In its commitment to nation-building and supporting local communities, Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank) proudly joins the Harley Owners Group (HOG) Manila Chapter Philippines as a platinum sponsor for this year’s “PH Ride with Purpose.” The event, held at the Subic Bay Freeport on June 24th and 25th, marks the 10th anniversary of the HOG Manila Chapter.
“PH Ride with Purpose” unites recreational riders nationwide, fostering camaraderie and strengthening social connections while championing local tourism, community empowerment, and environmental protection. These values align perfectly with UnionBank’s ongoing efforts for the greater good, making the Bank a proud supporter of this initiative.
This year’s event aims to promote Subic Bay Freeport as a premier motorcycle tourist destination, generating a positive impact on the local economy. Attendees will experience the exhilarating “ride and live free lifestyle” through exciting activities such as motorcycle test rides, bike washes, and safe riding skills training. These activities not only highlight the diverse tourism areas and local delicacies in the vicinity but also showcase UnionBank’s commitment to enhancing the overall event experience.
“We’re really grateful to UnionBank for trusting HOG Manila as a partner to share our vision and to help in nation building. By supporting us on this event, they are also helping our eco-park and many of our other social responsibility projects,” said HOG Manila Chapter President and Director Yen Roxas, “Hopefully, this is a good start for us, especially since we are both aligned in our vision.”
Riders from all backgrounds are welcome to join the two-day event, which includes live performances by legendary Philippine hard rock bands, The Breed and Razorback with Basti Artadi, as well as sets by DJ Bia, which promises to keep the energy high throughout the event.
Proceeds from the event will support HOG Manila Chapter’s social responsibility projects, including the Daang Kalikasan Eco-Park. This co-development initiative with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources aims to enhance the five-hectare National Greening Program plantation in Barangay Muelang, Mangatarem, Pangasinan, by planting and nurturing trees. UnionBank’s event sponsorship underscores its commitment to environmental sustainability and community development.

UnionBank recognizes the importance of these initiatives and is honored to collaborate with HOG Manila in driving positive change for the nation.
