Sports personality Gretchen Ho will give away free bikes to 50 deserving people whose livelihoods are affected by the current transportation shutdown.
This initiative is part of the former volleyball player’s Women in Action Project, an initiative that Ho set up during the start of the global pandemic.
The selection of beneficiaries will be closely administered by the team to make sure the aid reaches the right people.
"This took quite some time because we had them shipped from abroad, but I’ve used them and both mountain & folding bikes are of good quality. Special thanks to @specializedqc for helping me procure these," she wrote.
People who are interested to apply can fill up an online form, and tell the team why they need a bike. You can also nominate someone you think needs the two-wheeled help.
The bikes will be distributed after MECQ ends.
Earlier this June, the Ateneo graduate also donated a few bicycles to workers.
After her collegiate volleyball career, Ho now joins multisport events such as duathlon races. She has also become a host and an advocate for fitness, health, and women's empowerment.
