For the past 7 years, Sunlife has been holding fun runs in the metro for a variety of causes, all aimed towards helping our fellowmen. This year, it’s all about KICKING diabetes.


Did you know that diabetes has affected close to 400 million people worldwide? In fact, the Philippines is among the TOP 15 COUNTRIES with diabetes!  Global health statistics show that the Philippines has become an “emerging hotspot” of diabetes as it affects more than four million Filipinos, apart from those who remain undiagnosed. This is despite the fact that the disease can be prevented and managed with a healthy lifestyle.

This disturbing trend prompted Sun Life-Philippines to dedicate the SunPIOLOgy Run 2015 to the fight to #KickDiabetes and finally halt its escalation.

Since it started in 2009, the SunPiology Run has already raised millions of pesos for education and social services. Every year, the event is made even brighter by the presence of Star Magic’s crowd-drawers including Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu, Maja Salvador, Paulo Avelino, Matteo Guidicelli, Xian Lim, Liza Soberano, Enrique Gil, Ejay Falcon, Iza Calzado, Rayver Cruz, Jessy Mendiola, Robi Domingo, Joem Bascom, JC De Vera, Pokwang, Angeline Quinto, Zarijan Jaranilla, Nash Aguas, Alexa Ilacad, Inigo Pascual, Sofia Andres, Michelle Vito and PBB alumni to name a few.


Stop the Spread

Of course, Sun Life ambassador and Hebreo Foundation founder Piolo Pascual continues to be at the forefront of this annual event. “I’m hoping that this will be the biggest and brightest SunPIOLOgy Run yet. Aside from being able to send more scholars to school, we will also be doing our part in stopping the spread of a debilitating disease such as diabetes. So guys, let’s run together in the name of a healthier and diabetes-free Philippines,” he said.
