St. Luke’s Medical Center calls on the Filipino community to put on their running shoes and step up for their health by joining the St. Luke’s Run for Wellness on December 7, 2013, Saturday, 6 a.m. onwards at the Bonifacio Global City grounds.
Aiming to engage experienced and first-time runners, the young and young-at-heart in a running activity like never before, the Run for Wellness promises to be a creative, non-traditional fun run that combines the exercise of running and fun-filled activities along the race route. It is also St. Luke’s way of promoting disease prevention and overall well-being for the general public.
Among the stations the participants will encounter during the race are: the Water Gun Station where marshalls will spray runners with water along 100 meters; the Color Me Blue Station where blue powder will be thrown as runners dodge their way through the course; and the Air Blower Station where runners will be dried off and blown away as they try to reach the finish line. The fun doesn’t stop as other activities,such as the Giant Slide, Creative Photo Booth, and Balloon Wall await them.
Registrants may choose from the 3K, 5K, and 10K distance race categories all sold at 750 pesos only. Each runner also gets a St. Luke’s Run for Wellness shirt, bib and freebies from participating sponsors. Winners also get Executive Health packages. On top of that, part of the proceeds of the Run for Wellness will go to St. Luke’s Medical Center Foundation, Inc. (SLMCFI), which funds projects that benefit social service patients, provide scholarships for underprivileged medical students, and support continuing medical education for doctors and medical research.
This activity also coincides with the hospital’s celebration of Dr. Joven Cuanang Week, which pays tribute to its Senior Vice President for Medical Practice and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joven R. Cuanang who has dedicated 51 years of service to the medical profession and has significantly been instrumental to the hospital’s success.
