For Ara, this is not her first-ever initiative, but her second after she did a successful fund-raising concert in Araneta Coliseum back in 2006. A year after, she established the Ara Mina Foundation, which suports children with birth defects.  It is not unknown to many that the 39-year-old star is the sister of Mina Princess Klenk a.k.a. Batching, who has Down Syndrome and will soon be turning 26 this June 1.

During the press conference, she also revealed that Batching is her lucky charm eversince she started in the entertainment industry. She recalled that she auditioned for Star Magic back then but she wasn’t fortunate enough to be included in the cut; but when her sister with Down Syndrome was born—her lucky streak came as she was chosen to be part of the longest-running youth-oriented variety show—‘That’s Entertainment’ which was headed by the late Master Showman at the time—German ‘Kuya Germs’ Moreno.

The upcoming fun ride will be participated by celebrity-volunteers who will be sprinting around the 100-heactare grounds of Ciudad de Victoria, a tourism enterprise zone in Bocaue, Bulacan. In the morning till 10 in the evening, there’ll be ‘tiangges’ or bazaars for those families and visitors who will be coming to the whole-day affair that Ara is putting up. Martin Nievera is set to have a meini-concert in the evening as well.

Ara hopes to raise at least Php1M from the said event.

For interested parties to join the fun run, registration is available via www.runrio.com or at the following sites—Toby’s Sports, Hazelberry Café and Philippine Arena.

For such efforts and services, a dental clinic charges an estimated cost between Php20-48k as opposed to just a four-digit package of products or a few hundreds per product would already do wonder for individuals seeking to have whiter set of teeth in order to attain that glorious smile.

White Glo Diamond Series Whitening System will provide the best teeth whitening results possible as fast, effective and longer-lasting effects for its users. It is formulated with the same ingredients dentists use in clinics to achieve such #smilegoals as bright as diamonds’ luster-kind-of-polish.

The said Diamond Series System consists of White Glo Blue Light Accelerator, Whitening Pen, Toothpaste plus Plaque Seeker Tablet, Bright Nights (Dissolving Whitening Films), Whitening Mouthwash and even a Coffee and Tea Drinkers Formula Whitening Toothpaste.

Available Outlets

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.

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.
