiyan victims, i would like to take this opportunity to thank Wu Chun, Fitness Zone staff and members for their generosity. These victims need our support and what we are doing can indeed make a difference to their lives.”

In addition, all participants must have their own uniforms bearing their team or school name in order to join the tournament. Basketball fans, especially Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) enthusiasts, should not miss out on the last day of the tournament as some of PBA’s Legends will be holding a press conference at 10.30am at The Airport Mall.

PBA Legends are retired association players that travel around the world to participate in exhibition matches as well as to promote basketball.

Leading the PBA Legends will be Vince “The Prince” Hizon, a previous shooting forward for Ginebra San Miguel who will be making a second appearance in Brunei. Vince’s previous visit to Brunei was back in March as part of The KFC Fitness Zone 3 On 3 Streetball Challenge’s Season 1, 2013’s opening.

Other PBA legends include Noli “The Tank” Locsin, previously a power forward for Ginebra San Miguel, Kenneth “Captain Barbell” Duremdes, previously a shooting forward for Alaska Aces, David “The Flash” Bal Jr, previously point guard for Ginebra San Miguel and Marlou “The Skyscraper” Aquino who previously played as centre for Ginebra San Miguel. Accompanying the PBA Legends to Brunei is also Patricia Hizon, a professional sports commentator, who is also the spouse of Vince Hizon.

The PBA Legends are scheduled for an exhibition game with the Brunei’s National Basketball Team later at 8.30pm, at the Multi Purpose Hall in which KFC’s very own, Erwin Velez , a retired PBA player, will also be participating.

Apart from the basketball tournament and stars, the public can expect the 10-day event to be filled with various activities such as a reptile show, the Cars & Curious, Kingston Ice Cream Eating competition, and the Three Point Shootout to name a few.

For more information on the streetball challenge, interested parties can call Wendy at 8713788 or Jacky at 7182907.
