Supporting different advocacies is nothing new to actor Piolo Pascual, who is known to be among the most generous in showbiz. He has recently been championing diabetes awareness among Filipinos, eager to address the rising number of diabetes cases in the Philippines, and, at the same time, promote the importance of staying fit. In line with this, he headlined a two-fold sporting event dubbed SunPiology Duo, hosted by Sun Life Financial Philippines.
The first part, Sun Life Cycle PH, was held in Bonifacio Global City last November 18, 2017, in partnership with Sunrise Events. Piolo, an avid cyclist himself, led fellow enthusiasts to the finish line.
“Paborito kong sport ang bike eh, so to be able to see a lot of enthusiasts and to wake up extra early to race like this… For me, it’s really overwhelming. Besides, we bike for a cause, and that alone, is enough for us to be motivated to race,” he said.
Encouraging more people to get into fitness, while raising funds for institutions like Hebreo 12:1, and the Foundation Institute of Studies for Diabetes Foundation, Inc., the event proved to be a success—with over 1,200 participants, including Kapamilya celebrities!
Here are other ABS-CBN artists who also crossed the finish line:
