Eggciting Adventure Family Fun Run Reinforces “One Egg A Day” Consumption Campaign

“An egg a day everyday or itlog lusog everyday, this is my commitment in building a healthy nation of many generations.”

Last November 6, 2016, almost 1500 runners from different parts of the country gathered at SM Mall of Asia by the Bay and participated the first-ever Eggciting Adventure Family Fun Run, a charity run that aimed to fight hunger and stunting in the country. Powered by Guerilla Race, The Philippine Egg Board Association together with The Good Egg by Sarimanok joined forces in encouraging the nation to be an advocate of “one egg a day” everyday for good health.

Egg is an affordable source of nutrition for it has essential nutrients, proteins, vitamins and minerals that is good for overall health. Contrary to popular belief that egg causes heart problem and high cholesterol level,  several studies show that eating an egg everyday does not increase the risk of heart disease. Thus, it has no effect on blood cholesterol level.

The Eggciting Adventure Family Fun Run began with a 10-kilometer run at five in the morning followed by 5K, 3K, 1K and 500-meter dash for children. Every participant was motivated to run as quickly as they can as exciting prizes and freebies awaited them. Also to mention, the golden egg trophies were up for grabs for those who will finish the race in the shortest time possible.

After the run, a zumba presentation led by Nick Manjares of Aero “J” Fitness Club of Santa Rosa, Laguna was conducted. Likewise, there was a samurai demonstration by the Fitness Factory.

Free eggs were distributed for the egg toast ceremony. This ceremony was joined by the following: Mr. Clint Escondo, Vice President of Univet Nutrition and Animal Healthcare Co., (UNAHCO), Ms. Riel Andaluz, Senior Manager for Corporate Partnerships of Save the Children Philippines, Lt. Col. Dennis Bumanglag, Race Director and Head of Guerilla Race,  Mr. Edwin Mapanao, Assistant Vice President of The Good Egg Sarimanok,  Dr.Fe Marie Alejandre-Colico, Poultry Business Unit Head of Sarimanok Poultry Feeds and Ms. Veronica Ramos, Marketing Director, Aldenver Marketing, Inc.

Right after the egg toast ceremony, the heads from different organizations signed their names on the giant egg replica as display of support to this worthwhile endeavor.

Meanwhile, Dr.Fe Marie Alejandre-Colico of Sarimanok led the “egg pledge”. This was organizers’ and participants’  commitment to uphold “one egg a day” advocacy. On the said pledge, they sworn to consume one egg a day everyday to increase daily requirements of essential nutrients, proteins, vitamins and minerals. This commitment will help in keeping away from micronutrient deficiency as well as allevating hunger and malnutrition.

A storytelling session about the benefits of egg to one’s health was done to entertain and educate families especially children participants.

The funds raised in this event will go to Save the Children Philippines and AFP Educational Benefit System Office (AFPEMBSO).

Over 10,000 Runners Rocked The Block At The Music Run™ By Philam Vitality - Manila

An infectious and energetic blend of music filled the atmosphere at McKinley West as over 10,000 participants, a.k.a. Music Runners™ ran, danced and partied at the second edition of The Music Run™ by Philam Vitality. The event, hailed in other countries as the Ultimate 5k Running and Music Festival, returned to Manila bigger and bolder following a smash-hit debut at the Philippine Arena last year.

A phenomenal and futuristic run, The Music Run™ is an award-winning event that offers a unique total music immersion experience and has been making waves all over the world, including multiple sold-out events in Asia this year, and new tour dates announced in India, Europe and South Africa for next year.

The Music Run™ by Philam Vitality started on a high note at the Music Village with a pre-party featuring local alternative soul band Sud, who rocked the crowd with upbeat renditions of their hits ‘How We Play’ and ‘Profanities’. Pre-race energy levels were further pumped up with a mass warm up by Gold’s Gym, the much-loved music and dance infused workout.

Music Runners™ ran, danced and partied across a 5km route comprising of five 1km Music Zones – Rock, Pop, Old School, Hip Hop and Dance. Lined with over 120 concert-quality speakers pumping 150,000 watts of music the entire way, The Music Run™ by Philam Vitality is the world’s loudest 5k fun run. The soundtrack for run was voted for by the participants through a bespoke online music app developed in partnership with Spotify®.

In each of the Music Zones, Music Runners™ were treated to special interactive activities: From cool, cold pyrotechnics in the Philam Asset Management Inc Rock Zone; a tunnel with hanging balls at the BPI-Philam Pop Zone; a stage featuring AirAsia crew lip syncing to the top-voted songs with an electric “Superbowl” performance in the AirAsia Old School Zone with a chance to win exclusive flights and prizes; photo opportunities with graffiti artists, dancers and photo walls in the Hip Hop Zone; to a mobile disco tunnel with glowing lights in the Philam Vitality Dance Zone.

A confetti shower greets the music runners along the Rock Zone.
Presenting Sponsor Philam Life, who recently launched the Philam Vitality Active App, hosted a series of engaging running, swimming, and cycling challenges at their booth. A few lucky Music Runners™ who downloaded the app also walked away with cool prizes such as fitness devices and gym memberships.

“Through The Music Run™, Philam Life offers Filipinos a chance to stay fit while having fun. Last year was a really big success and we were inspired to bring it closer to more runners this year,” said Philam Vitality Deputy Head Kats Cajucom.

“This was made possible with the Philam Vitality program, a first of its kind, full-scale wellness program where members get rewarded for making healthy choices. Through Philam Vitality, we are taking active steps to positively transform the lives of Filipinos by helping them to live longer, healthier and better lives,” she added.

Music Runners™ were also treated to endless music and fitness-inspired entertainment in the Music Village courtesy of event sponsors.
Music runners do a celebratory jump as they enter the run’s final stretch.
Petron hosted five fun and challenging activity stations, which included a 10ft high rock-climbing station, a nine feet high ‘Bungee Fun’ jump, a VJ Booth, a ‘Blaze 100’ Velcro jump wall’ and also PS4 Dance games for participants for all Music Runners™ to enjoy.

At the Alcatel booth’s basketball challenge station, Alcatel phones were given away to the best scorer every hour. Alcatel Shine Lite smartphones featuring remarkable camera qualities were also won by two Music Runners™. The winners wore eye-catching outfits and were best-dressed in the theme “Dare to Shine”.

Other sponsors such as Oakley and Saucony also showcased their latest products at their respective booths and provided Music Runners™ a chance to win exclusive prizes.

To cap off the event was the ultimate music festival that kept the energy high with dancers, laser lights, chill out zones, and fireworks. The party came to a standstill for a short moment when all Music Runners froze in unison as they took on Manila’s biggest mannequin challenge. Shortly after Australian radio house DJ Sam Withers, who was a big hit in last year’s after-run concert, wowed audiences once more with a stunning performance.
A post-run music festival featuring DJ Sam Withers celebrates the end of the run with popular beats and brilliant fireworks.
“The Music Run™ is not just another fun run. It aims to bring our running experiences to new heights of excitement. The Music Run™ first made waves in Asia and now it is sending waves of good vibes in cities around the globe,” said Martin Capstick, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Exceed Sports and Entertainment, event promoter of The Music Run™ in multiple cities in Asia.

“We are really glad to experience the Filipino energy once again. We hope that even after this run, more Filipinos would become inspired to take up healthier ways to have fun,” he added.

Novuhair's Informative Truth On Hair Chemicals

We may not be aware that we are unknowingly putting harmful chemicals on our hair thus resulting to general conditions such as migraine, nausea and skin rashes. The symptoms may be quickly attributed to stress but if you look closer to that hair product you’re using, you’ll be surprise to find the culprit.

Popularity does not equate to safety, some popular brands sold in the market are loaded with mildly toxic chemicals that may be harmful in prolonged use.

Novuhair, Nature’s answer to hair loss, gives you the lowdown on these chemicals to help you with your choices.

Myth: Shampoo must produce lots of lather in order to properly clean your hair. 
Truth: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a compound that helps shampoo and other cleaning product in producing foam and bubbles. Though it may effectively remove hair build-up, it can also strip off essential oils that is needed to keep your hair healthy.

Myth: Parabens has an anti-bacterial compound benefits that outweighs the harm.
Truth: Parabens are basically used to prolong the shelf life of hair and cosmetic products mostly for its antibacterial purpose. Symptoms that are related to over exposure to parabens are Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Further studies also show that use of products with parabens accelerate skin damage and aging related to sun exposure.

Novuhair, nature's answer to hair loss, is made of 19 Natural ingredients for healthier hair and scalp.

Myth: My hair smells terrific! I love the perfume scent on my hair product.
Truth: A nice whiff of perfume might not be harmful but the fragrance that is mixed in your hair product might have come from harmful substances from highly toxic ingredients which can lead to Allergic reactions and mood swings. That perfume is better off somewhere else.

Myth: Hair products that promise straightening and smoothening effect use non-toxic Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a natural preservative.
Truth: Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a substance used in making your hair soft and bouncy, although it is considered natural preservative, also releases formaldehyde which can lead to skin and eye irritations. Prolonged use may also affect your immune system.

Use of some of these chemicals combined may also result to hair loss and other hair problems, thus, it is important to be an informed consumer. A lot of new products have saturated the market hence, read the labels for fine prints before buying.
