Athlete and Expedition Management
C.O.R.E promotes outdoor sports and manages outdoor athletes to collectively get support from private and public entities. We believe that Filipinos are innately passionate for the outdoors thus the athletes we manage and represent include sports climbers, endurance runners and mountaineers. We are also staunch supporters of Filipino scientists embarking on extraordinary causes.
Acting as a secretariat, C.O.R.E. mobilizes expeditions through fund acquisition and thereby managing the overall organization and logistics involved for each program. C.O.R.E. was at the forefront of two successful expeditions; the first all-Filipino team to summit Mount Everest and the discovery of new bird species in remote Babuyan group of islands.
