After the Typhoon Yolanda hit the Philippines, a group of chefs from Manila did their own act of volunteerism by doing what they do best – to cook. The group went to Tacloban and Leyte and embarked on a feeding program where they are able to feed around 3,000 survivors every day for a certain period, of course not without the help of sponsors and well-meaning donors.

Now almost one year has passed and much help is still welcomed for the people of Tacloban and Leyte. These good-hearted chefs again would like to be able to provide help but hopefully on a larger scale. This time, they are encouraging the public to join them in making sure their objective is achieved.

There is not much expected from us, just a participation on a fun run that they will be holding will be enough. You see folks, proceeds to this run will be directed towards the support of the Livelihood and Uplifting Program of Tacloban City. Read on the details and see that it is not yet too late to be able to lend some help to our kababayans in Tacloban.

The Pink Run 2014

The Pink Run 2014 will be on October 5 at the Venice Pizza in McKinley Hill, Taguig City and is meant to raise awareness and gather funds for breast cancer research and treatment. This advocacy of the PSGS receives a much-needed boost this year as top athletic performance brand Under Armour joins the cause.

Together with the presentation of the running event to the members of media, Under Armour’s “I Will What I Want” women’s campaign has been launched together with pretty campaign ambassadors, Mia Cabalfin, Natasha Alquiros and Gretchen Ho among others. “I Will What I Want” is a movement that pushes forward a new standard of beauty that goes beyond face value – a standard that regards a woman for her strength, tenacity and toughness amid insurmountable odds. Perfect description fit for those who are fighting against breast cancer.

As Under Armour’s campaign and PSGS’ advocacy comes to perfect alignment, UA is out to provide full backing to the running event which is open to both male and female of all ages. Apart from this, UA will donate 10% of all their sales from the Under Armour Power in Pink women’s performance line to the PSGS.

Press Release:

Passion & Power in Pink Campaign

Passion & Power in  Pink was the theme yesterday as we gathered the Women of will of Under Armour and the PSGS Phil Society of General Surgeons in taking the lead to support the advocacy on D’feeting breast Cancer with the annual PINK RUN, coming up this Oct 5 at Mckinley La Piaza.The press con event was hosted by our very own ambassador Mia Cabalfin and PSGS officer Dr. Saifu. Our ambassadors, Elle Ada, Natasha Alquiros and Gretchen Ho, showed their support to the advocacy as they also shared some personal message about being a UA ambassador as well supporting the women’s advocacy of the brand such as the Pink Run campaign.

Jeremy talks about the support we give to the campaign, and brought in some pink run visors for our ambassadors, and we are able to raffle of a pair of shoes, as we showcase power in pink range, such as the limited edition W Speed Form apollo pink/grey shoes with the pink ribbon logo.

Press people we’re happy to be part of the campaign as they got the first hand info from the doctors and our ambassador.All exclusively received a UA dog tag.

We have some ice breaker activity, wherein each media person was given a symbolic tokens, which is a pink measuring tape. They had fun in getting their waistline size, chest and hips, as we gather the info, we shall track it after 21 days, on October 5,2014 on the run itself they shall be again measured, and the top 10 biggest looser will be rewarded on October 5 with UA Gear and other sponsoring brand.

The pink tape measure symbolises “awareness”as we take the initiative to asses our own physical well being to be fit and healthy not only for ourselves but also for our family.

Such as with the pink run campaign with the objective of creating and raising the awareness on breast cancer, as the ultimate goal of the activity.

More and more publications signify their intentions of supporting this generous and heartwarming campaign.Abs-cbn sports as confirmed earlier will be covering the whole event while Health & Fitness Magazine and Front runner express their intensions of becoming the media partners for the event.

Titan Games 2014

Titan_Log 18x24 (resized)

The Titan Games is the Philippine’s First National Strongman Competition, a multifaceted fitness event that combines physical challenges with a time element. This event is made for every FILIPINO who want to change their lives for the better, through fitness and  health. The Titan Games seek to build TITANS – iron-willed individuals with a strong in mind and body.

This year, Titans will clash in the concrete jungle. Witness steel, wood, and rubber crash against each other as 6 winning individuals take all in this 2 division challenge. On November 09 2014 at The Camp, Taguig, this whole-day event will feature challenges, mini-challenges, and a spectator-friendly event every person can enjoy.

The Titan Games wants every Filipino. We want a Fitter Philippines. But we also want our participants and spectators to have an awesome experience. So we’ve made 2 divisions that are as far apart in difficulty as you can imagine – a beginner’s level, Novice division for the everyday person, and a difficult Advanced division for the serious athlete.

THE NOVICE DIVISION (MORTALS)

This is for the EVERY man and the EVERY woman. This is for those who occasionally exercise, the sports enthusiast, the casual (insert sport here). Whether you play hoops with your friends on the weekend, stretch out and find your center every morning, love bicep curls and dancing, or a walk-a-thon junkie posing as a hardcore commuter, this is YOUR event.

THE ADVANCED DIVISION (TITANS)

An immovable object. An unstoppable force. Many are strong but only a few can be called TITANS. This division will reveal who are worthy of that title. If you’re part of your country’s elite fighting force, an athlete that has been training since Day 001 on Earth, a gym junkie who does not exercise but trains, or want to challenge your human limitations, then we invite you to clash against other TITANS.

CHALLENGES will be FOR TIME,  to finish the required movements  while following the scoring standards in the shortest time possible. There will be 4 main challenges with 5 minute time caps, where all participants can compete. Each challenge has a unique name connoting to the tasks to be accomplished. Only the Top 5 strongest Males and Females in each division will make it to the 5th Challenge, the Clash of the Titans! Winner will be the one with the shortest total time of all 5 challenges!

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be awarded to each top male and female competitor in each division. Prizes from GNC, BeyondRaw, Fit Miss, Ensayo Gym Equipment, Gatorade, Quest Bar, Fitaid, Battle Brew, Progenex, Goat Tape, Brofit and WOD Nation are up for grabs! The advanced division male and female champions will be awarded the 2014 Titan Games – Titan, and they will become GNC’s BeyondRaw and Fit Miss next brand ambassadors!

Rexona Takes Music Powered Run to The Next Level

On October 26, immerse yourself in a trail of pulsating beats and scintillating visuals that will push you to go further into running euphoria at one of the most sought-after runs in the calendar, the Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014.

Taking Rexona’s Do More philosophy to the next level, Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014 will once again challenge you to stretch your limits at a music powered run that pushes you further while you stay fresh. Mar Corazo, Rexona Brand Manager, says, “We are always finding ways to make the Rexona Run more exciting than the last. This year, we wanted to take the Do More philosophy into higher gear with stimulating visuals to match music from different genres, as interpreted by some of Manila’s top DJs.”

This year, Rexona has chosen to collaborate with the Republiq group and the top DJs in the Philippines to fuel your run with live music. Pushing runners to the finish line will be DJs Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Deuce Manila, Martin Pulgar, Euric, Motherbasss, and MC Pao.

To make things even more exciting, Rexona introduces three new tunnels with varying themes that will make the music come to life. At key points during the race, runners will be able to experience the Retro, HipHop and EDM themed tunnels that will have different features, from roller bladders to disco balls, street art to laser light. But of course, only those who can do more can enjoy all three tunnels. 5K and 10k runners will go through two tunnels, while 21k runners will be able to experience all three!

Gun start for 5k is 3:45 AM, 10k 3:30 AM and 21k 3:00 AM. Interested runners can register online at www.runrio.com/rexonarun starting September 8, today, until October 12, 2014. In-store registration will also be available in Toby’s MOA, RUNNR Store or Move in Bonifacio High Street, Toby’s SM North EDSA, The Block and Toby’s Robinsons Galleria starting Friday, September 12 until October 19.

September 16 – October 23. Led by Coach Rio, in collaboration with 360 Club Fitness, the clinics will be twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6-9PM at the Fort.
