LOOK: Enchong Dee relives swimmer days, gives lessons to indigent kids
Before venturing into acting, Enchong Dee was first known as a swimmer. Now, he has gone back into the water for a good cause.
Dee enjoyed his day with some indigent kids at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex yesterday, March 12. He teamed up with the Bert Lozada Swim School for some swimming lessons for the kids.
He took the opportunity to share his swimming skills with the kids, as he believed “every Filipino should have a basic water safety education.”
The actor appeared extremely happy while he posed with the children in the pool.
Dee hugged the kids and played with them in the water.
He and the kids tried out various strokes and positions in the pool; in one photo, they were shown practicing the glide position.
To end the day on a high note, all the kids posed together with Dee and other instructors for a class photo.
Dee was a decorated swimmer in his college days. During his collegiate career, he bagged three Most Valuable Player titles when he represented De La Salle University. He also represented the Philippines in the Southeast Asian Games and the 2006 Asian Games. JB
