More news announcements for company/orgs running Larong Pinoy Olympics will be released in coming weeks.

Last year, over a hundred companies conducted Sports Fests using the games of our heritage as event platform. More and more companies are discovering the fun of Larong Pinoy as a team-bonding activity that strengthens the camaraderie of employees, while instilling the Filipino spirit.



Magna Kultura Foundation has been conducting Larong Pinoy events for companies as 3rd Strategic Option for advocating the Games back in the mainstream of society.  Its 1st strategic option is by conducting  Larong Pinoy Sports Clinics in schools and communities; its 2nd option is implementing Palarong Pinoy tournaments in Barangays and schools.

Conducting Larong Pinoy for offices not only provides the team-building needs of the companies, but revives the fun of the games among adults who use to play it when they where young.  Magna Kutura believes that once adults play it again, they will be able to play it with their children, especially during weekends.

Palarong Pinoy: A Fun Team-Building Sports Fest

Palarong Pinoy: A Fun Team-Building Sports Fest

More and more Filipino corporations are organizing Palarong Pinoy sports fests. Over 100 companies have held Larong Pinoy Corporate Mini-Olympic Events.  Human Resource Managers have testified that a Larong Pinoy even is truly a one-of-kind activity that leave lasting impression on employees, and bring out the best in each and everyone.

Unlike Basketball or any of the usual western sports activities, Larong Pinoy is a game where everybody will be able to easily participate in.  Even employees who don’t want play enjoys the event — cheering, “jeering” and supporting the teams.  Iba ang Larong Pinoy.  Ito ang tunay na Laro nating mga Pinoy.

A Larong Pinoy  company sports fest is both for young and old employees, for male and female, and for everybody who’s every inch a Filipino.

Magna Kultura started advocating Palarong Pinoy company sports fests in 2009 as a way of promoting patriotism among adults in a fun way.  Since then, the word spread that companies could have an alternative sporting event other than the usual western games.  Companies have been requesting Magna Kultura to organize their sports fest not only during summer, but any month of the year.

Magna Kultura organizes the games like a real Olympics with Tournament Systems, Referees, Game Marshals. Employees are grouped into teams with team captains.  And competitions are conducted with matches on Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Jumping Rope, Sipang Bilangan, and various Pinoy Relay Races with timed heats & team scores tabulated.

But what makes it even great is that, everyone who plays the game with their fellow- employees gets the feeling like they are childhood playmates (magkababata).  The activity becomes a unique team-bonding experience.  The experience goes beyond the event as employees cherish the thoughts of the games through-out the year.

To build a corporate family, let employees play like children.  Because employees work hard — let them play hard!  A Sports Fest Team Bonding Activity can be held anytime of the year.  It doesn’t have to be summer.

20 Philippine Hospitals Compete In Larong Pinoy Sports Fest

In celebration of the National Hospital Week last August, twenty (20) Philippine government hospitals will be competing in a Palarong Pinoy Sports Fest at the Marikina Sport Center.

Surgeons, Physicians, Doctors, Nurses, and medical staff will all take time-out to play the games of our heritage — Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Piko, Luksong Lubid, Luksong Tinik, and other Filipino Street Games — and “emergency leave” that will make them re-live their youthful spirits.

A total of 600++ plus medical practitioners participating in the games will be divided into six (6) teams, playing in two divisions.

The Philippine Hospitals that participated in the Palarong Pinoy Mini-Olympics were:

Philippine Orthopedic center


Quirino Memorial Medical Center

Valenzuela Medical Center

Marikina Mayor Del R. De Guzman graced the occasion to greet the medical practitioners commented, “It’s a happy sight to see adults playing the games of our heritage, and doctors and nurses at that”

The National Hospital Week Sports Fest is organized by Magna Kultura Foundation, the chief proponent of the Traditional Filipino Street Games in the Philippines.  Magna Kultura Foundation has been organizing Larong Pinoy in schools, Barangays, and recently, have been conducting mini-Olympics for local corporations.


“It is not true that Larong Pinoy is vanishing in the Philippines”, according to Dickie Aguado, Executive Director of Magna Kultura Foundation, “In fact, a lot of companies have been requesting for us to organize a Pinoy-flavored Olympics for their employees.  They want something new, away from the usual western games; and something “old” like Larong Pinoy, to make them feel young again.”

Contrary to the notion that the Filipino Street Games are no longer played, as some perceives that it has vanished in Philippine society; in urban and rural areas, a great majority of  children still play the games with their neighbourhood friends.

Larong Pinoy is a cultural treasure that is well-accepted by all Filipinos across all ages. The Filipino Games are timeless.  It is still cherished by many, as it is part of our heritage.  Larong Pinoy’s popularity encompasses not only the youth, but adult and elderly generation as well. It’s a timeless cultural treasure.  It promotes fun.  It promotes culture.  It instills patriotism.

Aguado adds, “The Doctors and nurses celebrating the National Hospital Week will surely be having a meaningful bonding experience.  It will make them young again”.

Buhayin Nating Ang Larong Pinoy. Buhayin Natin Ang Diwang Pinoy.
