Sun Life Financial Philippines' Annual SUNPIOLOGY Run is now SUNPIOLOGY DUO!

Hey guys!

Here's some news for all the fitness enthusiasts out there, especially those who are into running and cycling.

The highly-anticipated annual fun run organized by Sun Life Financial Philippines, will soon cater to both running and cycling enthusiasts, as it evolves into a two-fold event dubbed Sunpiology Duo.  

#SunpiologyDUO will come in two parts: Sun Life Cycle PH @BGC and Sun Life Resolution Run.
Sun Life Cycle PH will take place on November 18, 2017 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Sun Life will be mounting the event in partnership with Sunrise Events, Inc., which is known for its flagship projects that focus on race organization and sports tourism. The contract signing between the two companies was held recently in Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu, with Sun Life CEO and Country Head Riza Mantaring, Sun Life brand ambassador Piolo Pascual, Sunrise Founder Wilfred Uytengsu, and Sunrise General Manager Princess Galura in attendance.
“We recognize cycling’s growing popularity in the Philippines, and this is our share in helping encourage more people to get into the sport,” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said. “Just as it is in our fun run, Sun Life Cycle PH will cater to different ages and will offer different categories.”

Sun Life Cycle PH will have a total of seven categories: Tricycle Ride (100 meters for 2-3 year olds), Kids’ Ride (500 meters for 4-5 year olds), Family Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 year olds with adult companion), Solo Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 years old), Short Distance Ride (20km for 10 years old and above), and Long Distance Ride (40km for 10 years old and above). A charity category called Bid2Bike lets the fans of Piolo Pascual, Matteo Guidicelli, Inigo Pascual, Gerald Anderson, and other Star Magic celebrities, bid for a chance to bike alongside their idols, an exclusive photo souvenir, and have their jersey signed. For cycling enthusiasts, they can bid to ride with legend Robbie McEwen

Meanwhile, the Sun Life Resolution Run will happen on January 20, 2018. As with the previous years, Sun Life will once again mount the event with Run Rio and will offer 3k, 5k, and 10k categories. It features an obstacle course that illustrates the steps to prevent diabetes, like watching what you eat and why exercise is important. More details will be revealed in the coming months, which includes an expanded payment facility like PayPal and DragonPay.  
Interested to do both Sunpiology Duo events? Sign up for Sun Life CyclePH @BGC and get P100 off Sun Life Resolution Run registration fees. Registration for both races is now open at www.sunpiology.com.
Promoting physical fitness, supporting worthwhile causes
Sunpiology Duo will likewise retain its charitable components, where it will continue to raise funds for the different causes it has been supporting for the past seven years. These include the education of scholars from Hebreo 12:1 Foundation and Star Magic’s chosen charities.
Moreover, Sunpiology Duo will continue to be a star-studded happening, with Star Magic celebrities, as well as ambassadors of Sun Life’s wellness community GoWell, expected to participate.
The Sunpiology list of sponsors are also growing every year, staring with the following partners for Sun Life Cycleph @BGC: F2P, Powerade, Rudy Project, Cignal, Philippine Star, 2Go, Alcopllus, and Garmin.
“With Sunpiology Duo, we can now cater to even more Filipinos who are eager to get a boost in their fitness journey and contribute to worthwhile causes while at it,” Lopa said. “It’s surely going to be an exciting event. We look forward to seeing our Sunpiology regulars, and we’re also eager to welcome those who will be joining us for the first time.”

And that's it for today!

Wo-Nut opens 12th store at SM City North Edsa

Hey guys!

Last Saturday, August 26,2017, Wo-Nut opened their 12th store at SM City North Edsa foodcourt. Wo-nut is a unique product concept, and the first of its type here in the country, it's a waffle-donut hybrid, that's why it's called Wonut.

Here's a little history of Wo-nut, according to Sir Resty (President) and Ms.Anj (EVP) of Wo-nut corp, they conceptualized it way back 2014,  but they only started executing the business idea in 2015, now 2 years later they already have 12 existing stores in different key locations around the metro, and their target is to open 16 more before the year ends.

What's special about Wo-nut aside from their unique concept is that all the ingredients that they use are fresh and imported, that's a step up from your basic waffle or donut isn't!? And they don't just offer sweet flavors, they sell some savory wo-nut sandwiches as well.

Here are some pics from the opening of their SM North Edsa foodcourt Store;

Cutie patootie kids cutting the ribbon. :)

Of course a store opening will not be complete without the blessing.

A super fun Wo-nut eating contest for the first few tweens in line.

Look at those excited people waiting for the store to officially open.

They also gave away some free Wo-nuts to a few lucky customers who were at the start of the line.

And last but not the least, a photo of their best seller Wo-nut, Almond White.

And that's it for today!
I hope you guys liked it.

BTW if you want to have your own Wo-nut kiosk, they are looking for potential franchisees and you can have your own for as low as Php188K you can know more by following them on IG:@wonutcorp and fb.com/wonut.corp :)

'till next time!
