I am a true blue admirer of heartthrob and celebrity superstar Piolo Pascual aka Papa P to a whole lot more. Not only is he popular in the fields of films and television series but thru sports and fitness as well.
Not everyone can balance their showbiz commitments with love to sports like what Piolo does. He holds such recognition on that regard by his peers, colleagues and most of all by his dear family.
Hosted by Len Arboleda of Sun Life Ph and celebrity VJ sought after and super eloquent Robi Domingo, the media conference talked about what was in store for this year's SunPiology series which is turning a decade old and ten years of Piolo Pascual giving back thru sports, fitness and wellness.
SunPIOLOgy which is a charity-sporting event hosted by Sun Life Philippines with major support from its Ambassador, Piolo Pascual; will offer a "TR10" of events to thrill the fans and make them a part of a fundraising for education, diabetes awareness, and to inspire more Filipinos to live healthier lives.
During the SunPIOLOgy Tr10 media launch held at Novotel last September 24, Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Ms. Mylene Lopa explained that they are strengthening Sun Life's message by inspiring more people to "live healthier lives."
"Wellness has been one of our key initiatives for the past years. With our line of new-generation Health and Accident products, Go Well Community event, and partnerships such as SunPIOLOgy, we want to show Filipinos how health and wealth shine brighter together," she added.
The SUNPIOLOGY TR10 will have three events: Sun Cycle Ph on Nov. 17 at Bonifacio Global City, Sun Life Resolution Run and Sun vs. Stars with Star Magic both happening on January 26, 2019, at Camp Aguinaldo.
Teenage rising star singer/actress Kisses Delavin rendered a cool song number off her album in between her taping duties for her new TV series "Playhouse" during the launch.
"I am thankful to Sun Life and Papa P for this opportunity. And my parents are even here with me now. After this po, I will go back to taping." shars the dedicated young girl.
Kisses participated for the first time last year during the bike leg of SunPiology Cycle PH where she rode her first 20KM ride and emerged a proud finisher amidst some minor concerns along the route.
Sun Life Cycle Ph is fuelling up the growing interest of people in biking and its health benefits. Once again, it will take riders around four cities (Taguig, Makati, Manila, and Pasay) in routes fit for beginners and seasoned bikers. Sun Life Cycle Ph organized by Sunrise Events has the following categories:
> Family Ride - 30 mins duration
> Tricycle Ride - 100m and 500m
> Short Ride - 20km
> Long Ride - 40km
Sun Life Ambassadors and cycling enthusiasts, Matteo Guidiccelli, Gerald Anderson, Jake Cuenca are expected to get back on the saddle again at BGC with Piolo on November 17.
During the Q&A portion I was able to personally inquire regarding the Star Magic basketball game which according to Piolo will be a game between some star magic celebs and employees of Sun Life PH happening on same venue while the run is in progress.
However it will be an event not open to the public but thru online or Livestreaming instead.
Awww, I am sure a lot of their fans would want to watch their idols play ball.
Sun Life Resolution Run, on the other hand; has evolved into a regional spectacle with counterparts in different Sun Life Asia territories.
It will also kick off not just in the Philippines but also in different parts of Asia such as Malaysia on January 13, Indonesia on January 20, Hong Kong and in Vietnam on January 27.
Everywhere he goes, Piolo is always trooped and cornered by members of the presss and media to be able to get the latest of his many projects. And when we say "many" it really means a WHOLE LOT of commitments!
How to be you, Papa P ???
The Charity Run in the country will retain its charm of a gunstart by sunset as the country's biggest stars race for beneficiaries of Hebreo Foundation, Institute for Studies on Diabetes Foundation, Nordhoff Foundation, and Star Magic Scholars.
So happy to be covering events of Sun Life PH with Papa Piolo together with other celeb endorsers with these crazy fun blogger friends and associates.
I have been covering SunPiology for the past six years and I can say that this initiative of Piolo and Sun Life Ph has truly gone a looong looong way and has helped a lot of people and scholars thru the years.
I pray this passion project of Papa P goes on for many more years to come!
