The Mat Project for the UP Pep Squad

By Eloi Hernandez

Grace Gregorio and I are spearheading this project so our champion team can train on new mats. Each mat (1mx1m) costs P900+ and the team needs 300 pcs. We are soliciting pledges for the MAT Project. If you want to show your appreciation to the UP Pep Squad, you can certainly express it by making a pledge now.

Thank you!

Please make deposits to Banco de Oro (BDO). Account name UP Varsity Pep Squad, CA #1078012117, Pls take a photo of or scan the deposit slip and email to

Grace Gregorio is the former Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs for UP Diliman. She is an associate professor at the Institute of Chemistry and teaches Spanish also. I am an associate professor at the Department of Art Studies. We are also known as MamG and MamE to a lot of UP varsity kids and UP Pep “mommies.”


The Diliman Diary donated PhP 5000.00 today for new practice mats for the U.P. Pep Squad. Attached is the response of Professor Gregorio. We encourage other interested individuals, including U.P. alumni to do likewise:

Dear Chanda,

I am with the UP Pep Squad right now and Coach Lala thanks Diliman Diary profusely for the generous donation. These mats will not only benefit the present squad but as well as future champions.

Thank you for your very prompt response. This means a lot to the team. More power! UP Fight!

As of September 22, 2011, donations for 277 out of the required  300 mats have been obtained, so additional donations are welcome for that final kick to cross the finish line!


As of September 23, 2011, the entire amount of PhP 300,000.00 has been raised already, but the U.P. Pep Squad has a need for further expenses, so potential donors please contact the contact persons above for more information.
