1.4 Million Support For The Dragon Boat Warriors

House Deputy Speaker Raul Daza handed P1.4 million for the support of the Philippine Dragon Boat Federation (PDBF) who were visitors at the House of Representative yesterday.

The reward came from the own expenses of the Congress that agrees to give P5,000 each for the Dragon Warriors who gain pride and honor to our country.

The PDBF gained five (5) gold and two (2) silver medals at the 10th International Dragon Boat Federation World Championships in Tampa Florida.

"Aside from the tough competition, the PDBF team also faced shortage in funds for training, plane tickets and accommodation. The PDBF team's dedication is really admirable, winning despite all the hardships they faced," Bacolod City Rep. Anthony Rolando "Doc Tony" T. Golez Jr.

Rep. Golez is one of the congressman that pushes the resolution to give credits to the Dragon Boat Team.

PDBF President Marcia Cristobal gave thanks to the financial support of the congress.
