During Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, the United States Exathlon commemorates this date with joy and praises the value and contributions of the Latino identity.
Juan Carlos Herrera is the fastest man in Mexico, holding the records of 100 and 200 flat meters. “What makes me most proud of my Hispanic heritage are the family values we have.”
With a big smile, Herrera pointed out that “the customs we handle in Hispanic families are extraordinary, a lot of union, a lot of love and affection”.
These values and traditions described by Herrera are present and are always evident in the teams of The Fiercest Competition on the Planet, as they work together as a family.
Alberto “El Venado” Medina believes that Latino values will help change the world, especially if children learn them.
Medina told Telemundo that we must encourage in children “effort, affection, love and discipline, so the world of our kids may change gradually.” He also heightened the Latino passion to work and live with each these values.
According to Denisse Novoa, also a member of the exathlon team, joy and enthusiasm are a very important part of the Latino identity. “I think we are very jovial people, we are always looking for the party, laughter and joy.”
Anyone who has grown up in a Hispanic roots family understands perfectly what parties, laughter and jokes mean to this culture.
“There’s a Latin hero in my family, and that’s my dad. He came from Mexico, and thanks to him we are all living in the United States,” Denisse says.
Many Latinos have decided to embark on a journey to the United States in search of a better future. And there are not only heroes among them, but also great heroines, like Jasmine Ibarra’s mother.
She expressed with great pride that “my Latino heroine is definitely my mom, she came to the United States with the dream of a better life, and even though she didn’t know the language, she fought for me and my brothers so that we could have the best in life”.
The exathlon team is just one part of the Latinos who celebrate and raise their voices proudly during Hispanic Heritage Month.
Hispanic Media, a company that has consistently been an important part of this event, will also commemorate this important date.
This year, it will feature the Hispanic Heritage Month Gala, a very special gala in which, along with other prestigious partners, it will join to honor five Latin American descendants whose contributions and work have improved the living conditions of many of the immigrants who work and prosper in Philadelphia.
This event is scheduled for Friday, October 18, in an ideal location with a romantic, luxurious and ancestral evocative atmosphere that only the Crystal Tea Room can offer for such an important celebration.
