The number of doctors who have taken up running not only as a form of exercise but as a lifestyle has increased tremendously over the last several months. They have joined a bandwagon of Filipinos who now apply science in the activity. The health benefits of running come with the right pair of shoes, the fit of the clothes, the proper way for the feet to hit the ground, the appropriate pacing, and the adequacy of hydration. When doctors learn the science, expect them to do it quickly and with confidence.
Running gives a high that is good and healthy for both the doctors and their patients. On May 1, 2011, approximately 1,000 of the 5,000 doctors from all over the country who will be in Manila for the annual convention of the Philippine College of Physicians will spearhead the RUN WITH DOCTORS as a fund-raising activity. The doctors are inviting their patients and the public to join them at the SM Mall of Asia Complex. They may participate in the 3K, 5K and 10K categories.
Registration will be from March 24 - April 25, 2011. For inquiries, please call 703 – 1736 or 910-2252 – 54 or visit http://www.runrio.com./
