SunPIOLOGY Run 2015

For seven years, the SunPIOLOGY Run have consistently pushed its mission for a fit and healthy lifestyle. Over the years, many Filipinos are now into the running culture because of SunPIOLOGY’s celebrity presence and the novelty experience to run along with them. These runners who started as “celebrity-fan” runners eventually transformed into serious fitness enthusiasts. I guess that’s one unique factor of Celebrity-filled fun runs. Because it can rally not just Runners but non-runners as well, who are “super Fans” and will brave to run-after their favorite celebs just for a quick selfie. Soon, after several kilometers chasing celebrities, all those running eventually convert them into the mainstream running crowd.

On its seventh year, SunPIOLOGY Run is giving a portion of its proceeds to a special institution that advocates awareness and treatment of a debilitating illness of many Filipinos today. The Institute for Studies on Diabetes Foundation, Inc. (ISDFI) is one of the proponent organization that helps many Filipinos who are currently suffering from Diabetes and to date, there more than four million Filipinos who have contracted by this lifestyle illness. Diabetes is the leading cause of other complications such as Heart Attack, hypertension, stroke, etc. 

In line with its thematic advocacy, The SunPIOLOGY Run will feature some easy obstacles scattered along the race course. These “obstacles” are life-size inflatable tumblers of Junk foods, or symbols of poor healthy living that a runner needs to kick as you pass by them. There are some objects can be kicked as many as he or she wants and the more kicks corresponds to more donation will be given by Sun Life to the ISDFI.  Another feature is the Golden kilometer or the GK which is a one kilometer distance designed for people ages 50 and up. 

SunPIOLOGY Run has always been a fundraising event that benefits foundations and cause oriented groups and improves the lives of many marginalized people in our society. So other than supporting the cause of ISDFI, SunPIOLOGY will also donate some of its proceeds to organizations, HEBREYO Foundation and Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation. The Distances of the race are as follows: 500 meter kids dash (P350), 3k (P700), 5k (P800), and 10k (P900). The running event is a sunset run and it’s on November 28, 2015 (Saturday), at the newly opened Mckinley West of Megaworld Properties.
