Jr. NBA Philippines 2019 is presented by Alaska, which seeks to engage the youth, especially younger kids, in sports. Given the growing issues on health as well as the fast-changing technological environment, which leads to the change in children’s interests and behavior or sedentary lifestyle, the Philippine manufacturer of milk products believes that there is a need to reinforce its thrust in leading a healthy lifestyle not just by drinking milk but also by leading an active lifestyle.
Looking beyond selling milk, Alaska Milk sells nutrition and by doing so, the company along with its brand is doing its part in nation-building. Through youth sports development programs, it is able to help nourish children for them to develop into champions in the field of interest and, in general, in life.
The overall objective of the Alaska Sports is to strengthen the brand’s equity in nutrition through sports. To portray Alaska Fortified as a brand that helps instill the values of determination, discipline, teamwork, and hard work among the youth through sports.
