gabriel symphony foundation was put up by senator pia and husband atty. butch in memory of their son gabriel.. gabriel was born with a rare chromosomal disorder called trisomy 13, sufferring with a weak heart, enlarged kidneys, cleft lip, was believed to be partly deaf and blind.. he passed away at nine months of age.
gabriel had all the means to live a comfortable, privileged life, but sadly, his health didn't allow him to. that's why gabriel symphony foundation works to help other children grab the opportunities that gabriel wasn't able to. the foundation helps disabled kids by providing hearing aids, glasses, cleft lip operations, school materials, and other things to help these children get over little obstacles that prevent them from attending school and living a normal life.
last september 10, the foundation held its third annual 12-hour run-walk-bike for a cause, a fundraising event where participants drop by anytime during the day to give their donation, and run, walk, or bike in memory of gabriel.
