Following the suspension of multiple sporting events due to the coronavirus pandemic, many athletes have put their training on hold to start using their free time and resources to help those affected by the crisis. While many have used their influence to encourage donations and inspired more people to help out, Hidilyn Diaz took to her online platforms and made an initiative in honor of social distancing. 

Aside from weights, the Olympic and SEA Games medalist is lifting spirits by setting up a donation drive through an online weightlifting seminar. Diaz took to Instagram to announce that she’s raising funds for assembling food packages

Weightlifting enthusiasts, fans of the athlete and anyone who wants to help those in need can register through this link. To participate, you just need to sign up, give a donation and attend the seminar which will be conducted on Apr. 12, Sunday at 9am via Zoom.

As of Apr. 7, there have been 3,764 coronavirus cases reported in the country.
