Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3

Nikko Huelgas celebrates birthday by giving back to LPC frontliners

Two-time Southeast Asian Games gold medalist in triathlon Nikko Huelgas celebrated his 29th birthday in a special way.

Last Saturday, Huelgas, who is the chairman of the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) Athletes’ Commission, distributed more than 200 packed Chooks-to-Go meals to the frontliners and the needy in his hometown of Las Piñas City.

Huelgas has been doing this during his birthdays. But this year is extra special for him as there are a lot of people who have struggled to make ends meet during the on-going coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.Chooks-to-Go-Pilipinas-Nikko-Huelgas-29th-birthday-4 Nikko Huelgas celebrates birthday by giving back to LPC frontliners Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 News Triathlon  - philippine sports news

“Lahat tayo apektado ngayong pandemya. Kaya ngayong kaarawan ko, naisipan kong mamahagi ng saya at kalusugan kasama ng Chooks-to-Go,” said Huelgas, a product of De La Salle University.

Early Saturday morning, Huelgas went around town to personally distribute the packed meals and personally thank each frontliners for their service to the country amid this crisis.

And he hopes that this small deed inspires others to continue in giving back to the country — especially to the needy.

“Araw-araw ko silang nakikita na kahit umulan man o umaraw, hindi sila tumitigil sa pagtulong sa amin dito sa Las Piñas. Maliit lang na tulong ito kumpara sa serbisyo na ginagawa nila para sa bayan,” continued Huelgas.

“Salamat sa Chooks-to-Go at kay Boss Ronald Mascariñas sa suporta na binigay niya in this drive.”
