SEA Games volunteers lauded

The Philippine South East Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) Chief Operating Officer Ramon Suzara asserted the volunteers serve as “backbone” of the Philippine hosting of the SEA Games. 

“Whatever we have been doing in PHISGOC for the last few years will be meaningless without you. If we don’t have any of you, then we won’t be able to deliver the best SEA Games. And with this, you are part our family, our SEA Games family.” 

This is the inspiring  message expressed by the PHISGOC COO as he welcomed the participating volunteers in the  Subic-Clark Cluster Launch of the SEA games Volunteers Program. 

PHISGOC Chief Operating Officer Ramon Suzara assured the volunteers who joined the Subic-Clark launch that this will be a memorable experience for everyone noting that the Philippines is staging the biggest and best SEA games ever. 

Suzara stressed that preparations for the SEA games is in full swing. It is “all systems go” especially with the support of partner institutions and thousands of volunteers, with 99 days to go before the biennial sports event.
