Hidilyn Diaz donates weightlifting equipment to Cebu gyms


November 2 ------ HIDILYN Diaz completed her distribution of weightlifting equipment, this time with the beneficiaries based in Cebu province.


Diaz donated equipment to the Sisters of Mary Boys Town, Consolaction Weightlifting Gym, University of Cebu, and the Carreta Weightlifting Gym as part of the third and final phase of her donation in different parts of the country. Diaz had previously donated equipment to the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the local government units in Metro Manila and Luzon last month. “Nakumpleto namin ang Phase 3 ng #TeamHD grassroots initiative sa Cebu. Lubos kaming nagpapasalamat sa mga sumusuporta at patuloy na naniniwala sa aming misyon,” said Diaz, who donated the equipment roughly 600 days before the 2024 Paris Olympics.


Diaz was able to fly the equipment to Cebu with the help of AirAsia, with Mazda Cebu transporting it by land from the airport to Talisay, Consolacion, Carreta, and UC. SpartPH also supported Diaz with the purchase of the equipment from Diaz’s incentives and financial rewards after her stint in the Tokyo Olympics. “Para makapagbigay kami ng medyo marami-ramimg equipment sa weightlifting community. Kagaya ng pagkapanalo ko sa Tokyo Olympics, kailangan ng team para magawa ito, at kung hindi sa kanilang lahat hindi natin ito magagawa,” Diaz said.


“Masaya ako na umabot na tayo sa Phase 3. Dahil ito sa tulong ng coach/husband ko na si Julius Irvin Hikaru T. Naranjo na gumagabay at sumusuporta sa lahat ng programa na ginagawa niya sa akin sa training at sa aming pangarap na makilala pa ang weightlifting a Pilipinas,” Diaz said.
