Maxicare Run: July 9, 2017 at BGC

Maxicare Health Care Corporation has been a by-word in health care services in the Philippines but my knowledge about healthcare providers has been limited until long-time friend, runner and Fitness Coach Ms. Jackie Gutierrez who works for the company enlightened me on its functions and many benefits.

As the leading Health Maintenance Organization in the country, Maxicare provides primary care services to Filipinos that are based on a partnership between the patient/members and the health provider. Their main focus as care service providers are a tool for engaging people to live a healthy lifestyle, according to Jackie. “Our present implementation and account management specialists has now provided access to its services through TeleConsult and TeleMedicine, both of which are 24/7 services, that has allowed our members to access healthcare services anytime, anywhere… where we can show you ways to create an onsite health center that meets your health and wellness objectives”, she said.

Moreover, their medical services focus on preventative care and encourage good lifestyle habits with their patients, contributing to healthier, more fulfilling lives.

To commemorate their 30th Anniversary in the healthcare industry, Maxicare has a running activity lined up, the Maxicare Run 2017 this coming July 9, 2017 at the Bonifacio Glocal City! It features a 16k, 10k, 5k, 3k and a 200 meter run for kids!

Here are the race details:

MAXICARE RUN 2017 A celebration of fitness for 30 strong years in the Healthcare Industry

Makati, Philippines: This year marks a milestone for the entire Maxicare Healthcare Corporation family as they are celebrating their 30th Anniversary!

The past three (3) decades have been truly eventful for Maxicare and all of its Members, Employees, Partners and Providers. Delivery of the finest healthcare services have been made possible thru and for these stakeholders.

What started out as a brainchild of a group of premier doctors and esteemed businessmen with the aim to provide quality health care to the Filipinos, Maxicare Healthcare Corporation has become the consistent leading Health Maintenance Organization* in the country in its 30 years of providing healthcare at its finest. (*According to Business World’s Top 1000 Corporations annual list)

Maxicare continuously exerts effort to offer superior services and tailor fit products at a valuable cost to its members, and has set the standards in the HMO industry. Moreover, Maxicare has been an innovation trailblazer in its industry, ably meeting the evolving needs of its over 1.1 Million customers. It has started to transform the business to a fully digital and IT – enabled enterprise.  There are also the fast ways to secure a Letter of Authorization for their needed medical availments: via the website – based Member Gateway portal, Self – Service Kiosks stationed in some major hospital facilities and Member Account company sites, and the mobile application DocHUGO.

Sustaining trust, ensuring reliability, providing convenience and unceasing innovation are the main thrusts Maxicare upholds in its conquest to deliver its commitment to its members.

Maxicare is truly a leader, not just because of sheer number, but due to the lives it has touched. To put things into perspective, just last year, Maxicare handled four (4) Million availments, 150,000 pediatric cases, 47,000 dengue cases, 133,000 inpatient confinements, 341 angioplasties and related procedures, and has helped augment lives via 147 organ transplants.

To quote Christian Argos, President and CEO of Maxicare Healthcare Corporation, “I am proud of our past, of our history, of our accomplishments and, most definitely, I have confidence in what the future will unfold and that Maxicare Healthcare Corporation will remain the Number One HMO in the Philippines”.

Thus, to commemorate their 30th Anniversary in the healthcare industry, Maxicare has a roster of activities lined up, enjoining all to partake in their achievement. One of the highlighted events is the Maxicare Run 2017 this coming month of July. Maxicare desires to impart that they are with their Members not just when they are sick, more so, they want them to be healthy and live worry – free. As truly, there is no better way to delight in the health of their members other than with a celebration of fitness and wellness.

Heroes For Children Run 2016: September 4, 2016 at MOA

When actress and children’s welfare advocate Anne Curtis started to join UNICEF way back 2009, she saw the very vast scope and challenges that this organization were facing like widespread malnutrition, violence against children, access to school and
basic necessities like water and sanitation.

Since then, she has given a lot of her time and helped financially to help raise awareness and funds so that UNICEF can continue doing what it does best for children — long-term, sustainable solutions that tackle children’s issues at the root causes.

To enable her to reach out and touch people from all walks of life to help children through UNICEF, she organized the Heroes for Children run to raise money for UNICEF’s First 1,000 days program. All the proceeds from this event go to lifesaving programs for children.

Now on its 2nd year, Ms. Curtis says that this run is to empower these impoverished children to have hope, healing, and know that they are being thought of and helped through fund raising programs.

(L-R) Coach Rio Dela Cruz, UNICEF Philippines Country Representative Lotta Sylwander and UNICEF Celebrity Advocate for Children Anne Curtis invite the public to join the Heroes for Children Run on September 4, 2016, Sunday, at the SM Mall of Asia grounds.

Anne Curtis runs for children to mark UNICEF’s 70th Anniversary (PRESS RELEASE)

10 August 2016, Manila, Philippines – UNICEF Celebrity Advocate for Children Anne Curtis calls on runners to join the second year of the Heroes for Children Run on September 4, 2016, Sunday, at the SM Mall of Asia grounds.

“I was deeply inspired by the support we received during last year’s run. From children with disabilities to serious runners, the public came together for a great cause. This year, I’m inviting everyone once again to be a hero for children. All proceeds will benefit UNICEF’s First 1,000 Days campaign for children’s health and nutrition needs,” says Curtis

“For 70 years, UNICEF has worked to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged, vulnerable, and excluded children around the world. Despite the many gains, the lives and futures of millions of children are still in jeopardy. In the Philippines, one out of three children under the age of five suffers from chronic malnutrition—the effects of which can be permanent, irreversible and even fatal after two years of age. UNICEF believes every child should have a fair chance at life,” UNICEF Philippines Country Representative Lotta Sylwander says.

The First 1,000 Days programme focuses on prenatal and early childhood interventions to prevent undernutrition, including quality care for mothers, proper nutrition and complementary feeding, and life-saving treatment for severe acute malnutrition. The effect of good health and nutrition lasts well into adulthood and is key ingredient in breaking the cycle of poverty.

Last year’s run saw more than 3,200 runners raise Php 3 million for the benefit of the First 1,000 Days programme. This year, the event aims to attract more runners to raise funds for the campaign.

“We are grateful for Anne’s dedication and significant contributions in raising awareness and funds for children in need. Anne’s power lies in her sincerity and genuine passion in everything she does. Through her support, we will continue to make a huge difference for children in need,” Sylwander adds.

Fans who want to support Anne but cannot physically run or be present on race day may donate on her personal SimplyGiving fundraising page at http://www.simplygiving.com/event/HeroesforChildrenRun2016.  Ms. Curtis was appointed as UNICEF Celebrity Advocate in November 2014.

Online registration is ongoing at www.runrio.com/HeroesforChildren until 19 August 2016. In-store registration is ongoing until 28 August 2016 at the following Chris Sports outlets: SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM City North Edsa, SM City BF Homes, Glorietta, Market! Market!, Robinsons Place Manila, and UP Town Center (from August 15 to 28). The run is one of many activities slated in 2016 as UNICEF commemorates its 70th year helping to build a better world for every child.

 

Run For Ur Future: August 28, 2016 at MOA (Manila Leg)

Saving and managing your finances now is a major part of building a better life for the future. You may not be able to implement it to the fullest extent right now, but you should know about it and you may be surprised by what it can do for you, and what you can accomplish, if you start now.

When we say “savings”, it is any money you put away for the future, a habit that we should get into while young! Building a culture of saving money while nourishing our careers will allow you to generate funds that will sustain you for the short term and up to your retirement age. Adequate savings gives you the power to withstand an unexpected expense, help you weather financial hardships such as sickness or unemployment, achieve a financial goal like home ownership, and provide funds for your golden years when you retire.

It is through this race that awareness has to be instilled through health and fitness in a sport like running. Race is for the benefit of World Vision and Tahanan ng Pagmamahal.

About World Vision Child Sponsorship

The best way to help a child is to help his community become a better place to grow up in. For a donation of P600 a month, you will help provide children and his community with access to: education, health care, nutritious food, clean water, livelihood opportunities and more.

Child sponsorship ensures that the community will be able to provide children with the basics they need to help them grow up in a healthy environment and have a chance for a better, more sustainable future.

How Child Sponsorship Works

Child sponsorship is an exciting journey of transformation – for the child you’re helping and for you especially if you use all the tools available to help you bond with your sponsored child.

It works by linking a poor child to an individual/ group who is committed to give a regular gift of P600 a month per child or P7,200 a year. Your monthly pledge is pooled with those of other child sponsors in the Philippines and overseas. Pooling together resources/ donations enables World Vision to maximize the productivity of every peso.

When you decide to sponsor a child, you’ll meet the child that you’ll be sponsoring by receiving a welcome kit that includes your sponsored child’s photo and profile, along with ways to connect and be updated with your new sponsored child.

Sponsorship fosters sustainability. World Vision plans and works alongside community members to help build healthy communities for children.
