CORPORATE SPORTS FESTS AS 3RD ADVOCACY STRATEGY
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.
