Pacquiao’s support for city’s gym sought

THE Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) passed on February 1 a resolution requesting Senator Manny Pacquiao to the city government help build a first gymnasium for the city’s young athletes.

Once completed, the resolution promised to name it ‘Manny Pacquiao Gymnasium’.

Councilor Alvin T. Coquia, author of the resolution, noted that while the city is the center of trade, commerce and industry, educational and health institutions as well as huge business establishments, the city, however, is still without a a gymnasium where the city’s athletes can train to excel in sports.

The SP said it believes that only through the benevolence and passion of the senator in sports that will help realize the city’s dream for a modern gymnasium. (CIO/JCB)
