Military personnel are always associated with peace and order concerns, counter-insurgency and terrorism operations and the likes. But during Miss Earth Philippines 2016 Sports Fest held at AFP Wellness Gym on June 03, 2016, the public got a glimpse of the of the lighter side of our strong Armed Forces.
Together with the candidates of Miss Earth 2016, the AFPEBSO scholars and Teach Peace Build Peace Movers, the soldiers gamely played fun games that resulted in more vibrant friendship and camaraderie among all stakeholders. It also let the people see that the strong military personnel keep themselves healthy and fit, capable of protecting our sovereign and people.
Three games were prepared, with each team consisting of Miss Earth candidates, AFPEBSO Scholars, Teach Peace Build Peace Movers and soldiers. The games were AFPTR Relay, Modified Obstacle Course and Extreme Volleyball. The games were modified in consideration with the nearing coronation night of the ladies and the capability of the youth scholars and movers.
The Sports Fest was facilitated by 7th Civil Relations Group, Civil Relations Service, Armed Forces of the Philippines under the theme “…..enhancing camaraderie amongst peace and environmental preservation advocates”.
