HIDILYN DIAZ and Eumir Felix Marcial are back doing their duties as Philippine Air Force personnel a month after clinching gold and bronze medals at the Tokyo Olympics.

Together with Chooks-to-Go, Diaz, Marcial and members of the Air Force set up a community pantry in  Bagumbayan, Quezon City, on Tuesday and distributed dressed chicken and packed meals to the affected community.

“I feel so happy and blessed that I am doing my share to my fellow Filipinos,” Marcial said. “I get inspired by doing this, not only when I am on the ring fighting.”

Marcial, who thanked Chooks-to-Go President Ronald Mascariñas, can’t help but look back to the time when he and his family in Zamboanga were the ones lining up in pantries just to get by.

“I lined up before, not on the end of the line distributing food items,” said the proud son of Barangay Lunzuran in Zamboanga City. “We lined up for rice when I was young.”

“Now, I am helping my countrymen,” he said. “Nothing is impossible if you work hard and pray to God.”

The Air Force promoted Diaz from Sergeant to Staff Sergeant and Marcial from Airman First Class to Sergeant upon their arrival from the Olympics in July and August, respectively.
