  • MVP Sports Foundation, PLDT, and Smart-backed athletes are sharing the values they learned from their moms.

    Olympian Hidilyn Diaz shared she learned how to be thrifty from her mother. The weightlifting champ came from a humble family in Zamboanga, but it did not deter her from achieving her goals in life, especially with her parents' constant support.

    Rhea's teammate, Isa Molde, says her mother taught her to value time spent with loved ones and treat people with respect and kindness always.

    “She inspires me to help people who are in need and those who have nothing,” says the former UP Maroon and UAAP Season 78 rookie of the year.

    Another volleyball athlete, Maria Shola Alvarez, shared her mom taught her to love her siblings dearly. “I’m the eldest,” she said. Her mother also instilled in her the values of being independent and being generous to others.

    “We at PLDT, Smart, and MVPSF would like to appreciate the support that comes from our athletes’ families, especially, their moms who encourage them to persevere in their sports careers,” said Jude Turcuato, head of Sports at PLDT and Smart and MVPSF executive director.

    “Their parents and loved ones have been there with us in making sure that our athletes are in the right mindset during their training and competition,” he added.
