Fox International Channels (FIC) provides a bit of each TV channel’s flavor and a whole lot of fun in the FIC Fun Run on March 25, 2012 at the Bonifacio Global City. Participants can play dress up, hobnob with celebrities and support a worthy cause.
It was an evening of pure delight last night at Decagon Silver City as those who have completed all three required legs of the Run United Trilogy were recognized. It’s an event that was so overwhelmingly positive that even critics and detractors alike were all smiles and forgot their rants!
A different high was experienced by each and every visitor of the newly opened concept store Riovana, the brainchild of Rio dela Cruz, more popularly known as Coach Rio, a prominent figure in the running industry. Wanting to give professional runners and enthusiasts a heightened experience before, during and after each race, Coach Rio came up with the idea of combining a retail store that becomes a one-stop shop for all running gears, apparels and shoes with facilities that can allow members to hang out in the lounge area, register for marathons and even freshen up before and after each race through its available locker and shower rooms.
For the longest time I’ve not heard of any news from this event which apparently had just gone unnoticed and not totally gone, until now—welcome back to the limelight, Yakult 10 Miler!
