Rotary Club of Bacolod South: Making a Difference Through Sports

The Four-Way Test

I remember it clearly when I was still in elementary and even up to my high school years, I always see “The Four-Way Test” posted along the highway. I never knew what it really meant until I reached far into my adulting years. It stood out clearly and it made me ponder many times.

The Four-Way Test was created by Herbert J. Taylor in the 1930s and was later adopted by the Rotary. Since then, this has been the guiding principles of all Rotarians worldwide.

With this guiding principle, members of Rotary International around the world are making a difference in every community that they serve. They strive to stay in the light of the truth that will be fair to everyone. They build goodwill and better friendships not only within their organization but as well as the community they belong. They make sure that everything will be beneficial for those who are concerned with the project at hand.

Rotary Club of Bacolod South

No wonder that the Rotarians I know like those from Rotary Club of Bacolod South are very active in their community. They have successfully launched and completed many projects this year. One of those is the Football Challenge 2017 in partnership with RAMS FC and UNO-R which they sponsored earlier this year.

The project was in line with the Rotary Club of Bacolod South‘s advocacy in promoting and developing excellence both in academics and sports among the youth in the region.

The Football Challenge was a successful project that the Rotary Club of Bacolod South promises to invite more teams next time. They want to promote sports to the youth. As for me, I think this project was awesome especially the declining rate of physical activities for our youth due to the advent of technology.

The 1st Recoletos Football Challenge Champion was UNO-Recoletos High School Booters. They won against Bago FC.

I commend President Elena Gatanela and all the members of Rotary Club of Bacolod South for doing this. Congratulations and hope to see the next Football Challenge in person! Kudos to all and mabuhay!

Make a Difference

I am not a Rotarian, but I stand in agreement with their goal to make a difference. We don’t really need to do big things to change or contribute to the world, but we can do small things that make a difference in the community where we are. Big things start with small steps.

“Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.”

  1. Great avenue for the Rotarians to show the young ones how to make a difference. It’s amazing how the Rotary club have grown over the years. May they continue to give back to the society and inspire more people especially the young ones to make a difference and give back.
