A Pursuit for a Healthy and Active Filipino Women
More women in the Philippines are considered inactive whether it is occupational, non-occupational, or leisure-related activities according to a study conducted by World Health Organization (2010). The study also reveals that women are more active in domestic activities than men more than ever. Furthermore, physical inactivity may contribute to coronary diseases, diabetes, and obesity.
This is the reason why Jump Start, Fondo Manila, and Yabang Pinoy are working together to bring the very first GO GIRL! Expo with the theme, “Empowering Healthy and Active Filipinas.”
A GO GIRL! is a well-rounded Filipina that balances life, work, play, adventure, sports and more importantly, knows how to have fun. It promotes a holistic well-being among women.
GO GIRL! Expo will be held on 30-31 May 2015 at the Rockwell Tent in Makati City. This event will be a celebration of every Filipina’s pursuits and women’s success in different fields. It will feature faces of healthy and active Filipinas from different walks of life—from the working Filipina to moms to social women. It will showcase products and services for women from different companies as well.
Furthermore, the expo will also be a source of inspiration as some of these women share their impassioned stories on success and struggle—how they achieve where they are now, and what keep them active despite the daily routine. Their stories will be installed in a gallery wall together with the commitment board.
Come and be part of this milestone that will encourage Filipinas to shift from ordinary women to GO GIRL!
