Children today are faced with numerous barriers that hinder them from engaging into sports such as digital distractions, lack of safe play places, and fear of trying. MILO’s annual summer clinic seeks to address these challenges by highlighting sports as a means not only to get kids active, but also to teach valuable life lessons one can learn outside the classroom.
MILO Summer Sports Clinics 2019 "Get Your Child Into Sports" campaign aims to reinforce the importance of sports in a child’s holistic development. Launched last Feb 7 at KidZania Manila, MILO’s yearly program continues to offer a wide array of sports activities that kids can participate in throughout the summer.
