About the Orphanage

11081668_1071702699512674_1295204271_n

St. Rita Orphanage is located in Paranaque City. It was originally known as HOME OF CHILDREN, has its beginning when the late Mother Carmen Alba, A.R., Superior general of the Congregation of the Augustinian Recollect sisters, conceived the idea of putting up a home for the less fortunate children: the orphans, abandoned and neglected children— that they would be given their basic need (food, clothing, shelter) as well as proper guidance and sufficient preparation for a better future in life.  Saint Rita Orphanage envisions the total development of the less fortunate/abandoned children that they become God- fearing and responsible members of the Church and the country.

The Congregation of the Augustinian Recollect Sisters takes care of the children in the orphanage as one of its apostolic works. They continue to respond to the needs of the Church and the country within the limits of its capacity and according to its resources.
The Orphanage, aside from donations, mainly gets their resources from the school (St. Rita College). The school closed in 2010 due to losses suffered since the 90’s.

Currently, the orphanage houses 25 abandoned kids (15 infants and 10 toddlers). There are also 3 children who need special care (2 with Cerebral Palsy and 1 with Hydrocephalus), these kids are undergoing therapy twice a week and are very costly. Aside from the therapy expense they are also shouldering the salary of their staff (Caregivers, Security Guard, Maintenance, etc.).

The Orphanage really needs our help. These kids need our help. Please help us, help them.

Four races are lined up for 2015— two aquathlons and two triathlons. The next races will be the Alaska IronKids Aquathlon Apr. 19 at The Village Sports Club; the Alaska IronKids Aquathlon in Subic Bay; and the Alaska IronKids Triathlon Aug. 1 in Cebu.

The races will have three categories: Race Category (with Podium Medals) with four age groups; Play Category (with finisher’s medal but no age categories) with short and long distances to promote outdoor play and increase participation for non-competitive participants; and the Relay Category (with Podium Medals) with two mixed age groups.

Alaska Milk Corporation President/CEO Wilfred Steven Uytengsu said he is ecstatic with the huge turnout.

“It’s really nice to see the parents supporting their kids promoting a healthy lifestyle, a lot of kids today spend a lot of time on their iPads or playstations. It’s important to develop your technical skills but you also have to be physically fit,” said Uytengsu.

Alaska IronKids Philippines is an annual sporting event that aims to promote the healthy and active lifestyle among children through the winning combination of proper nutrition and physical activity. The Alaska IronKids Race Series is just one of many sports development programs that Alaska conducts yearly to engage children to come out and play.

Pioneering athletic programs like the Alaska IronKids Philippines Triathlon has managed to take children away from their video game consoles, cellphones and cable TV remotes and out into the sun to swim, bike and run in triathlon races. Alaska’s sports programs hope to encourage children to get into organized sports while learning positive values like hard work, discipline, determination and teamwork. The program for 2015 will continue to bring excitement as it helps future athletes realize their dreams.

Become an inspiring athlete too and join Alaska’s sports programs now! NUTRITION. ACTION. CHAMPION.

Endless fun under the Philippine Sun

derm plus poster

     Summer is coming and everyone loves a little fun under the sun.  It’s the perfect moment for spending with your friends, family and love ones.  Summer season also means more sun exposure and also means subjecting yourself to sun damage.  As a runner, I cannot avoid sun exposure, especially during a marathon race.  Runners cannot avoid the sun.  Unlike other runners who can run all covered up with compression leggings, compression sleeves and other cover ups, I am comfortable with running short, halter top and a sun visor.  That’s why sun protection is a must for me during running.  Too much sun exposure is harmful to our skin but we cannot avoid them, so might as well be protected.

Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock is the answer to your skin problems this summer. It is formulated with unbeatable UVA and UVB filters to protect your skin in the harsh ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Dermplus sunblock physically blocks and reflects light and it also helps heal skin damage caused by over-exposure to the sun.  Dermplus Sunblock is available in different SPFs like SPF 24 that is recommended for morena skin and for indoor use, SPF 35 for fair skin and SPF 80 and 130 for extreme outdoor activities. Use Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock and worry no more about the harmful Ultra Violet A (UVA) and Ultra Violet B (UVB) rays. Whether you will spend your summer in Boracay, Cebu, Palawan or in Bohol, never forget your number one sun defense partner. Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock is also trusted by Emilio “Chieffy” Caligdong, a professional football player and the former team captain of the National Football Team.

My Pacer Duty Adventure

wpid-img_20150308_102247.jpg

     I never thought that one day I would be running the Run United race as a pacer. I have joined the Run United Trilogies since 2012 and all of them gave me good memories.  My first 21k and first 42k were both done at RUPM.  Last year, I’ve got a new PR for my 42K at RUPM and now, I am a pacer for the 21K category at 2:37 time.

I ran 9 half marathons, two 25K, one 32K, 4 full marathons and a 50k but this 21k race really gave me butterflies in my stomach.  It’s like what I felt for my first 42K and 50K.  I had a lot of things/concerns in my mind like “what if I got leg cramps”, “what if I cannot sustain the 7:30 pace”, “what if our lead pacer and my co-pacers are too fast”, “what should I do if I will be left out”.  So many “what if’s” crossed my mind, but luckily, my pace group made it easy for me.

the 2:37 pace group, Wilbert, Jeff Lo (lead pacer), Franc and me

    Before the gun start, our lead pacer, sir Jeff Lo conceptualized our strategy:  run at 7 to 7:30 mins/km, run half the uphill, then walk the other half, run faster towards the hydration station then run together again.  For the first 16K we are one pack, but one runner approached me and told me that he is having pain along his right side but he still want to run with our group.  I told him to take a deep breath and then we ran a little bit slower for a few meters until the pain subside.   At the last 2k, my co-pacer Franc felt that the runners are a little bit out of breath, so he decided that we can do run-walk strategy:  run 4 mins, then walk for 1 minute.  At the last 1 km, we did 2-minute run, 1 minute walk for a pace of 6min/km.

 Last 3K, along the Macapagal boulevard

     I was amazed how the runners cooperate with us despite of the pain and hardships they’re experiencing that time.  I admire their perseverance to reach our goal.  One runner, Erlie Vitor, told me that she will run with us only up to the 10k mark, but crossed the finish line with our target time.  She told us “Kaya ko  pala ‘yun, ang galing n’yo. Thank you talaga.”  We reached the finish line tired and out of breath but with a wide smile.  Despite of the pain and hardships that we pacers endure,  when we saw their smile in their faces and heard their overwhelming appreciation, it really melts our hearts.

The Run United 1 pacers

     Thank you Unilab Active Health for giving me this such wonderful experience.  It will be added to my Run United precious moments.  Thank you for giving me a chance to help runners “EXCEED THEMSELVES” as I also “EXCEED MYSELF”.

We also would like to thank the runners in our pace group, we had so much fun running and chatting with you guys.  We are so proud of you.  Bravo! Until next run, see you on the road.
