The said initiative is spearheaded by Sun Life of Canada (Philippines) Incorporated as it focuses on preparation and prevention as keys to living a robust life. As the country’s top life insurer, it offers three initiatives that are empowering—as they are financially-rewarding: a comprehensive health protection product named ‘SUN Fit and Well’; and a free and informative wellness community called ‘Go Well’.

Rovilson Fernandez, Bubbles Paraiso and Tessa Prieto-Valdes joined Sun Life’s chief marketing officer Mylene Lopa and the event's hosts--Boom Gonzalez and Tippy Dos Santos.

Embodying the message of ‘Go Well’, five ambassadors proved that passion and determination can pave the path to a healthy lifestyle. Apart from the inspiring health story of Pascual, he is joined by Rovilson FernandezBubbles ParaisoJaymee Pizarro, and Tessa Prieto-Valdes as among the five ambassadors who reflect that passion and determination to having a healthy life, which is the primary vision of “Go Well’. Their stories can be viewed in the official website as well as facebook and Instagram (@gowellph) accounts.

‘Go Well’ is a community with a website that provides nutrition tips, exercise ideas, and content about a more mindful life. But more than just an online community, its members can enjoy discounts in partner establishments, as well as free access to regular community classes featuring the hottest fitness trends.

Also according to Sun Life’s chief marketing officer Mylene Lopa, “‘SUN Fit and Well’ provides coverage for 114 critical illnesses and can help replace funds used for diagnostic procedures and check-ups. But more than a usual health insurance, it provides benefits to keep customers healthy and well. It is available in limited pay and Advantage variants, which includes hospitalization and follow-up care with a specialist.”


The Philippines being declared as a diabetic hot spot, ‘Sugar Wars’ pushes for an active lifestyle as one of the best deterrents against this debilitating disease. Participants can choose from distances that include a 500m walk/dash for kids and adults (Php350); 3K (Php700); 5K (Php800); and 10K (Php900). Being an obstacle course, four ‘battle stations’ help facilitate better understanding about this particular illness.

What makes tomorrow’s event more attractive is the after-run show, which serve as the launch of Inigo Pascual’s debut album featuring the official ‘Go Well’ jingle titled ‘Live Life Brighter’ together with surprise performances.

The said fun race launch was held at the Visayas Ballroom of Sofitel Philippine Plaza on October 11, hosted by Boom Gonzalez and Tippy Dos Santos.

Sumera is from Paumbong Bulacan; Baron is from Navotas; and Tiel is from Valenzuela.

The search took four weeks to come up with seven finalists who pitted against each other on its last Saturday leg of elimination rounds. It was also the grand search that evening.

Other finalists included Zoran Historia, Rushwell Ras, Jet Candelaria, and Ronald Pastorfide.

The members of the board of judges that evening was composed of Lilybeth Rasonable, GMA-7’s senior vice-president for entertainment TV; Ricky Lo, entertainment columnist and book author; Frederick Peralta, a multi-awarded Filipino international fashion designer; Neil Ryan Sese, a theater-TV-and film actor; Jaime Acosta, president and CEO of Psalmstre Enterprises, Inc. (the maker of New Placenta for Men); Stephanie Ann dela Rosa, career advisor of STI-Quezon City branch; Mary Pauline Danga, owner-CEO of Team Sir George of Mary Pauline Salon; and Maryo J. Delos Reyes, multi-awarded veteran film and TV director, who is also the CEO of Productions56, Inc.

One of the winners, Mark Baron said, “I feel ecstatic and surprised at the same time when my name was called. I really want to join the Masculados.”

The winners received cash prizes and scholarship grants from STI. The three chosen winners will be trained in dance, voice, acting, and personality development in preparation for the Masculados’ concert in November this year.

The search was because one of its members–Lexter Lazaro will be graduating and will soon be elevated to as an honorary member; while its latest addition David Karell has been tapped by Director Romy Suzara to be introduced in his next film titled ‘Sigaw sa Hatinggabi’.

From the three winners, one will be chosen to eventually replace Lazaro’s spot.

The Masculados also performed their single ‘Cam to Cam’ along with Super Sireyna champion Francine Garcia, which also had a sensuously phenomenal MTV presentation directed by Keith Sicat.
