PRA lauds NZ Expat Grahame Walton for support ing CDO Rugby 

The Philippine Retirement Authority (PRA) has honoured a Kiwi for supporting the Cagayan de Oro Rugby Football Club.

In a simple ceremony held at the office of Mayor Oscar Moreno's  last 16 September 2019, Ms. Bella Biscocho of the PRA presented a Certificate of Recognition to Mr. Grahame Murray Walton for “his valuable contribution in serving the Filipino people by continuously supporting the Cagayan de Oro Rugby Football Club”.

Mr. Walton, a native of New Zealand and PRA member since 2011, is one of the Club’s strongest supporters and sponsor since it was established in November 2013.

Mr. Noel Villa, Cagayan de Oro Rugby Football Club’s Founder and Coach, also presented a CDO RFC Team Jersey to Mr. Walton for his continuous support and for being one of the founding members of the Club.

According to the PRA, 80-90% of the expat-retirees in Mindanao are living in Cagayan de Oro City. Mr. Walton also urged the expat community to show more support for the Cagayan de Oro Rugby Football Club who not only teaches the sport for free but also assists in various community outreach programs.

Cagayan de Oro Rugby Football Club is the premiere Rugby Club in Northern Mindanao and has been working on spreading and teaching the sport gratis et amore since 2013.

The Club also enjoins private and government schools to avail of its free Get Into Rugby Program, a non-tackle version of the sport designed by World Rugby.

“If you are an individual who would like to learn how to play the sport or if you are a teacher who would like your school to avail of the program and give your students a chance of being selected for next year’s Rugby Tournaments, message us through our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/cdorugbyclub or email at cdorugbyclub@gmail.com,” Coach Noel invited.
