This was my first time to join a fun run. I have seen most of my friends posting their photos on FB joining this kind of activity all year-round. But, I never really had the guts to try, simply because I’m not athletic. I always doubted my ability if I can make it to the finish line. This year, I decided to have a change of heart since I have been supporting for quite a while the health and wellness campaign of Robinsons Supermarket. And, to further show my support and inspire others to join their advocacy, I registered and took part at the 8th Robinsons’ Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run that happened last July 5, 2015 at Bonficaio Global City grounds.
Health-conscious individuals, including CEOs and celebrities, actively seeking healthier lifestyles ran in pairs. I was supposed to run with my husband. Unfortunately, the designed shirt did not fit him. Haha! So I ended up pairing with my blogger bestie, Michelle of Rockstarmomma blog.
Fit & Fun Buddy Run is keeping with Robinsons Supermarket’s commitment to health & wellness. It aims to empower those who are leading healthy and active lives, and encourage the rest to start healthier days by going on a wellness journey with Robinsons Supermarket.
There were around 4,500 recreational runners took on the 5KM and 10KM run, including triathlete Nikko Huelgas, who recently bagged a gold medal for the sport at the 28th SEA Games. Philippines Volcanoes captain Jake Letts, and celebrities James Reid and Jessy Mendiola were in attendance as well.
Top pair finishers received prizes from Robinsons Supermarket officials, at the end of the run. These were their prizes…. 5K winners won a trip for 2 to Coron, Palawan while 10k winners bagged a trip for 2 to Yangon, Myanmar. 2nd to 5th place finishers received Robinsons Gift Certificates as consolation prizes.
Special awards from event sponsors were also given away. Outstanding pairs were awarded the following: Close-up Couple award, Rexona Do More Buddies, Breeze Sige Mom-child Tandem, Nestle Best Shape-up Buddies, Milo Energy & Milo R2 Twin Buddies, and the Johnson & Johnson Active Fresh Award.
Thank you Robinsons Supermarket on your commitment to help more Filipinos make healthier choices by being the convenient avenue for their health and wellness needs. Let Robinsons Supermarket be the guide in this journey to wellness by being part of the #ILoveWellness campaign.
