While many would wish they are active and healthy, still many are not so happy doing the “works” in order to achieve a fitter, healthier body. But all of the worries, anxiety and hardwork can ease, especially for starters, if you have a buddy with you.
This is the concept that is keeping the Robinsons Supermarket’s Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run for 10 years drawing crowd and success. On its 10th year, the Parade Grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City was filled with mix of regular and first-time runners, all excited to take their morning run with their buddy.
In line with Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness campaign to continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles, the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run gave everyone an opportunity to partner with friends and family, and run together towards the finish line.
“Through the years, the Fit & Fun Buddy Run has been a much-anticipated event for a lot of people. it’s our kick-off as we celebrate with the nation, Wellness and Nutrition month. It provides a fun gateway activity for fitness newbies who are just about to start their wellness journey and loyal runners,” said general manager of Robinsons Supermarket, Mr. Jody Gadia.
Hosted by volleyball superstar and TV personality, Gretchen Ho, together with TV personality Robi Domingo, the event featured exciting booths with lots of freebies from Nestle Philippines, Johnson & Johnson, Fonterra, Unilab and Wyeth Nutrition, Unilever, International Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (IPI), Procter & Gamble, Abbott Nutrition, Getz Bros, Ecossential, Del Monte, Foodsphere Inc., and Philusa.
Coaches Jim and Toni Saret prepped-up the runners with a short work-out and invited them to register on-site for the Fit Filipino 1 Million Pounds National Weight Loss Challenge, the biggest on-ground and online wellness program in the country which aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose weight.
The Fun Run is just one of the programs this July. Robinsons Supermarket is also giving away Healthy You snack platters for a minimum purchase of Php3,000 inclusive of Php 500 worth of participating items of the Wellness Festival.
