GO GIRL EXPO: In Pursuit of Healthy and Active Filipino Women

IMG_20150502_085143

PRESS RELEASE:

In a study conducted by the World Health Organization, more women in the Philippines are considered inactive whether in occupational, non-occupational or leisure-related activities (WHO 2010).  The same study also reveals that women are more active in domestic activities than men more than ever.  Furthermore, physical inactivity may contribute to coronary disease, diabetes and obesity.

This is the reason why Jump Start, Fondo Manila and Yabang Pinoy are working together to bring the very firs GO GIRL EXPO – Empowering Healthy and Active Filipinas.  It is by promoting holistic well-being among women, healthy and active Filipinas, that we can achieve a healthy and active Philippines.  We further define a “GO GIRL!”  as a well rounded Filipina who balances life, work, play, adventure, sports and more importantly, knows how to have fun.

Go Girl Expo will be held on May 30-31, 2015 at Rockwell Tent, Makati City.  This event will be celebration of every Filipina’s pursuit and women’s success and empowerment in different fields.  The expo will feature faces of healthy and acitivce Filipinas from different walks of life, from the working Filipina to moms, from outgoing women to social women.  Furthermore, the expo will be a collection of products and services from different companies and industries who cater to the needs of a healthy and active Filipina.

The expo will also be an avenue to women’s inspiration, tapping Filipinas who are considered “Go Girl!”.  These women will share their impassioned stories of both success and struggle, how they got to where they are now, and what keeps them active despite the daily routine this age has to offer.  Their stories will be shared via different platforms at the event.

Come and be part of this milestone that will encourage Filipinas to shift from being ordinary women to being a GO GIRL!

My thoughts:

I have been asthmatic all throughout my life with severe skin asthma.  Always bounded between walls of our house.  My mom was so afraid I might get sick.  I was always teased as weak, sickly and lame but that criticism made me strive harder and prove them wrong.  First I joined a 5K run, my guy friends were laughing at me as I thought I was dying due to shortness of breath and exhaustion but that does not stop me.  As they are teasing me “lame”, I am working hard to prove them wrong, that I can do better.  I joined numerous races, from 5k to 10k.  I’ve ran more than ten 21K and five 42K.  Last year, I finished a 51-km Ultramarathon and will eventually joining aquathlon before of this year end.  I never felt so much better than before.  I never felt so much younger than before because running reduces stress and releases happy hormone.

“Running is my passion. I get high when I’m sweaty and tired.  Running full marathon is my party.  Sport drinks are my tequila.”

Jr. NBA/ Jr. WNBA presented by Alaska gathers the country’s best young basketball players

logo 2

     After a nationwide search involving over 100,000 children from all over the country, selected 50 boys and 24 girls participated in the 2015 National Training Camp held last April 24 and 25 at the Philippine International Convention Center and April 26 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

     The training camp was headed by NBA coach Chris Sumner and Lead coach for the Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA Progrram of Alaska Jeff Cariaso.  Chosen boys and girls were trained in the fundamentals of basketball and also learned the importance of the core values of sportsmanship, teamwork, a positive attitude, and respect (STAR).

     The lucky participants got the chance to be coached by NBA stars Nerlens Noel of Philidelphia 76ers and WNBA Legend Ruth Riley who graced the event.

     The final day was opened with an exhibition game from the Alumni of Jr. NBA All-Stars.  They are divided into 2 teams namely Team Riley and Team Nerlens.

     It’s so nice to see the All-Star Alumni grow from an amateur basketball player to a hardcore player.  Take note, most of them are 3-point shooters and some of them can fly!

     After the exhibition, the top 20 boys and top 20 girls show their talent and prove that they too can be named as Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA All-Star.

     And after long and careful deliberation, they come up with 10 boys and 5 girls that ultimately named as Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA Philippine All-Stars.  The well-deserving boys and girls will enjoy the experience of a lifetime with fellow all-stars from Southeast Asia and will travel abroad later in the year to watch an actual National Basketball Association game and meet NBA stars.
