Monetary and other gifts have stockpiled since Hidilyn Diaz clinched the country’s first-ever Olympic gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Now, add a Kia Stonic to that list as Kia Philippines and AC Motors announced that they are awarding Diaz in recognition of her historic win.
Ayala Foundation is recognizing Diaz as ‘Atletang Magiting’ after her record-setting run at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Recognizing Diaz under the Maging Magiting program is part of Ayala Foundation’s sustained efforts to promote love of country. Through the Maging Magiting campaign, Ayala Foundation calls on Filipinos to take pride in our heritage and identity, by giving honor to our national emblems such as the flag, while also embodying the call for all of us to be heroes in our own ways.
The Ayala Group’s support for the Olympic gold medalist dates back to 2016 when the Bank of The Philippine Islands (BPI) turned over training equipment for the Hidilyn Diaz Weightlifting Gym in Zamboanga. In 2018, Ayala Land Inc. turned over a check donation to the members of the Samahang Weightlifters ng Pilipinas.
