Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) Manila Run

12 Aug

20130812-200025.jpgAvon invites You to Do Something Beautiful Against Breast Cancer. Register for this year’s Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) Manila Run beginning August 12

Up to this day, breast cancer remains the top killer of Filipino women, creating an urgent call to every individual—not just those afflicted with the disease—to step up and take part in the fight against this life-threatening condition.

Simply knowing such facts does not change things, but concrete action towards better prevention, treatment and support, in whatever form, can go a long way. Avon, the foremost corporate advocate of breast cancer, invites every Filipino to seize the opportunity to do something through the 2013 Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) fundraising event.

Since its Philippine launch in 2002, it has been Avon KGBC’s mission to help provide access to care and support to medically under-served women. This year, the company for women is once again leading the charge to gain further support for the cause by launching the ‘Do Something Beautiful Against Breast Cancer’ Campaign, the idea behind which is simple enough – it speaks to the Filipino’s innate trait of being matulungin or helpful, doing something for someone because you are capable and are willing to help another in need.

GMA 7 star Solenn Heussaff, the cause’s newest ambassador, joins Avon in inviting everyone to concretize their commitment to the fight against breast cancer that culminates with its annual Manila Run Event.

For a registration fee of Php550 for the 5k event and Php700 for the 10k event, individuals will receive the Avon KGBC Race Kit, which already includes a singlet, race number and giveaway. Proceeds from the event, which will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds on October 13, will go to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) Breast Care Center and selected provincial hospitals.

Registration for the Run will be held beginning August 12, 2013 at the following Chris Sports Branches: SM North Edsa; SM Megamall; SM Mall of Asia; Glorietta 3, Makati; Festival Mall, Alabang; and Fitness and Athletics (The Fort).

You can also register online and get more details about the cause at http://www.avon.com.ph or facebook.com/AvonPhilippines, and @AvonPH on Twitter and Instagram.

Get on your mark, and get ready to Do Something Beautiful Against Breast Cancer. Your active participation not only makes you an agent of change, but also translates into a significant contribution towards the fight against breast cancer

a tour, a race, some surprises and big prizes

25 Oct

Last year, they offered us flag football and this year runners who will join the 5K category will run in a special route with “Fun Tasks”. They did not tell us last night at the launch what “Fun Tasks” will be given to runners. I just hope that whoever prepared these tasks do not think that solving quadratic equation is fun. Or worse, we could do such fun things like finding when train x will meet train y given their speed is z. I think I would prefer being tasked to lick my elbow than to do math. :)

But I’m still excited to join the 5K for the extra fun. And yes, doing the task is the perfect excuse to catch my breath and have a bit of rest in between runs.

This race is dubbed, “Ready, Set, Explore!” Are you ready?

Take note ha, BGC, no more na TheFort. They are rebranding na.

Oh and this year’s raffle prize is an Asian Cruise for 2. I was so sure I’d win last year’s raffle…maybe this time, I will win it. I am telling the universe now, can I please win in the raffle. Only BGC runners who finish the race and are present during the raffle draw will qualify for the raffle. So stay, enjoy and wait to hear your name when they raffle off the prizes. Or wait … no go home na after the race agad pala hehehe better chance for me to win.

Registration open until November 18 at Riovana Katipunan and Global City or Toby’s MOA and Trinoma.

Register na and let’s all have a good time!

But wait there’s more …. this fun run is actually just part of a bigger event. On 23-25 November 2012, BGC will be having the PassionFest 2012. Please visit on BGC on these dates for loads of fun and suprises.

RUPM – Ready to run a bit on C5?

25 Oct

In the dim dark past, a race made us run on C5, we came out via BGC and went in via Bayani Rd. The route was “interesting”. The “breeze” from the fast cars and trucks, I could have definitely done without. Let’s just say that I dont think I’ll ever have C5 as part of my favorite race route.

This Sunday, I believe that RUPM runners will have an improved experience of C5.

Runrio said that they have blocked off 2 lanes for runners, 1 lane to screen the runners from the vehicles and left only one lane for motorists. No need to run as well in the service road. Yey! And close coordination with the mayor of Taguig was also completed to further secure this section of the route.

And now fellow runners, they have done their job, we must also be reaponsible. Running 101 okay:

1. Make sure the gear you choose will not only be fierce and fabulous for the photos but should also have reflectorised bits and bobs so that you can easily be seen in the dark.

2. Speaking of dark, if you are not that comfortable with it or worried that some areas that will be dark, consider carrying a flashlight or wearing headlamp.

3. Always be aware of your surroundings.

4. Hydration. If the past you find that they lack water etc bring your own na rin to be sure.

5. Have a funtabulous time!

Oh and one last thing!!!

Coach Rio would like to remind everybody to be on time. 15minutes after gunstart, the ambulance and Runrio vehicles will start. Outrun them! :o)
