Hataw Manolo

Brief Description:

This special project was created to have a more focused and widespread implementation of various sports activities. Outsourcing of important sports gadgets or materials is also part of the project, in fact, a boxing ring is now being owned by the Local Government courtesy of a Board Member who supported the project. Previously, the LGU needs to rent or borrow from other towns whenever a boxing ring is needed. Now, this donated boxing ring is being used in a more extensive search for a Municipal Boxing team. Aside from boxing during Charter and Fiesta celebrations various sports activities like basketball, volleyball, mountain biking, shooting, and local sports are also being held. Most of all, a weekly fitness exercise called “HATAW” was launched starting with the municipal employees and in many barangays to promote a healthy lifestyle. This introduction of HATAW started with a training of trainers who would handle the exercise sessions in the barangays.
