The spirited afternoon left a meaningful impression on the P&G staffers – many have expressed their desire to be further involved with Special Olympics Singapore’s activities, and have shared their positive experience with other colleagues and friends.
For P&G Brand Manager Vineet Kumar who played basketball with the athletes, the afternoon reminded him the purity of the game, giving him a new appreciation of it.
“Basketball is a game I have loved to play ever since I was in high school. I was so passionate about it because it had loads of aggression, needed a whole lot of teamwork, coordination and quite frankly made you look ultra cool among your peers. A couple of years back I had a torn ligament in my knee, which is quite common among people who play this sport regularly. However, since the corrective surgery, I never really got back to the game for fear of tearing it again. And my love for basketball faded slowly, until I did not miss it as much anymore.
