DAVAO CITY — Around 200 young children participated in the 3rd Children’s Games at the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish at Central Park in Bangkal, this city, on Sunday.
Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Chairman William “Butch” Ramirez said it was his first time to join the parade since the Children's Games was revived in May 2017.
"This is my first time to march after all several Children's Games we conducted for about 18,000 kids, we already lost count because I'm also from here and I just live nearby," Ramirez said.
He thanked Fr. Toto Espana for caring for the welfare of the youth.
He then told young participants that the Children's Games is for everybody -- rich or poor.
"There's no native, Christians nor Muslims since we are all Filipinos, we are one," he added.
In his interaction with the children, Ramirez encouraged them to make new friends among them. The children played different traditional games during the one-day event. (PNA)
