PMMA Fest 2013 : Takbo Para sa Marino 5K Fun Run Giveaway

Takbo Para sa Marinong Pilipino


When in Manila, everyone knows that running is an easily accessible activity. Anyone can run and almost everyone concerned with good health does it. You just need a decent pair of shoes, some determination and a lot of discipline. This rigorous cardiovascular exercise allows us to burn an average of 100 calories per mile. This means running 5 miles a day can burn 500 calories, making it a legitimate way to lose weight. Other popular activities, such as biking and walking, only burn a fraction of those calories in the same amount of time.

 The Philippine Merchant Marine Academy Alumni Association, Inc. is cordially inviting all running enthusiasts and families to join the first PMMA Alumni First Host Classes “Takbo Para sa Marino 5k Fun Run” on February 17, 2013 at the Venice Piazza McKinley Hill, Taguig City. Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Seaman’s Welfare Fund.
