FORT BONIFACIO, TAGUIG – The Philippine Army and the MaxForce Shuttlers held a friendly badminton playoffs at the Philippine Army Wellness Center last May 26, 2012.
The open games, dubbed as “Game for a Cause,” aims to strengthen the collaboration between the officers of the Philippine Army and the badminton enthusiasts from Makati City who comprise the MaxForce Shuttlers.
The MaxForce Shuttlers is an open group of badminton enthusiasts established to consolidate a regular badminton practice which was later developed into consistent badminton assemblies. It holds at least two tournaments a year to foster camaraderie and intensify the members’ badminton expertise. It is also involved in charity works.
The playoff between the two groups of badminton aficionados was expected to be the first of the succeeding friendly matches that will not only promote good physical form among the participants but also enhance social responsibility between the uniformed service and civic organizations towards the less privileged groups of the civilian community.
The proceeds of the badminton game was donated to Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines Inc. (OB), a non-profit humanitarian organization that works to fight hunger, disease, unemployment, illiteracy, and abuse by providing short-term medical missions, disaster relief, feeding, and other community development assistance to economically disadvantaged people in the Philippines.
For the past 16 years, OB and the Philippine Army have worked together in organizing various civil-military operations to touch lives, share hope, and put joy in the hearts of our kababayans in the countryside.
