Sogo Group of Hotels has donated several outdoor exercise equipment to UP Diliman as part of their corporate social responsibility program.
According to a post on UP Diliman’s official website, Sogo chairman Ignacio B. Gimenez said, “(the donation was done) because we know that there are a lot of people exercising here. A few of us [from the Sogo group] are from UP. It was something that we really wanted and we’re happy na natuloy.” Gimenez is a graduate of the College of Home Economics.”
At present, 40 units of exercise equipment are being set up in various locations in UP Diliman to encourage students, faculty, and staff to be active and stay fit. Among these equipment, 13 units are now installed at the Department of Military Science and Tactics Complex and the College of Science Complex. These units are arm push-up, elliptical machine, single seesaw, and double seesaw.
Other exercise equipment will be installed at the children’s playground near the PAUW-UP Child Study Center, the College of Human Kinetics-Multi Purpose Training Park, and near dorms.
The donation agreement was signed on Dec. 11, 2015 at Quezon Hall.
