Gabriel’s Symphony Foundation Holds 1st Football Fiesta in Cebu
For 12 years now, Gabriel’s Symphony Foundation (GSF) has passionately pursued its advocacy of making a difference in children’s lives and building grassroots sports programs from the ground up. Sports is a dynamic and inclusive way of motivating children to develop their potential through discipline, teamwork, and perseverance. Through these programs, children learn the fundamentals of the sport and proper skills training, while coaches also pick up proper drills that they can use to train their athletes. These kids can eventually become well-rounded student-athletes who can maximize their talents and athleticism to open up opportunities for a brighter future.
Senator Pia Cayetano founded GSF in memory of her son, Gabriel, who was born with a rare chromosomal disorder and passed away at the tender age of nine months.
GSF has been raising funds through Gabriel’s Symphony, an Annual 12-Hour Multi-Sport Celebration in memory of Gabriel. This fundraising event supplements the Foundation’s various year-round projects for differently-abled and less privileged children, specifically free cleft lip and palate operations and grassroots sports projects.
Throughout the years, Gabriel’s Symphony has become bigger and broader in scope. For the past 11 years, the annual GSF event was held in Manila. To celebrate its 12th year, GSF is flying to Cebu to hold its annual12-Hour Multi-Sport Celebration. As part of this year’s festivities, Gabriel’s Symphony is holding a Football Fiesta in cooperation with Chieffy Caligdong and his advocacy, Football Para sa Bayan. The Football Fiesta will be held at the Abellana Sports Complex, Cebu City, and is fully sanctioned by the Cebu Football Association. It will feature girls’ and boys’ football teams of different age groups from Cebu. True to its grassroots advocacy, Gabriel’s Symphony will also hold a Volleyball Camp with volleyball star Fille Cainglet-Cayetano and a Kids Triathlon Camp with National Triathlon Coach, Melvin Fausto. GSF will also partner with the Cebu City Mayor’s First Mt. Trail Run to Save the Rivers.
On its 12th year, Gabriel’s Symphony looks forward to a joyous and meaningful sport-filled celebration in Cebu!
