For each on-site participant or online engagement (like, share, comment, post), Sun Life commits to donate Php 4,000 to local NGOs across Asia for the renovation of basketball courts and community activities, up to a maximum of Php 40 million.

Through this philanthropic program, Sun Life aims at creating a legacy that will last long after the FIBA World Cup.
