Juan, Javi Gomez de Liano and the rest of the UP Fighting Maroons dropped their Katipunan Rivalry for a day to visit the Philippine Heart Center in Quezon City with Ateneo Blue Eagle Isaac Go.
In an Instagram post by the UP men's basketball team, the UAAP cagers were shown a blast in sharing some love to the pedia heart patients.
BIGGER THAN BASKETBALL It's the most wonderful time of the year and the UP Fighting Maroons are giving back. Proving that they've got the same amount of heart both on and off the court, some of our boys went out to the Philippine Heart Center for a yearly gift-giving tradition to spread Christmas cheer to those who need it the most. Jarrell Lim, Bright Akhuetie, Janjan Jaboneta, Javi and Juan Gomez de Liaño all took time out from their busy holiday schedules to warm the hearts of pedia heart patients this Christmas. Joining the Fighting Maroons was back-to-back champion Isaac Go of the Ateneo Blue Eagles who proved that he was truly a man for others. A big shoutout to these young student-athletes who touch the lives of their communities even without a basketball in their hands. #OneBigUPFight
Joining Go and the Gomez de Liano brothers were UAAP season 81 MVP Bright Akhuetie, Jarrell Lim and Janjan Jaboneta as they team up for something even bigger than basketball.
Their heartwarming gesture came over a week after Ateneo and UP squared off in the UAAP season 81 men's basketball Finals.
