“I believe in education. Everyone deserves education, everyone deserves to be able to study,” shares Mr. Piolo Pascual after asked why he began the SunPiology Run. For the past 6 years, Sun Life has been working with the ever dashing Piolo in hopes of raising funds as well as awareness for the scholars of the Hebreo 12:1 Foundation.



During the recently concluded presscon, Piolo also shared how the SunPiology Run isn’t about getting people to join Sun Life as some might perceive. In fact, when Sun Life approached Piolo 6 years ago, it wasn’t because they wanted him to help them, but because THEY wanted to help him and his foundation. The run is not for the interest of Sun Life but for the foundation. This year, the SunPiology runs introduces something new as they bring the 4 elements of nature together in one adventure-filled run! Check out the complete details below!
