When you have the power to influence, inspire others to do good.
That's what Gardo Versoza has been doing since he started his biking group, Cupcake Bikers, in 2015.
His hobby has not only landed him an endorsement, but also formed friendships with the 6,000 members who have been joining his charity rides and supporting his outreach programs.
Most importantly, it has helped sick children, poor families, and students.
On Instagram, he has used this line several times, "Let's have fun, let's help someone."
The group's latest project was distribution of school supplies to a number of students in three schools just before the opening day of classes last June 5.
Gardo's food business has also provided jobs to fellow bikers.
In a previous interview, he said, “May biker group kasi ako na nagbibigay ng tulong sa mga matatanda sa home for the aged.
"Kaya iyong mga bikers na walang work, sila ang pinagdi-deliver ko ng mga order sa akin.
"Ako lang ang nagluluto, kumukuha ako ng mga itik sa Angono. Hindi ko puwedeng ipagkatiwala ito sa iba dahil baka maiba ang lasa.”
And to entice more members to join and support, he has been giving away cupcakes.
The biking group's next basketball tournament will be on June 11, 4 p.m., at Toby’s Arena in Pasig City. Tickets are priced at 100 pesos.
Proceeds will go to the medical treatment of a three-year-old kid who was diagnosed Celebral Palsy Spastic Quadriplegia, which is said to be the most severe type affecting the legs, arms, and body. It actually means “loss of use of the whole body.”
Supporting Gardo's tournament are Jestoni Alarcon and Mikoy Morales, his co-stars in D’Originals.
Gene Padilla, Wowie de Guzman, Jao Mapa, Rob Sy, Joseph Bitangco, Geoff Taylor, and JC Tiuseco will also be joining the ball game for cause.
