Seven out of 295 young basketball players in Baguio City and nearby provinces were selected 15th of March 2015 to join the National Training Camp in Manila on April 11-12, 2015.

The stringent selection process was held in St. Louis University Laboratory High School, Baguio City by Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA evaluation committee headed by PBA legend, Coach Rodney Santos.

Some participants were anxious while some were excited during the registration as well as during the announcement of who will be chosen among the 295 players. It was a surprise also for the coaches that they attracted 24 girl participants to join the selection.

An awesome experience to witness these aspiring kids, some with accompanying parents supporting them, trying to get a slot in a level-up training camp in Manila come next month.

Christine Angela Venterez, 13, of Baguio National High School; Christine Cayabyab, 14, of Judge Jose De Venecia Sr. Memorial National High School, Dagupan City and Rose Marie de los Santos, 13, of St. Albert the Great School, Dagupan City will be the Jr. WNBA representatives for North Luzon in the National Training Camp.

Jr. NBA / Jr. WNBA team from the Philippines joined their foreign counterparts in Beijing last year where they got the chance to watch an NBA game and meet up close some of its celebrity players like Yao Ming.

Alaska is really helping the country grow a nation of champions by providing world-class sports training, as great things were imparted to these young ballers by their coaches. They didn’t just acquired physical skills in the sport, but mentally, the importance of attitude, discipline, sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect were instilled on them.

Go Girl Expo: Empowering Healthy & Active Filipinas

Go Girl May 2015 Rockwell Tent poster

Press Release:

GO GIRL! EXPO: A Pursuit For a Healthy and Active Filipino Women

In a study conducted by World Health Organization, more women in the Philippines are considered inactive whether it is occupational, non-occupational, or leisure-related activities (WHO 2010). The same study also reveals that women are more active in domestic activities than men more than ever. Furthermore, physical inactivity may contribute to coronary diseases, diabetes, and obesity.

This is the reason why Jump Start, Fondo Manila and Yabang Pinoy are working together to bring the very first GO GIRL! EXPO- Empowering Healthy and Active Filipinas. It is by promoting a holistic well-being among women— a healthy and active Filipinas— can we achieve a healthy and active Philippines. We further define a “GO GIRL!” as a well rounded Filipina that balances life, work , play, adventure, sports and more importantly – knows how to have fun.

GO GIRL EXPO will be held on May 30-31, 2015 at Rockwell Tent, Makati City. This event will be a celebration of every Filipina’s pursuits and women’s success and empowerment in different fields. The expo will feature faces of healthy and active Filipinas from different walks of life- from the working Filipina to moms, from outgoing women to social women. Furthermore, the expo will be a collection of products and services from different companies and industries that will cater to the needs of a healthy and active Filipina.

The expo will also be an avenue for women’s inspiration—tapping Filipinas who are considered “Go Girl!”. These women will share their impassioned stories of both success and struggle, how they achieve where they are now, and what keeps them active despite the daily routine this age has offered to them. Their stories will be installed in a gallery wall together with the commitment board that will gather responses from women of different size and age.

Come and be part of this milestone that will encourage Filipinas to shift from ordinary women to GO GIRL!.

Press Release:

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL’S EARTH DAY RUN 2015 EXPECTS LARGEST PARTICIPATION OF 20,000 RUNNERS

Earth Day Run 2015, powered by National Geographic Channel (NGC), will be introducing new and exciting changes to mark its sixth year as one of the biggest running events in the Philippines. With RunRio at the helm, Earth Day Run 2015 is expecting 20,000 runners to participate on April 26, 2015 at the Mall of Asia Open Grounds, with the addition of 5,000 runners for its Baguio leg. Support from the registration of all participants will help raise money for portable solar powered lighting kits that will be sent to communities in Mindoro, a project of NGC’s environmental partner, World Wildlife Fund for Nature.

These portable solar powered lighting kits will provide light and electricity to the Tawbuid Mangyan tribesfolk and Forest Rangers’ camps that are not directly connected to power grids. The lighting kits eliminate the use of highly-flammable kerosene to light up their homes and gives them access to a safe, stable and sustainable energy source that gives more opportunities for community development and advancement.

NGC’s Earth Day Run has consistently helped in promoting sustainable living and supporting environmental advocacy utilizing the popular platform of running in its six years of operation. As a result, participation in Earth Day Run has increased year on year, allowing NGC to contribute significantly to various environmental causes.

Earth Day Run 2015 expects to register 20,000 runners this year, and slots for 5K, 10K, 21K and 42K (Manila leg only) will be open beginning February 23,2015, via online registration at www.runrio.com. On-site registration starts March 16 to April 19 at the Lower Ground Floor, SM Aura Premier BGC.

NGC, together with its partners, aims to raise awareness on the benefits of sustainable energy while ensuring that the events at Earth Day Run 2015 will involve fun celebrations that include races, awards and shows of skill. Besides providing recreation and fitness benefits through Earth Day Run 2015, NGC will also be partnering with its participants to make substantial contributions to the sustainable development of the Tawbuid Mangyan tribesfolk and to provide support to the Mindoro Forest Rangers advocating the preservation of our Tamaraws.
