Why can’t HEALTH and WELLNESS be a passion?

It’s true that we only get more concerned about wellness when sickness takes over our bodies.  And it’s an irony that we work ourselves to exhaustion for the money and prestige, only to wake up one morning to find out our health is already on the line.

Sure we love to run and we get excited by the competition that racing provides, but we can up the notch and become role models of health and wellness in real life.

Once in a while there comes a race that puts skills and agility to the test, reminding you that fitness and health come from within, the beautiful coordination of muscles and bones forming your body and core strength.

Definitely not your ordinary kind of fun obstacle course, “Awareness for Wellness: Speed Bump Obstacle Race” will commence in the morning of March 25, 2018 at the Amoranto Stadium in Quezon City.

Over 10 various types of obstacles (SPEED BUMPS) will be spread all over the venue as participants have signed up to do either two or four kilometers of running. Part of the proceeds will go to the Hope For Lupus Foundation.

Faith, Hope and Charity: Ma-Tibay Miles for an Angel

ATRESIA, as defined in medicine.net, is absence or closure of a normal opening, or failure of a structure to be tubular. In the case of biliary atresia, the bile from the liver cannot be removed by the body, which means wastes and toxins are retained, leading to fatal cirrhosis and multiple organ failure.

Imagine biliary atresia as a rare birth defect with a likely prognosis of liver cirrhosis and even death, and the only medical intervention with any success rate possible is a liver transplant.

Now, imagine an angel nicknamed “Baby Tibay”, born 2015 and has since been fighting biliary atresia. Empathize as parents not having the means to alleviate Bay Tibay’s suffering with an immediate operation that will cost a whooping Php 4.5million. Close your eyes and remember how you raised your children or how you were raised as a kid — free from disease, and having a full life ahead of you. Is there any way we can all pitch in to save a life and… more?




Let’s give Baby Tibay and his parents the gift of FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE by helping raise funds for this life-saving liver transplant. Through the auspices of the Pinoy Aspiring Runners (PAR) a benefit funrun will be staged on Baby Tibay’s 2nd birthday on April 9, 2017, convening at Plaza Burgos in Guagua, Pampanga.
