Running Together to Raise NCD Awareness
30 November 2019
In its continuing advocacy to raise awareness about non-communicable diseases (NCD), MDFI levelled up with a fun run at the parking area of the Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna in the early morning hours of Saturday, 30 November. With close to 3,000 registrants, the NCD-awareness activity engaged the participants in 3K- and 6K-runs after a rousing stretching exercise led by Michael David (courtesy of Citibank), who also got the participants to cool down with a series of Zumba moves after the run.
Health treats and services promoting NCD prevention and management awaited the runners compliments of MDFI partners (ATC Healthcare, Bayer Consumer., BellKenz Pharma, Bevi Beauty Elements, Colgate Palmolive, Emibil International, Froneri, Galderma, Getz Bros., Gold River Management, GX International, Health Wellness Lifestyle, Hisamitsu, IMDS Supply Chain Solutions, Inova Pharmaceuticals, IPI, Johnson & Johnson, Leo Pharma, Manila Nature's Link, Macropharma, Maryland Distributors, McGraw Pharma, Metrodrug, MundiPharma, Mylan, Nestle, Otsuka Pharmaceutical, Pascual Consumer Healthcare, Philusa, Procter & Gamble, Reckitt Benckiser, Remed Pharmaceuticals, Ritemed, San Miguel Purefoods, Sanofi Aventis, Symply G, Splash, Terramedic, Unilever, Vida Nutriscience, and Zuellig Pharma).
