Ravena, Ayo Initiate Generous Soles ProjectThis young man really is something else, on and off the court. More power to him.
The Ateneo Blue Eagles' talented rookie Kiefer Ravena and Ateneo Golden Knights' Head Basketball coach Noli Ayo took provincial basketball to another level when they collaborated to start the Generous Soles – a project that provides second-hand basketball shoes to collegiate players of Naga City and nearby towns.
In their maiden campaign, the Generous Soles project was able to provide 13 student-athletes with shoes that they can use in their games and practices. Schools that benefitted from this program were the Ateneo de Naga University, Naga College Foundation, Partido State University, University of Nueva Caceres, and Systems Technology Institute-Naga. The initial shoe collection came from former Blue Eagles JC Intal, Larry Fonacier and Paolo Bugia (all current PBA players) and Jimmy Alapag of Talk and Text Texters. Ravena also gave a couple of pairs to the collection.
